Custom Cuts: Soon To Say “I Do!”

15 Feb

Last week, my longtime friend, and one of my biggest supporters, Gillian, contacted me for two custom cut orders.  The first was for a co-worker who got engaged over the weekend.

We hemmed.  We hawed.  And we came up with hearts – it seemed apropos with Valentine’s Day just around the corner.

Since the bride-to-be is from North Carolina, we decided Carolina blue (er, in royal icing world that equals light blue) with white hearts.

Gillian then asked me to add a line on each of the cookies from the the “Something old/Something new” adage.  A cookie with “I Do!” and “Congrats!” gave it the prefect touch of personalization.

So, here’s a secret – I don’t even like hearts (gasp!).  Hey, at least I waited to break that bit of news until the day after Valentine’s day!  That said, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the design for these cookies.  So simple, yet playful.

Kudos to Gillian for the idea!  I hope they looked just like you envisioned.

Valentine’s Day Cookies

9 Feb

I know.  I’m sorry.  Valentine’s Day is a mere 5 days away and I’m just now posting these.  Well, let’s just say these are meant for Valentine’s Day, but could be used for showing love throughout the year.

Cheesy.  But makes me feel less guilty.  Enjoy.

Oh!  And if, by chance, you want to order any… let me know ASAP.

These would also be great for an engagement party.  Just another idea.
