Tricia’s Wedding Cookies!

As it grew closer to my best friend’s wedding in October, I thought more and more about what I wanted to give her.  I knew I wanted to incorporate some custom cookies in her gift some how.  I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to do it, so I looked to her registry for some inspiration.   I went to Macy’s with my mom looking for something that might spark an idea.  I stumbled upon a cookie jar/tin that she registered for and I was SO excited!  The rest was easy.  I mean – I’m not going to give someone an empty cookie jar.  That would just be rude 😉

As I searched through the rest of the registry, I picked up a couple other things – one of which was a set of kitchen towels with rolling pins on them.  I decided to pick those up and use the colors in the towels as my color palette for icing.  I debated on shapes to make.  It was a Fall wedding – so do I do leaves?  Do I do a wedding theme?  Hearts?

I went with wedding cakes and hearts because I had never tackled the wedding cake cookie before and I was anxious to try it.  (Plus I can work the leaves into my Thanksgiving batches here shortly.)  I went with the double hearts as well – though it would be cute to personalize them with their initials.

I filled up her cookie jar full of cookies, and I also made gift boxes for all of her girlfriends that came out to celebrate for dinner and drinks the weekend before the wedding on Hilton Head Island.  I found the semi-transparent plastic take-out boxes and iridescent paper at Michael’s  – simple custom party favor that everyone seemed to enjoy.  I was honored that Tricia used some of the cookies just a few days later at the rehearsal dinner.

I have a few more that I will posting soon.  I’ve been a busy baker lately!  I hope that keeping up this blog will inspire and motivate me to bake more often.   Please feel free to reply to any post with any ideas/comments/questions.
