Well I have seen Ace of Cakes so many times that I can tell you if you frost the cake before you use the fondant, it works like a glue. Big plus. Also, I wouldn't use excessive amounts of it.
As far as the cookies, I am not sure. Most cookies (in my opinion) are sweet and full of stuff already and don't really need decoration.
Good luck and have a great night.
To get into the business of actually selling cookies and cakes that are decorated, you need to get with a bride and provide the cake for the bridal shower for free. Have a stack of your cards there and maybe ask her to announce that you are just getting into the business and here is your work! Same for Bridal Showers, birthdays, etc. You will get lots of business that way if your cakes are delicious. Also...get into the business of making cupcakes. They are very hot these days.
Check with Williams-Sonoma, Michaels craft stores, or whatever kitchen/craft stores are in your area. They'll have classes....
