These cookies were made for a bridal shower/bachelorette weekend in Ohio for a wedding taking place on July 3rd. A dear friend of mine asked me to make cookie favor bags for the bride and her request was inspired by the last batch that I did for my brother’s wedding. So I was able to pull out the edible markers again and try something a little different out with those. We were originally going to use the bride and groom’s initials, but it looked a lot better when I wrote out their names instead. I added the wedding date at the bottom with the pink hearts to add a pop of color and match the other small cookie hearts in the bag. The wedding colors are blush pink and bright pink with touches of silver – so that’s where the silver diamond rings came in.
As I mentioned in my last post – it is very important to let the icing sit for several hours (ideally overnight) before writing with the edible markers to prevent bleed. I even left them under a ceiling fan overnight. Can’t be too cautious right? 🙂
I’ve done a handful of bachelorette party orders now and I’ve learned quickly that there is a very broad range of what people like to have at these events 😉 Sadly some of them are not suitable for this blog, but this order was a perfect fit!
I used bikini-shaped cookie cutters and changed up the colors and decorating to make them a little more fitting for the occasion
Some of my old favorites! They’re quite popular and I love making them 🙂
I have a couple more batches I’ll be working on over the next few weeks, so come back and visit soon! It’s been nice to get back into baking. Even spoiled myself a bit with some new baking pans, tools, and cookie cutters. I actually got my very first custom cookie cutter recently. You’ll be seeing the end result of that one soon!
If you’re in the Raleigh area, you should check out Whisk Carolina in Cary. Great products, cooking classes, very knowledgeable and friendly staff. My new favorite store!
I was recently asked to make some cookie favors for the bridal party of one of my good friends, Laura. We talked about a few options, and she seemed to be a big fan of the champagne glasses I had made for NYE and the diamond rings. We also thought that hearts would always work to add some extra color. She sent me a pic of her bridesmaids dresses so I could try to match the blue. Here is what I came up with:
I’ve changed up the rings a little bit – added posts to the side instead of the diamond taking up the entire top of the cookie
