decorate them the next day because i decorated my cake the before once and it looks weird the next day so my advice is do it next day so it looks fresh

    You could bake them now, and decorate later. Use a fondant type of frosting. Put a slice of bread in the storage container to keep them fresh (plain, not rye, pumpernickel, or any other flavoured bread.

    Awesome question! you should put the icing on the next day right before the party! due to the fact that they will get all moist and wont look good the next day! hope this helps!

    Bake. Cool. Decorate the same day. I do this every year. you want to give the frosting time to set. I make many fancy cookies every year and have cookie decorating parties. I collect cookie cutters…..have hundreds of them.
