That is a good thought! I will mention it to her next time I talk to her. Thanks! Thanks to everyone else to. icon_smile.gif I think I am decided on Antonia's icing. I might have to do a small trial run so I don't have any major suprises to add to a stressful week. icon_wink.gif

You are saying the bride is picking up the cookies and bagging them herself on the Wednesday morning before the wedding. I am assuming she is getting married on the weekend. I did 200 cookie favors for my son's wedding last June. Even with help (five people), it took several hours to bag and tie the favors. This could take her all day. We forget that the cookies have to be handled carefully to avoid breakage and that slows down the process. You might encourage her to enlist friends and family to assist as this is a big undertaking for the week of a wedding. She also needs to make sure the cookie will fit in the bags she has purchased.

i'm surprised nobody's suggested toba's glace? i've never used antonia74's royal but i LOOOOVE toba's. delicious, dries smooth and shiny and beautiful but soft when you bite into it. it's easy to use, too, i just outline and flood in the same consistency. i've stacked and transported cookies with this icing and never had problems. the recipe's in the recipe section, search "toba garrett's glace." just one more option. icon_smile.gif

So can you use crusting butter cream to ice cookies? Will the cookies be ok in a cello bage? Can they be stacked or not? I pray everything works out with your order.

I have always used crusting buttercream and layed them flat in the container they were transported in. This is my biggest order and I know that won't work. So time for plan B. The buttercream is so yummy, I love biting into a soft, sweet cookie with creamy frosting! My absolute favorite! Just not very practical for such large orders.

Thanks for the Toba Garet's Glace idea to. I'll have to look that one up to! icon_smile.gif

Anna, I just posted some monogram cookies that I did for a Bridal Shower and they (IMHO) are very classy yet so easy to make. It would help increase your profit by cutting a lot of time. I got the idea here from a poster named cocobean. You wouldn't have to worry about squishing your piped monogram. If you do decide to pipe I like Antonia's RI because it's very sturdy. However, I have piped words with it that have cracked when packaging and transporting due to the thin lines. Also, I layered my cookies on their sides standing upright before and it saved a lot of room and would be easier on a cookie with a decorated top. I like the idea of using some sort of spacer between your rows (the portion cup mentioned previously.)

Here are the cookies! I am so happy with them! Hopefully my S's will be better on the real cookies. I've decided to use Toba's Glace to frost them and Antonia's RI for the 'S'. They are SOOOO good! My kids keep coming back for more. icon_lol.gif A great big thanks to you all for your help! icon_biggrin.gif
