Wedding Shower Cookies

I’m going to a bridal shower on Sunday for my beautiful niece, Nicole.  I baked these as a surprise and I have to say that I had a really good time creating them.  It took three batches of sweetsugarbelle’s sugar cookies to make 50 large cookies and, instead of making the royal icing from scratch, I used 4 lbs. of CK royal icing.  I’m sure that veteran sugar-cookie bakers could have frosted these in a jiffy but it took me every bit 12 hours to complete them, and comments such as “you’re STILL making those cookies???” did not help :)

I’m not sure if you can see it, but I brushed some rainbow disco dust onto the ruffle after the icing had dried, which added just the right amount of dazzle and sparkle!! (I love disco dust so much that I wanted to brush it over the entire cookie.  After all, the only thing better than “some” sparkle is “more” sparkle.  How-Ever, I resisted temptation…this time…and left well-enough alone.)

Each cookie is wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with a sweet little shiny ribbon.

I can’t wait for Nicole to see the cookies, and I look forward to celebrating the upcoming wedding of two very special people.

  1. Ann, these cookies are more beautiful than any cookie deserves to be!

    PS The sparkle on the ruffle is just enough to set off the dress.

    • Glad you liked the bit of sparkle, Country Mouse. I’m thinking it might be time for some disco dust of your own.

      Just sayin’.

    • Hi!
      The texture on the cookies was made with a 6″ acrylic rolling pin. The one I used was made to resemble lace. These rolling pins are available on ebay (as well as the internet) in a wide variety of patterns and textures. I rolled the fondant with a smooth rolling pin first, and then went over that with the textured pin before cutting it. Hope this helps!
