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…
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.
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…
