I few weeks ago I got the opportunity to make some monogrammed cookies for a wedding. Simple, elegant, white on white.
Since I do all my piping by hand, I had to be extra careful with these to make sure the monograms were centered and all the same.
I practiced on one cookie over and over (wiping off in between) until I had my spacing right. Then I put little dots where all the key parts of the center W needed to go…
Then piped on the W, followed by the outer letters.
The cookies were going to sit next to the cake, so no individual wrapping was needed. This is fine, except I was worried about them getting smashed too much before wedding time. Then I was told they had to travel hundreds of miles away… Eek! Last minute I found these perfect boxes and some bubble wrap and packaged them all up safely. Worked out perfectly!

I am so in love with these pink gems!
The designs were sent to me by the mama, she found them online. I just mimicked them with my own style of frosting/icing. And they turned out better than I expected!
The cake on the cake stand is identical to the cake ordered for the party.

Does everyone know my friend Nate? His blog Nate Makes Cookies is not only hilarious, but it’s a fun creative take on food blogging. He makes only Martha Stewart Cookie Recipes and writes about his experience, (sometimes) problems, and how everyone loves each recipe. It’s honestly one of my favorite blogs to read!
Annnnyways… Nate recently emailed me asking if I wanted to do a “foodie pen pal” thing and send each other local foods and some homemade cookies. Of course I was on board!!
I made these cookies for Nate:
(if you go see his site you’ll see why I did this design!)
I also had to throw in some California cookies because he is in Oregon. I got my inspiration for these from Andrea of Cupookie. I saw these California cookies she did and knew I had to make my own version!
If you look carefully, the dot on the first “i” is right about at Sacramento. 🙂
So glad you loved your cookies Nate!!

Okay bravo if you can follow along with this: the daughter of a coworker of a family friend was getting married, and wanted some cookie wedding favors.
Lots of baking…
Color = Purple. Dark purple is hard to make! It took me like 45 minutes to get it dark enough. It was worth it, it came out great!
I tied little tags onto each bag with the bride and groom’s names and the wedding date. Love that it’s 9/10/11!
I had a couple blank cookies leftover, so I did roses out of the purple buttercream to pair with the extra Monogram cookies. These are extra, so they are just something extra and special for the bride!
