Calendar Cookies

Calendar cookies

I came across this idea for Calendar Cookies and I thought they were just fabulous!  They’d be perfect as favours for a wedding, or bridal shower – what a great way to remind people of the special date.  Or if you are feeling particularly brave, perhaps as favours for a baby shower.  You never know, the baby might surprise everyone and pop out right on time!

Cameo Cookies

As you know I love customising things.  And what can be more personalised than these cameo cookies?  I love that they would be essentially unique to you (or whomever you ordered them for) as it’d be your face on it!  Wouldn’t these be perfect as birthday party or wedding favours?

OR as a very cool item for a baby shower, we could do the cameo using an ultrasound image of the baby’s face.  I was always staring at the ultrasound pics when I was pregnant, trying to make out from that fuzzy image what my baby might look like.  This would be a perfect way to “show” your unborn baby to your guests!  We could also make the cameo as a centrepiece cake for the event.

Tea Bag Cookies

I’m loving these tea bag cookies, such a clever idea and tasty too with the chocolate dipped base.  I’m particularly taken by their slightly browned edges, the sepia tones add a certain vintage quality to them!  Wouldn’t they be perfect for an afternoon tea party or perhaps a tea-party themed bridal or baby shower?  Just gorgeous.

I would perhaps make the cookies with an infusion of Earl Grey or Matcha (Japanese green tea powder) to add a bit of extra tea flavour.  And the tags or the cookies can be customised with a name if they were to act as favours for an event.
