Well, my DH thought I was nuts (but this certainly isn't the first time). After looking at all the gorgous cookies here on Cake Central, I decided that I wanted to my hand at decorated cookies. I couldn't make up my mind which recipes to try. So I tried them all! I ended up making three cookie recipes that seem to be most popular here (NFSC, Martha Stewart's and also the Cream Cheese Sugar cookies). Then I decided to try four frostings (MMF, Antonia's Royal, Alice's Icing and Toba's). What fun! I ended up with 8 sets of 12 combinations (the rest got eating during baking/decorating). It's amazing how much the cookie taste changes with the various icings! Then everyone I know has been asked to do "blind" taste tests to help me figure out which recipe I want to keep as my standard. It's been so much fun and I've learned ALOT so I will definitely be better decorating next time!
And, yes, these all ALL my cookie cutters at the moment...I really need to get more! (And, yes, I got all the ideas for the designs from other wonderful designers at Cake Central. Thanks for the great ideas.)
But I do have a question....this was my first time with fondant and I didn't roll it out thin enough. (I used the Wilton fondant roller with 1/8" space rings.) Any suggestions for getting it both thinner and consistant? I LOVE the spacer rings but can't seem to find anything smaller than 1/8"???
I have become SO addicted to sugar (AND THIS WONDERFUL WEBSITE) in the 7 weeks I've been decorating. Wahoo!!!
