Cream margarine & sugar until fluffy. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt. Add eggs & vanilla. Add dry ingredients, 1 cup at a time.
Mix until good dough is formed. Chill for 1 1/2 hours. Roll out dough, cut cookies shapes, bake on 350^ for 12 minutes. Cool.
Decorate with ready fondant by rolling design sheets over fondant. Cut cookie shapes using identical cookie shape cutter you used on the dough. “Glue” fondant piece onto cookie by smearing some egg white.
