I use buttercream sometimes as i love the test and friends and family love them, as mentioned though not a great idea for transporting ;-)

I  only use fondant as well. It can be flavored and you can do some techniques that you can't with royal icing plus there is no drying time which I love. I use my cookie cutters too to cut out the basic shape and then add in the detail.

NO, NO, and NO.

 

I don't like Royal Icing on cookies so I searched for an alternative icing that will harden and still be delicious.  And I found it on CC.  It's called Toba Garrett's Glace' Icing.

 

It's perfect!  It dries nicely and you can stack your cookies without damaging the tops.  The icing is dry but not hard and brittle like Royal Icing.

 

Enjoy.

I use poured fondant. very easy to decorate with when in a food safe squeeze bottle.After I am done with it I put it in the fridge and take it out and use again and again.I have so many colours made up and ready to go in my fridge at all times.
