I've been noticing a lot of cookies that are decorated with fondant instead of RI. How much different does the Fondant taste than RI? I love cookies that have RI on them.
i honestly hate cookies with fondant but its personal preference
I won't eat fondant on cake, no matter the brand, no matter the flavor...I don't like the texture.
On a thick sugar cookie though, it's surprisingly good.
I've made it with marshmallow fondant, rolled very thin, and I enjoyed it.
I always use fondant now on my cookies. It tastes a lot better and it's much faster. I like being able to add texture. I always flavor the fondant...butter rum and lemon are my most popular flavors on cookies.
I wanted to add, that I experimented with making marshmallow fondant using real butter, not a flavoring (I normally add 1/2 c. of Crisco), and it was the best I've ever tasted...
The problem was it was really soft and hard to work with it, but I think it had potential, especially for cookies...
Marshmallow fondant is yummy! I've never tried it on cookies but I am sure I'd love it. I am in love with using royal icing. I just enjoy the process as well as the taste. I always flavor it. Flooding the cookies is my favorite part.
I use fondant on all of my cookies. It's so much faster and it really does taste better on a sugar cookie than on a cake.
I use RI on some and Marshmallow Rolled Butter cream - Here is the link for the recipe that I use. http://cakecentral.com/recipe/marshmallow-rolled-buttercream-for-decorated-cookies
It tastes so yummy and has a real butter cream flavor.
