Here I go again. It must seem to all of you that I have become obsessed with wedding cookies lately. Guilty as charged.
The New York City shopping trip over the weekend did indeed result in Genevieve saying "yes to the dress". She purchased it at a really fantastic bridal store called The Bridal Garden. It is a non-profit salon featuring designer and couture gowns donated by stores and designers with the profits going to children's education in New York City. Click here to find out more about this really incredible charity. Now this is a wedding concept I can get behind. Genevieve got a stunning Vera Wang at a very deep discount and and the money goes to a wonderful cause. I'd describe the dress and/or show pictures, but it is a deep dark secret to be kept from her inquisitive fiance. Sorry Drew, my lips are sealed. Hee, hee, hee.
The cookies above are my take on wedding bouquets. Using a sea shell cutter for the top and a golf club cutter for the bottom, I came up with the shape (I do think that a tree cookie cutter would do an admirable job, however). Have to say, I love the three dimensional look that the flowers give to the cookie. I had been on a royal icing flower kick last week making roses in yellow, white, pink, and orange. My favorite little accent flower is kind of like a little pansy with a green dragee center - cute, cute, cute.
Continuing with my royal icing rose frenzy, I made these tiffany blue hearts with scroll work and a white roses. I would love these in any number of color combos, but what I am thinking of now is a fall theme. Couldn't you picture these in a brown icing with burnt orange embellishments? I am thinking about fall today because we in the midst of a despicable heat wave and I am hiding out in the air conditioning pretending it didn't make me sweat going out to get the mail.
How about some cookies for a destination wedding? Inspired by a tropical sunset, I think these would be a knock out favor for a beach wedding. Palm trees, hammock, sunset, umbrella drink in hand...aaaaaah. The next time though, I will make them with no pink, more red and more orange like these. I thought more pink would be pretty. It wasn't.
There are some changes that will be coming to my blog soon, but I will have to fill you in on them a bit later. Stay tuned!
