Do you seriously like the taste of fondant on cookies???? - Page 4

post #46 of 49
I adore marzipan but only shell out the $$ to buy it around the holidays. I've never thought to use it to decorate a cookie, only bake into cookies (yummmm). How does it handle? I've never used marzipan to cover a cake, either.

Gemini, I would never have guessed you use glace icing for your cookies since they are so detailed. How do you manage it? I've been doing glace for the base and royal for the details but I'd love to find a way to use glace for everything.

I just bought a 7+lb can of almond paste much cheaper than the small cans or rolls, so maybe I'll try making some marzipan to roll on some cookiesicon_smile.gif I love the taste!

I have made it too, it is less $ and even tastes better, to me. the only thing is marzipan is by nature granular and a creamy tan. the ready made is smooth and pristine white. I still like the homemade better!

I made cookies with fondant once, and will never do it again. I think that the fondant "kill" the good spice smell of my gingerbread cookies. And I just did not like the chewy taste of it. And also I find out, that for me is more fun to hand decorate them with RI.
