I knew I wanted to make the heart shaped bridal gown and tuxedo cookies that I have always admired. I am not fond of black cookies, so this was a "golden" opportunity to create the tux in another color. While I like the gold tux for a cookie, I certainly hope that Ron did not actually wear one of these back in 1962 (but it is a definite possibility)!
Since I was creating platters of cookies for their guests to enjoy, I wanted more than just heart cookies.
I added the wedding cake, diamond ring, and "joy." I know this is really a Christmas cutter, but it fits so many special occasions and can be used year round.
I have a confession to make. . . the Cookie Fairy helped me with this collection.
While I iced them, I was not happy with the colors or the designs. Nothing seemed right. I worked late into the night in order to finish them and went to bed feeling slightly defeated.
My Cookie Fairy, however, spun her magic during the night as I slept, because the collection in morning's light was much nicer than I had remembered!
This is how the tray was arranged, but I had a slight problem. I had more cookies than one tray could hold.
Ron and JoAnn's family and friends will have lots of cookies to enjoy during the celebration, but I also wanted them to have their own special selection. (After 50 years, they DESERVE their own cookies!)
Thanks to BRP of Clinton, Iowa, http://www.brpboxshop.com/, I had the perfect box for this personal gift.
