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.
