My sweet first born daughter got married in September.
When making these bride and groom heart cookies for her and her new husband,
I wanted to emulate her bridal gown as much as possible.
Depending on the design you're going for......will determine how to decorate the bride cookies.
I chose to make some horizontal "pleats" and then add a fancy filigree with sanding sugar.
Outline and flood the cookie with white (or ivory) 10-second glaze.
Be sure to leave a "cleavage" on the heart.
To get the pleated look, allow the cookies to dry for an hour or two and
add lines with a cake tester.
For the sparkly filigree, pipe white icing in a scroll-y fashion,
Shake off the excess.
(The cool little sanding tray is from here.)
Very simple.....and yet elegant in it's own right.
