Confession time. After attending Cookie Two Shoes Spring Fling this past weekend, I am thoroughly embarassed to show you these pictures. In fact, I'm pretty much petrified of all the photos I've ever taken of my cookies. Glory from Glorious Treats shared some awesome photography tips, none of which I used when taking these photos. Unless you count my lame attempt at layering.
Oh well, there's always next time.
I recently received a request (yay alliteration!) for damask print bachelorette cookies. Evidently the bride to be hates pink and extreme girliness in general. Sounds like her and I would get along well! :) The host of the shower chose a classic damask print with black and blue as the main colors.
Here's the irony though...these cookies are still girly.
Which, I guess, is the unwritten rule for all bachelorette parties.
The hostess gave me cookie creative freedom.
Originally, I had this grand idea of doing all damask print backgrounds with the words written on top of them. I made one cookie like that and realized how preposterous of an idea it was. First of all, that darn damask print took me for.ev.er. Secondly, the words didn't show up well.
I used my Wilton extra fine tip food marker for precision and ease.
Plus these cookies were traveling a long distance in the car and I HATE chipped black icing.
I love how it looks like a sugar sheet.
So I scrapped the idea of doing them all that way and came up with the various designs you see below. I'm absolutely obsessed with the elegant simplicity of these cookies. Brushed with a little luster dust provides the perfect sparkling finish. And I do love sparkles.
Wait...did I say I wasn't girly? Hmm...
Happy Bachelorette party Heather! I hope you had a great time!
