Bridal shower season is upon us. Last weekend I attended the celebration of the impending nuptials of a cousin-in-law to be. For favors, I got to help with some occasion-appropriate sugar cookies. I was inspired by the mountains of heart-turned-bride-or-groom cookie images on Google.
The black for the tux was intimidatingly intense. I feared massive color bleed, but it was really not a big deal. A little feathering, and that could probably have been avoided entirely by giving the black another 12 hours to dry.
Since I had to make these ahead of time, my mother-in-law froze them before bagging them as favors, and still, they looked great and tasted just as fresh after 2 weeks of Arctic treatment. I’ve frozen royal icing iced sugar cookies before, and you can read more about how I did it here.
I also made some First Communion cookies at the same time… and I’ll show those off soon too. I’ve got to go get a kid to school!!
