Last weekend I received a call from a friend asking for some cookies for her sister's upcoming bridal shower. She wanted to give them away as favours for the guests, which I think is such a great idea. She requested 80 weddings dresses with a simple "Thank You" written on them then wrapped in cello and tied with a gold twist tie. I got started as soon as possible since these cookies are a three to four day process (day 1: baking, day 2: flooding, day 3/4: decorating and packaging), and I had a lot to make! I had to break out all 6 of my stacking cooling wracks and I still ran out of space. Once Thursday hit, I was faced with 80+ little white blank canvases. Now, I know I was supposed to write thank you on them, but instead I just went to town with the royal icing and created 80+ different wedding gowns. I couldn't help myself! It was too much fun seeing how the next gown would turn out, because I never really knew when I started a cookie. Here are a couple of pictures of my favourites.
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
