I've eaten their cookies before, and they were very good. The cookie seemed like a basic butter cookie recipe. I don't know what kind of fondant they use - but I think in their book they mention that they buy it (vs. homemade). The fondant tasted light and simply sweet ... it's hard to describe I guess. It was a nice compliment to the cookie. One thing I noticed is that the cookies dried out pretty quickly - within a week they were to hard to bite into. They came with the bag folded over and sealed with a sticker - so maybe if they used a bag sealer they would've stayed fresher. I love the ribbon idea ... but I recently heard that ribbon isn't approved for food use (gosh, I hope that's not the case!). I once suggested to someone attaching ribbon to their cookies and they lady said "Oh no, I just know someone will end up eating it!"
