Tiny Cookie Cakes!

Posted by jenmeeko at 1:09 PM
I was asked to make cookie wedding favors for a friend's recent garden-party themed wedding, and when I saw this idea on Martha Stewart's website I just couldn't resist giving it a try. Tiny wedding cakes made of stacked sugar cookies!


Each stack is made of two 2.5" rounds, two 2" rounds, and two 1" rounds held together with a soft royal icing. Each "cake" was adorned with handmade gumpaste flowers in the wedding colors (took a period of weeks to make!) which were attached with royal icing. Each "cake" was placed on a tiny 4" silver cake circle and 4" white doilies and then stuffed in a cello bag and tied up with sheer black ribbon and a matching tag. I made 130 in all, and with the help of some good friends I pulled off getting each one bagged and tagged in time for the wedding. They definitely took over my kitchen but looked cute at the wedding!
