Peacock Martinis

Last week I got to make cookie favors for the bridal shower of my husband’s coworker. The bridal shower was cocktail themed and the wedding colors are teal green and bright purple. (With peacock feathers!) I was so excited to make these.

I chose martinis because nothing screams “cocktail party” like a martini. Here is what we came up with:

First I outlined just the glass and background, then I squeezed a bit of uncolored icing (so that it would dry somewhat clear) into the rim of the glass.

While that dried, I filled in the background. I think the color turned out a little lighter than the wedding color, but I got it as close as I could.

Then I filled the glass with the cocktail…

Lastly I re-oulined the glass and piped on a stem and base.

Tied them up with a ribbon and they were good to go!

Too bad they’re not real martinis, I bet they would taste delicous!!

Here are some pictures from the party these were for!
