Satin Ice Fondant for cookies - Page 2

post #16 of 30
toleshed, impression mats can be purchased through cake supply websites, or, you can simply go to the craft store and look in the clay section! That's what I use a lot and it's perfectly safe! It's just a rubber mat with designs on it, and you press it against the fondant to leave an impression. It's beautiful and easy!! (Plus if you buy the clay ones at the craft store it's not that expensive!)

Wow, your cookies are great guys, love the impression and packaging as well. I've never done cookies before but your pics made me think about it and I'll give it a try, now, my question is about flavor, which one taste better, RI or SI? icon_eek.gif

Satin Ice definitely! I am not crazy about royal icing. But the fondant (as long as it's well flavored) is really delicious!

Melvira do you flavor your SI?, I've never used it and I just got my first bucket delivered a few days ago and I think it's a great oportunity to use it, I got the white one, no idea if it's flavored, I assumed it was vanilla, I have to check. icon_redface.gif

Dru, I'm not sure who you are asking for a recipe from, would you mind clarifying! icon_wink.gif I won't assume it's me! hehehe.

Miny- you can absolutely add flavoring to the SI, but I find it scarcely needs it. I just meant that fondant tastes excellent on cookies as long as you aren't using Wilton rubber cement fondant. icon_redface.gif Sorry to be harsh but I think everyone on earth agrees that it tastes like poo! But, if you really want to enhance a flavor in the SI, simply knead in a little at a time. You may find you need to add a little PS to balance out the extra moisture though.

I have tried all three..satin ice, other fondants, and Rolled buttercream. Satin ice is easy to work with but...for my family and friends they prefer RBC! It is inexpensive to work with and tastes great!!!

Melvira...if you have a recipe and wouldn't mind sharing...PLEASE go right ahead icon_smile.gif I've never tried making cookies before (well not these type of cookies) and was wanting to make my nephew some for his pre-school graduation and some for my other nephew for his two year birthday AND also some for my mother for mother's day...if you have a great recipe for these cookies (that doesn't expand) I'd be more than happy to use it icon_biggrin.gif You ladies are sooooo talented here and your cookies are soooo elegant. I've been going through the galleries and MAN...there is sooo much talent here! Thanks so much!

I love the idea of using SI for the cookies! I have always used royal icing and it was very messy and time consuming. I love this site! Everyone is so helpful! Allow me to share......last year I opened the doors to my new cake shop. I needed a good cut out cookie recipe. I found it on allrecipes.com and it's the only one I use! The cookies are delicious! (With SI they'll be even better!) Here is the recipe for anyone who would like to try it. icon_wink.gif

Well, I will try not to mock you too much!!! *pointing and laughing* JUST KIDDING!!!! icon_lol.gif

Yes, they are sugar cookies! I think so far my favorite recipe is from "The Flour Pot" Cookie book. (I would post it, but I'm not sure you are allowed to do that with published recipes like that... is that copyright infringement??) If you have not seen this book, you need to run to your library and check it out. You will get SO much inspiration from it! Their cookies are just fun, elegant, and well made! Here is a link to the Barnes and Noble site so you can see which book I'm speaking of: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?r=1&ISBN=9780762425952&ourl=Flour%2DPot%2DCookie%2DBook%2FMargie%2DGreenberg It is really worth looking into!

I haven't really had the chance to try it with the RBC but I am desperately hoping to. Because to me, nothing tastes as good as BC on a sugar cookie! I'm afraid free time to test new things is just at a premium right now, so I haven't been able to! Maybe someday I'll have some time off! Hahaha, that's a good joke! icon_wink.gif
