Mini Horseshoe Cookies shipped to Beverly Hills...

5.20.2010

...Michigan, that is!
I received a special request to make mini round cookies with little lavender and purple horseshoes as favors for a bridal shower. The lovely bride-to-be works for Camp Casey - a nonprofit horse camp for kids battling cancer. (Before you visit the website, grab some tissues). What a fantastic organization!!



There were 35 favors in all, so I ended up making 200 of these bad boys -- I always make extra, in case any drop, break, or I've somehow miscalculated. (I've learned this the hard way. I've had to whip up another entire batch of cookie dough, just to cut-out 1 or 2 cookies - ridiculous).

The horseshoes were done using one of my favorite techniques, royal icing runouts (as briefly described in this post).



The lavender ones were dusted with a touch of disco (edible glitter). Each favor included 5 cookies tied with matching purple or lavender ribbon. The tag on each said, "Molly & Nick, Lucky In Love." Awww!



Congratulations to the "Lucky" Couple!!

Kristen -
Molly LOVED the favors. She actually ran up to my table during the shower and declared them to be her favorite part of the whole shower.

Everyone was as excited to learn that the cookies TASTED as great as they looked.

Thanks for being so wonderful to work with!
