Thanks, Kjjs! I have not yet ventured into cakes, but my daughter is. I had read the idea of using the metal spackle/putty knife and we will give it a try! Thanks for explaining it!

Well, guess what! Metal is a conductor of heat! dunce.gif As I was re-cutting the cookies that came out of the oven, the metal cutter was getting hotter and hotter in my hand. It never got hot enough to burn ... but hot enough where I'm cursing myself a bit!

So be forewarned .... and be careful with all-metal cutters! icon_wink.gif



Great advice indydebi! Never thought of that!

I do have to add my endorsement for this technique too, though. Makes them look so much better, too!

Does anyone know what to do about cookies on sticks! I haven't done this as the stick is in the way, but is there any way to cut them as soon as they come out of the oven as well? icon_confused.gif

I used the tip to re-cut the cookies, too, as bigger cookies weren't going to fit in the favor bags for my niece's wedding. My only complaint was that by doing this, there were a lot more cookie crumbs to deal with. I'd still highly recommend re-cutting, just be aware of the crumbs problem. I used a copper cutter (the "Just Married" car cutter from ecrandal.com), and while I noticed the cutter getting warmer with each cut, it wasn't too bad. I'm thinking a tin cutter might have been more of a problem. The nice, thick copper ones take longer to heat up!

For the couple of people that mentioned sticks. I insert my sticks after the cookie is baked (this also allows me to bake a full tray of cookies at a time instead of half b/c of the room the stick takes up) I have had better luck with this. As the cookie cools it "shrinks" around the stick and helps hold it. I have never had problems with the cookie coming off of the stick this way.

Just another idea. This way you can cut the cookie, insert the stick, and then lay the fondant on while the cookie is still warm. Still getting that clean look.
