Canteloupe? Um. They did!

They quietly became Mr. and Mrs. and held a small reception of immediate family and closest friends afterward.  Since her business is running a gym, their cookies had a few “gym dandy” word puns… Who could resist “Oh My Quad, they’re Married” or “And they Lifted happily ever after”????

Great Gatsby

These Gatsby wedding favors were a cinch to create, thanks to fabulous stencils from Melanie at  Killer Zebras! Black and gold were the colors of the day. Gatby 2.jpg

Rokem gold mixed with water was painted at a diagonal directly on to the cookie.  Then the white and black royal icings were piped on and left to dry.

I covered the white icing with a Stenci-Blocker from Stencibelle and airbrushed Amerimist Gold sheen using a KZ stencil.

Happily Ever After

Lindsey and Chance are having their Cinderella ending (actually a beginning…). They wanted to extend their “happily ever after” wedding theme to the rehearsal dinner and welcome bags.

Glass slipper place cards were requested for the rehearsal dinner.

As well as Clock Towers and Carriages.

The out of town guests received Colorado-themed welcome boxes that included individualized glass slippers, carriages with the Colorado flag, and a story book cookie showcasing our Colorado mountains.

Swole Mates

Oh no I didn’t.  Yes WHEY, I did! This order was for a newly married couple who met at the gym and were both into power lifting. The client gave me free rein with design and so I LUNGED into the puns.  Never been so dead (lift) serious in my life.

Tori and Byron’s Wedding

Tori’s gown was structured and classic with just a touch of bling.  Perfectly and incredibly appropriate. So, true to Tori and Byron, the wedding/reception was equally classy, with all of the fabulous (and I do mean fabulous) details taken care of. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!! The food was as plentiful as it was incredible and the dancing nonstop! I was pretty much blown away by the whole day/event. The photographer was Pat Robinson of Philly; can’t say enough positives about his work!

Our girls. The youngest, the maid of honor, and Tori, the BRIDE!!!

MMB cookie favors were served as parting gifts.  A play on the Philly (“knot”) pretzel.

The groom and bride each got a cookie box of their own.

Bookmarked

Carrie and Elizabeth are true book enthusiasts and for their wedding they wanted to create a favor that had that “snuggle.up.with.a.cup.of.joe.and.a.good.read” vibe.  The couple had already found some mugs they liked so I wanted to create cookies that would fit into the cup.  I thought some nice bookmarks would be clever and asked them to pick a few of their favorite books. I also included one book shaped cookie because I just couldn’t pass up the ‘chapter/page turner’ word play…  Here’s the result:bookmarks

The whole kit-and-kaboodle before they were heat sealed into their bags.

All You Need is Love

The City of Brotherly Love’s (Philadelphia’s) perhaps best-known landmark is LOVE itself — the Robert Indiana sculpture is in John F. Kennedy Plaza, not far from City Hall.  As an odd side bar, LOVE was installed in 1976 but briefly snatched away in 1978; popular demand brought it back to where it stands today.

Since the wedding was in Philly (even though ordered and picked up in Buffalo), all was right in the karma world.
