Royal icing, Alice's Modified Royal, Marshmallow fondant, Rolled buttercream, poured sugar icing, glace icing......all will work nicely to decorate cookies like you want BUT they all contain allot of sugar.
Would a sugar substitute work for you? Like Splenda or Truvia? Now I am gonna say this first: "I have never tried this myself..... but how about trying one of the above mentioned frostings and add the Splenda/Truvia and see if it works?
Powered Sugar Replacement:
2 cups of nonfat dry milk powder
2 cups of cornstartch
1 cup of granulated sugar replacement
Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Whip until well blended and powdered.
Use in the following recipe.
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 tsp clear vanilla
3/4 cup of powdered sugar replacement from above
1 tablespoon milk
Cream together shortening and vanilla until light and fluffy. Stir in powdered sugar replacement & milk until mixture is well blended. Adjust stiffness to suit. Makes 1/2 cup.
** This is not my recipe and I don't know where I got it to give credit to. I think from someone called FoodGuy,but not sure. I some times add a drop of butter flavor and no more as it is too strong.
