Mad about Cookie Cutters

Teapots and Teacups

I mentioned in a previous post that there were more cookie cutters in the mail. I received them not long after and made a few “test” cookies. But with other exciting distractions like fruit ganaches and new macaron flavours, I never got round to writing an entry about them.

So without further ado, I present decorated cookies, part II:

Teapots & Teacups

              Teapots and Teacups

The design ideas for the teapots and teacups came from Peggy Porschen’s delightful books. Browsing through the book, I immediately fell in love with the roses and leaves design. But when I actually got round to decorating the cookies, I found that I liked the ones with the tiny hearts the best.

Yes, I’ll be the first to admit that it was a little OTT to go for the two-toned design, but I think they look so much prettier this way!

Baby Shower Cookies

              "It's a Girl" Cookies

These baby-themed cookies were made after a client asked about decorated cookies for her baby boy’s one-month party. Don’t be deceived by the photographs; these cookies are HUGE!

              "It's a Boy" Cookies

The baby-themed cutters came in a set of 10 different shapes. My favourites were the baby wagon, milk bottle and pacifier. There was also an adorable umbrella shaped cutter, but the cookies tended to break easily because of the slim umbrella handle.

Tux & Gown Cookies

I loved the way these wedding-themed cookies turned out, except that the tuxedo turned out wrinkley. I suspect that I was too generous with the chocolate in the black icing. Any other ideas on why the tux turned out looking like distressed leather are more than welcome! On the bright side, I guess it could work for a rock-and-roll themed wedding!! :)

Other than that, I was really pleased with the lovely details like the buttons, pockets and lacey swirls on the tux and gown. Design credit goes to Ms Porschen as always!

Romantic Red Roses

Roses in a Basket

These deep red cookies turned out so pretty that I couldn’t bear to eat them. I especially liked the contrasting outlines in the lighter shades of dark pink and yellow-green. I think they’re perfect as a take-home gift for a bridal shower or wedding reception.

All the cookies shown in this post and this other post are available for purchase, inclusive of packaging as shown with the rose cookies above. Each cookie is about 3″ - 4″ large. Pricing is dependent on complexity of design.
