She Sells Sea Shells

I was able to try out another new cookie cutter this week – the conch shell!  I had a sea shell cookie cutter, but hadn’t used it in a few years.  I was asked to make shell cookies for a rehearsal dinner for a beach-themed wedding and I wanted a couple of varieties of shapes.  Since I had never made the conch shells before, I wasn’t sure how I was going to decorate them, but it kind of evolved over a the course of a few days.  I kept adding a little more detail until I was happy with the way they looked.

So they started out like this…

ImageThen I decided to make them a lil different on the other side…

ImageBut it still felt like something was missing – so that’s where the rest of the detail came in.

I’ve made these sea shells before, but I forgot how much I like them 🙂  I was sticking to all pastel colors, and I tried to keep them in colors that would compliment each other since they were going to be packed in pairs and tied with navy blue ribbon.Image

I even threw in a few of the octopus cookies for fun 🙂  How cute is that lil guy all wrapped up?!

I know that’s a lot of pictures, but these cookies were a long process.  I really enjoyed making them.

I love love love summertime, so these summer-themed cookies are just the best!

Until next time…
