Hello here,


Please share you techniques in terms of fondant-decorated cookies.


I found Fondant-decorated sugar cookies to be too sweet. Do you guys choose another kind of cookie when you decide to decorate with fondant or you just lower the sugar in your sugar cookies (when you want to make them) so they're not so sweet?  


Thank you in advance

My roll out sugar cookies are actually not all that sweet since they are meant to have any number of sugary icings on them... 


My drop sugar cookie dough on the other hand is sweeter, but not overly sweet... they are typically rolled in some type of sugar before baking to make them a even bit sweeter... 


I think it all depends on the recipe one uses... for both the cookie and the icing of choice (fondant included)...

Same here. I have a very sturdy roll-out sugar cookie recipe I use for all my decorated cookies. (I use marshmallow fondant with some royal detail.) They're definitely less-sweet cookies and hold up to the fondant very well.


I tried them once with a different chocolate roll-out cookie recipe that I loved. :P  Nope. Just too sweet. It all depends on that original recipe. I would also suggest thicker cookies work better. Higher cookie-to-fondant ratio!
