I want to order a wedding cake cookie cutter "texture set" from Kitchen Kraft. The set includes a texture mat that says to be used by placing it over crusted icing and roll over once with a small rolling pin and remove leaving a decorated wedding cake design on it. This is such a time saver for me in decorating about 200 weddng cookies! But, here's the question... Can this process be used with fondant? I read a thread here about cutting out fondant with the same cookie cutter and placing it on the cookie just as it comes out of the oven and it will adhere to the cookie as it cools. Perhaps using the texture mat at the same time would produce an imprint or wait until it is cool. Any thoughts from the pros?????????

I would texture the fondant then cut it out.
There's some great tutorials here:

having just done this last night....I baked my cookies and as they were cooling rolled my fondant out, used my mat and then cut fondant circles. The cookies were cooler, but my fondant stuck to most of them. The ones that they didn't stick to, I just brushed the cookies with just a bit of water and that made the fondant stick.
