Have you ever seen over 50 brides in the same room?
Me neither, (until now). ;-)
I was asked to make 50 bride cookies and 50 apple cookies for a bridal shower. There are actually more than 50 here though; I always make extra in case some break or don’t turn out the way I like them to.
The general bridal shower decorating theme was green apples, if you’re wondering what Granny Smith decorated cookies are doing on these cake tiers. I mixed Ateco Avocado Gel Color and Ateco Electric Green Gel Color together to try and get the right shade of green.
They are sugar cookies decorated with royal icing. As usual, I used Peggy Porschen’s sugar cookie recipe as well as her recipe for royal icing.
Thanks to Susan, flickr user Andovercookiemama for the idea of the white line to indicate light reflection on the cookie. It added a bit more to just a green apple (I think!)
The bride-to-be has brown hair and some jewelled details around the empire waist of her wedding dress, so I tried to replicate some of the details using Non-Toxic Disco Dust. Thank you to Wedding DNA for inspiration with the bride design.
Here they are packaged up and ready to go.
I hope the bride-to-be is happy with them!!
