what tastes better with cookies RI or fondant?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
i've recently started to make sugar cookies and have only iced them in royal icing. but i was to experiment and use fondant as it has a more matt finish. however will it taste nice?

If you use Rhondas Ultimate fondant from this website, it will taste delicious.

I myself don't like the hardness of RI and I don't think it has much taste, actually has a strange chalkiness to it. I prefer Satin Ice Fondant and use RI for details. I love the taste of SI, but it's definitely a personal choice what you decorate with. Michele Foster's Fondant is delicious too if you want to make your own.

I started out using Antoina's RI and it tastes good, but, after having tried Rhonda's MMF, I will never go back. It is so YUMMY. icon_biggrin.gif I use it as my base and then use the RI for accenting.

Michelle - are you Michelle Foster?
Do you have to refrigerate her fondant since it has butter and milk in it? Thats one of the things I like about Rhondas. Just store it away and no refrigeration

I am deathly afraid of making my own fondant or MMF...lol. I know, but the thought of that freaks me out! I dont use SI enough to justify ordering it. I do like RBC, but I dont like how shiny it always looks. Sometimes I want a matte feel to the design. Still trying to figure out how to "dull" it down a bit.

maybe i'll have to just give the MMF a try and face that fear head on! hahahah

I love RB (rolled buttercream) on my cookies. It's like fondant but tastes more like BC. For me, it is more greasy initially but once it's on cookies, it tastes great and I flavor mine with twice the amount of flavoring it calls for. Then I decorate with Antonia's RI.

The only reason I don't flood is I don't have the patience! icon_cool.gif

Aswartzw, I too decorate w/ RBC & detail w/ Antonia's. It is greasy initially, but I like to gently wipe it w/ a paper towel to degrease, right after applying--before it hardens.

Is there a way to dust it with pwd sugar or even lightly with cornstarch? I have never thought about wiping it down with paper towel, I think i'd be to worried about any fibers being left behind. I'll give it a try tho'...

I use bounty & they don't really have fibers. The bounty napkins are awesome too!

oh give MMF a try. Its not hard, just messy. But so worth it. I just started in february of this year and I figure if I can do it, anyone can do it. lol

My following of customers who love MMF on cookies is growing and growing. That and Toba's Glace flavored with a touch of butter flavoring.

Where can I find the recipe for Rolled Butter cream? When I searched it in recipes I didn't get any hits.

The MMF is not that bad to make and I didn't think it was messy.

Thanks
