While everyone else in the good old US of A was preparing for their Thanksgiving feast, I was hunkered down assembling and decorating a hundred engagement cookies!! Why oh why did the bride-to-be schedule her party on the Saturday after Thanksgiving?
I had planned ahead and baked, partially decorated, and froze the cookies a few weeks prior, but on the day before Thanksgiving I was madly making fondant flowers and embellishing my mini masterpieces.
I experimented and made a few cookies using 4 different plaque/frame cutters. One frame cutter by Ann Clark had a long, narrow shape that was perfect for writing out a message.
plaque cutters came in a set of three that were also very cute. BTW, the bride's color is blush.
And some in the "Save the Date Design"... Oops sorry I didn't take a picture of that one.
I had some Snuggling Doves...
And some Mini Wedding Cakes. Actually a lot of mini cakes. When I was planning the cookies I thought these were the cutest design, but my finished minis didn't turn out as precious-looking as I had hoped.
I guess in the end my favorite turned out to be a simple round cookie decorated with a bouquet of flowers.
Simple and elegant. Not too busy and not over the top. If I every have to make another batch of engagement cookies, I just going to make these.
