Has anyone made dummy display cookies before? I would like to make Christmas cookie platters for display ahead of time, but also preferable that they can be used for 2 or 3 years. I was thinking of using a hard gingerbread-type dough that will last (e.g., like @Teri Pringle Wood's keepsake cookies), but am wondering if there is anything else that can be used?
Has anyone done this? Does anyone have ideas?
I worry if I would use Styrofoam (airbrushed the right colour) that the RI (royal icing) would flake off.
