Ohio Wedding

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? 🙂

Bridal Shower Cookies

Happy Friday!

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post.  I’ve been so busy actually making cookies (and working) to be able to post about making cookies.  I’m trying to catch up.  I have a couple batches to post about, but I wanted to start with this one.  This order was just picked up yesterday for a bridal shower this weekend.  It was an order I received after making the bridesmaids cookies that I posted in January.  Very similar order, but different colors.

Since these were cookies that I have done before, I feel like I’m getting  a little better at them.  People have asked me if I get bored making the same types of cookies for multiple orders – definitely not.  I feel like each time I make a certain shape/style of cookie, I improve it in some way.  I learn from the time before.  I either find a more efficient way to do it, or find ways to make it look just a little bit better.  So I like getting the practice.  Plus I’m always trying new things with design.  Keeps it fun!

I hope you all have a great weekend!  I will be posting more very soon 🙂
