Heart Cookie Bouquet
I love combining a variety of techniques in a single cookie bouquet. Many different looks can give the luxury cookie variety with of a limited color palette, which is useful since many colors can take a long time to mix. These cookies were made as a wedding gift for my dear neighbors, two widowed seniors that recently got married. Don’t worry, I covered up the white foam you can see in the picture before I delivered!
Cookie Design Variety
These are the featured cookies, but not all the cookies in the bouquet were main attractions.
Bread & Butter cookies
We have some “bread and butter” cookies in this bouquet. These are cookies that are pretty basic and fast, and can be a good simple filler against some more complicated designs. In this bouquet, this simple beige flower and this two-tone petal flower would be my bread & butters. They each just took a couple minutes to make. I used to feel back about making b&b’s, until I saw people actually eating my cookies, and they tend to be the first ones to go!
Some of the cookies also turned out not quite as…er…attractive as the others. I’ve made quite a few butterfly cookies, so I thought I could just “wing” these ones (pun intended). Not so much. Luckily, when you put them up next to the other cookies, they just kind of become a part of the background.
Bouquet-ing the Cookies
Sometimes cookie bouquets can be very tedious work for limited reward. They do look nice in a bouquet, but cookie bouquet arrangements can be fragile and precarious. Sometimes I skip the bucket and foam and just do a paper-wrapped bouquet, like with these Tulip Cookie Bouquets.
Happy baking, friends!
