from a sketch to a finished cookie. when a bride is getting married, money is not what gets you the best dress, cake, or cookie. it’s the people surrounding the bride.
her name starts with a J. the groom’s name starts with a B. can you see the connected J and B?
her absolute favorite animal is the butterfly. can you see the butterfly?
her absolute favorite color is purple. can you see the purple?
details like that only come from years of friendship that bakeries can’t offer. and that is why i love baking, because it’s a delicious way of showing some love.
and now, the transformation from a naked cookie to a pretty cookie!
the wedding was on may 30. but instead of writing 3-0, I made the 0 into a heart shape. so it was May 3♥ . isn’t that so much cuter!?
icing notes: when I first learned how to ice cookies, i followed the icing recipe from cookie craft. however, i don’t have the book with me at the moment so I don’t remember the measurements. but regardless, i actually don’t do any measuring anymore. i just start mixing a few tablespoons of egg whites, a few tablespoons of water, a few drops of vanilla extract, and slowly add powdered sugar until I get the consistency I want. it’s hard to explain, but it’s something you just have to play with. one day i’ll write better details.
PS: i have nothing against bakeries! they make a lot of beautiful and delicious things. but it’s hard to be close to them when you don’t share a room with them for an entire year :)
