Do you prefer RI or fondant for large batches of cookies? - Page 2

post #16 of 53
pattycakes55d - If you decide to go the corn syrup route, thin it with water. It is way too thick out of the bottle.

Also, in answer to your freezing question, yes, I do it all the time.

You can bag them individually, even to the point of putting ribbon and/or card toppers on them, put in a container, and freeze. I have kept them for up to a month. Be sure your ri details are dry before bagging.

You can also layer them between wax paper, put in a container and freeze, if you aren't ready to bag them. Let them sit on the counter, in the container to thaw, it doesn't take very long.

linedancer, thanks for the tips and am I ever relieved that you can freeze as I know I'm not that good, so I'll take longer and I can start this weekend. I'll try both corn syrup and not and let you know.

I always saw how pretty the cookies were and envied others who could do it. I don't think I would even have tried to make cookies because I'm new and was afraid of RI. Having fondant as an option is one that I love. I think others in my same boat will try it now too. Thank you CCers, I am grateful and very appreciative of the warmth, support and bountiful knowledge I've received. Merry Xmas to you and your families !

Thank you for the tips Linedancer.

The bride got my samples and they decided that they like the MMF on the cookie so that is the way we're going. Yay.

For large batches I prefer Royal Icing because you can work faster. For small batches or quick cookies I sometimes use fondant but it´s like making the cookie again because you have to roll it, cutting, etc... But like someone said, royal icing takes pratice.

Hi ladies! I'm new to the cookie thread and was just wondering- when you talk about placing fondant on the cookies- do you cut it with the same cutter you cut the cookie and then just place on the cookie while it's still warm? Thanks,
Rosie

Yes, that's correct. Have it cut out and ready to place on the hot cookies. Place on cookie, smooth all over with your finger and that's pretty much it!
You can either be thin and wrinkly or you can eat another piece of cake and fluff those things out!

I use Rhonda's Ultimate MMF recipe found on this site. It has turned out great everytime and is rated a 10 by MANY reviewers. I only use the vanilla flavoring and not the other she lists-- just don't have it and it is still great.

I use Rhonda's recipe too and it's not too sweet. Good luck with yours. I'm doing mine for the first time today.

great info!

I've never used the fondant, and I only use MMF on cakes, but the real question for me is, how thick do you roll the fondant out for the cookies? I mean, do you roll it really thin so it melts into the cookie? Or about as thick as you would for a cake? Thank you.

Vicky I don't like the look of thick fondant, on cakes OR cookies, so thin is best in m opinion.

Here's a thread wtih how I do the fondant, plus some pics of before-n-after, the re-cut when they come out of the oven: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-649283-tshirt.html

Thank you, that's what I figured. The first link didn't work, but saying to put them on thin is good enough. Thanks again. Sorry I butted in on someone elses post!
