When decorating cookies with fondant...

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I'd like to try decorating cookies with fondant. What do you use under the fondant to make it stick to the cookie? I usually use Toba Garrett's recipes; so I use her glace icing, which I love. Can I use the glace icing on the cookie, then just stick the fondant to that before it dries. Thanks so much!

I use thinned corn syrup to adhere the fondant to my cookies. This is after the cookies are cooled. Some folks precut their fondant and then put it on the cookie while it is hot, so it adheres without syrup.

I don't use anything. I'm one of the ones that puts it on the cookie right out of the oven thumbs_up.gif

Ditto Mamarobin. I tried this for the first time a couple of months ago and it works like a dream. I even stamped an impression while it was still warm.

I spray the cookie with a fine mist of water. The fondant sticks perfectly. All of the techniques work. I go for the cheapest and easiest so that I can spend my time decorating. Have fun.

I tried this and they all popped off. I had to go back and use corn syrup on all of them. Do you happen to know why that happened?

Does anyone know if I'd be okay to put the fondant on top of the glaze icing?

After giving other methods a try, corn syrup has been the best method for me.

I use a small brush and use vanilla syrup from Starbuck's on the back of the fondant and put it on when the cookie is cold. Never had any problems.

I too put the fondant on the "hot" cookies. It enables me to shape the fondant to match the cookie if the cookie has spread a little. You can also soften the edges of the fondant so it looks more like a glaze. Using too much of something under the fondant will cause some ridges and bumps in your finished product.

I tried putting fondant on hot cookies and they just ended up popping off while decorating or bagging. When i use fondant, i use piping gel to adhere it to the cookie.
I agree with cookies4kids, I don't think glace would work under the fondant because it may dry bumpy or wavy and that will show through the fondant.

luvs2bake---are you putting the fondant on the cookies the minute they come out of the oven? My stick like glue and there is no way they are coming off. I tried to do it your way and I have such a mess icon_sad.gif It's funny how different things work for different folks.

Yes, the last time i tried this i put the fondant shapes on right when the cookies came out of the oven. They seemed pretty stuck at that point but when they cooled, off they popped!
It's funny and it's weird how we could be doing the same exact thing but have different results completely. Go figure.
