Now THESE were fabulous cookies! Fabulous cookies for a fabulous bachelorette party, of course.
These cookies were made for a big family party, so we made about 100 of them so there would be plenty to go around, especially because they’re pretty tiny.
I love the sparkle from the edible glitter, even though it makes a big mess and sticks to you like glue. I’ll probably be finding it all over my face for the next week!
They were a big hit, but I made a few too many and have a ton of leftovers.
These pretty silver dragees (the little silver sugar balls) can’t be found in California, so I bring them with me from Boston.
They were a bit rushed so some aren’t as perfect as I would have liked, but I’m still really happy with how these came out and no one but me cares about the tiny details anyways.
Most importantly, they were delicious!
I tie my pastry bags with twist ties so I can put them down and not worry about them exploding and making a big mess.
There was a little bit of bleeding because of the intense black and because they sat for a few days, but I love how they came out.
The glitter gets everywhere, but it’s worth it.
How can you resist?
Oh yeah. And I made 100 of them.
The cowboy hats were so much fun because I got to make each one a bit different and I love the sparkly gold detailing.
The cowboy boots, however, were quite a bit trickier and took FOREVER. Notice the gold spur and the clunky heel?
But they’re cute, so it was all worth it.
The Ark of the Covenant cake! With red velvet insides and creamy vanilla frosting, this cake was very, very rich. I decorated it with chocolate jewels covered in luster dust and edible glitter.
The panels on the side are hand piped and made of white chocolate covered in luster dust. The little pears are edible white sugar pearls that I rolled in gold luster dust. While finishing this cake while I was sick at 1 am, I dropped the entire 8 ounce bottle of pearls on the floor. A month later, I’m still finding them EVERYWHERE!
My frind made the beautiful topper using foam board, spray paint, and a sharpie.
Cutting the cake.
