Maybe I should name this post: A trend that I don’t think will last. I took the designer cookie class workshop over the weekend at my local Viking Cooking School. It was fun. Chef Bryan from a local TV station was our chef. I hung out with my amazing design assistant Kara while we decorated Halloween cookies and learned some cool techniques using sugar cookies, fondant and royal icing. But even without eating any of the cookies, I’m pretty sure fondant on a cookie is a bad idea. Sure, it can look pretty (don’t look at my cookies for an example of that) but everyone knows that fondant doesn’t taste good. And cookies are supposed to taste good. Honestly, I don’t know where this trend is going. Let’s rank frosting by taste: 1. fondant (not so yummy) 2. royal icing (better, but really not yummy) 3. buttercream (yummiest). My prediction: I don’t see much of a future for cookies covered in yucky frosting. Proof: even my somewhat-sugar-starved kids wouldn’t eat them.
