Question by angelkate0110: About how many ounces of frosting/icing would you need for about 3 dozen gingerbread cookies?
I am having a Christmas party soon and I would like my friends and I to decorate gingerbread cookies. I don’t know how many containers of frosting I need to buy! Also, can you just use cake frosting or is it completely different from cookie frosting? Thank you!

Answer by megaan,
It depends on how large the cookies are and how much icing you are using. Just off the top of my head i would go with about 7-8 ounces to be on the safe side, plus if you dont use it all you can keep it for another time. I would not use cake frosting as it wont give the same affect. I would buy or make royal icing or even buttercream icing. Recipes for those are everywhere!
