I have not tried Toba's but I absolutely love Antonia's. The taste was great, easy to make and easy to work with.
Cake's a powerful food. Cake can actually bring people together. You know... "It's Bill's birthday" "Yeah, I hate that guy." "There's cake in the conference room." "Well, I should say hello."-Jim Gaffigan

I love Toba's glaze and have not tried Antonia's. One thing people were finding with Toba's, myself included, was that they take forever to dry and still have a tacky touch to them. They also loose their brilliant shine when dry.

So, Sarah Phillips did some research and it had to do with sugar and milk crystalizing or something. There is a whole thread about it on baking911.com.

She came up with a similiar recipe that replaces some quantities and the milk for water and solved the problem. I have not tried the recipe yet, but here it is...

There is also this poured fondant I want to try as well;

Another vote for Antonia's icing, although I haven't tried Toba's yet so I can't compare them.

I've been making cookies for about 6 months now, and have given and sold them to lots and lots of people, and without exception people tell me they're perfect and I shouldn't ever change the recipe, LOL!

Some day I do plan to try some of the other recipes, but Antonia's is easy to make, easy to use, and the results have been great for me.

It's in several places here, I think, but I would recommend checking out her tutorial (titled How To Bake And Decorate Cookies) that can be found on the home page or under the Articles tab.

It has the recipe, plus her technique for making awesome looking cookies.

hth!

Okay, my ears were burning!!! icon_twisted.gif Actually Twins ..you are correct...I've only really used buttercream on mine....I haven't branched out into cookies yet.

I did however use Toba's glace once intending to put it on cookies, but I used it for a FBCT instead on my Indian's jersey cake...I loved working with it.
