Good morning everyone! I have an order for 200 cookies due next week and I'm stumped on how to achieve the look. They would like the cookies to say "Bows, Ties & Revelry" on them. Simple enough I guess.

 My initial thought was to cover the cookies in fondant and then handwrite the words but maybe there's a more efficient way to accomplish this? I tend to be afraid of royal icing FYI. (plus I'm not even sure that's the best way to go about this cookie).  I also have an airbrush machine so that is an option. What would you guys do?  Thank you in advance!

Do you have a way to turn that into an edible image?

Thanks for responding Kimmiesue! I JUST purchased a printer for edible images and I ordered the frosting sheets and ink. The problem is, when I checked the tracking, it looks like my ink won't arrive until after the cookies are due.  :(

You might be able to order the prints online.  I've never used them before but google gogocakes.

Ugh.  That's the only thing I can think of - I know there are those with royal icing and piping skills, but if I had to tackle that, I'd just sit down and cry.

i vote for the edible ink markers -- if you get the right kind they are excellent for this -- these americolor gourmet writers:

 

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0012DMI1S/?tag=cakecentral-20 --

 

cutting a stencil for your air brush is also a great idea -- i'm not that good at capturing all that detail in the font in a stencil that i cut but maybe you'd do better at that than me -- you and by you i mean me could at least spray that bow on then outline it with the markers --

 

that fine of details would show good on a nice smoothy smooth surface like fondant or royal -- but not on the plain cookie top --

 

best to you

 

it would be cute to actually make a fondant bow too y'know a 3-d bow or pipe a royal icing one -- ridiculous to transport though -- have to get creative with the packaging --

 

best to you

but as far as a stencil goes -- you could get the ghost of the wording and bow sprayed onto the cookie with the airbrush then just add the outlining to get the font/bow details -- or just use the stencil with the markers too -- it's nice to have all that wording mapped out -- the less i have to think the better

you can trim the tips of the americolor writers to make a fine line marker too

Now that's an excellent idea!  Thank you for the suggestion.

Hi, I know you are waiting on sheets and ink for your own printer. 

 

I would print it the size you need and take it to a grocery store or a cake shop with a printer, who ever does edible images, and get them made for me. 

 

 

Then you only have to bake the cookies and fondant or ice them and add the images.  200 is a lot to make, and draw or write on them.  That is just my opinion.  Good luck!!!!

Thank you for the suggestion! Luckily, the event coordinator changed his request so instead of having the image ON the cookie, he wants the logo printed on a round label and placed on the cello bags that the cookies will go in.  Whew! Crisis averted until next time!

Good morning all! just wanted to share the finished product in case anyone was curious.  250 cookies covered in fondant and individually packaged. 

PS- if you ever wondered how much fondant you would need to cover this many cookies... A LOT.  I used abt 5lbs of satin ice :shock:
