10 dozen cookies for "practice" - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I know this is a little off topic, but do most people here use a pasty bag and tip or a squeeze bottle to flood cookies? I had a heck of a time with the bag, icing leaked out everywhere! Kind of makes me scared to try again!
If at first you don't succeed, eat it and start all over!

I mostly use parchment bags and sometimes the plastic disposable (hate the cost though since I go through so many). I've used the squeeze bottles, but hated filling and cleaning them - but I know some swear by & love them. The bottles would cure your leaking problem.

Do you know if you can put a tip on the bottles or do they have a built in tip already that you're stuck with? Thanks for your reply, by the way!

The bottles I bought came w/ a plastic tip (#2 I think) and coupler. But yes, you can use any standard wilton tip in its place.

I'm a big fan of using rolled buttercream instead of the marshmallow fondant - a little less sweet. If you decide to experiment again, I'd give that a try!

The rolled buttercream sounds yummy....but it looks like a LOT of work (and I'm basically lazy) icon_surprised.gif)

I don't think it is any more work than the MMF - it mixes up fast and easy, and you can roll it and cut it with cookie cutters. Your cookies look great, by the way.

Oh please post your photos. I just love looking at the pictures (my husband is starting to wonder EXACTLY what kind of website I browse on for so long!) icon_redface.gif

I've only made cookies twice (the past two weekends). And they take WAAAYYYY too long (about an hour per 8 cookies). But I LOVE THEM. So much more fun than cakes!

Sure - here are 2 cookies I did recently for a wedding shower - it is rolled buttercream with royal icing details.

WOW! Tkeys. They are beautiful. So dainty with lots of details. You must have a lot of patience. icon_surprised.gif)

Thanks! Actuall, they were pretty fast. The rolled buttercream covers the whole cookie. The heart-shaped cookies just have dots on them, then a pink dot on the V of the heart, and few dots to make the pearls. They were pretty simple. The dress was also just dots to make the dress, and the sash was created with a flattened "snake" then outlining the bottom and the sleeves.

I put a little shimmer dust on the hearts, too. They actually were pretty simple to decorate. I borrowed the idea from cookies I saw on this site, so I can't take any credit for creativity.
