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.

Storybook Baby Shower

Since both parents are teachers, a literature/storybook theme was a perfect choice for the baby shower.  It is likely that there will be many open books in this baby boy’s future.  But, “In the Beginning,” this cookie will start the celebration of a new life!

The cookie itself was a brown sugar and spice version, care of cookie goddess Bridget Edwards at Bake at 350.  She and her recipes are AH.mazing!
