Better late than never right? I know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so I decided to make some cookies for the cause. Love the assortment ♥

I just got married October 13 2011. I made my own favors to match the color scheme of the flowers I had in my bouquet and centerpieces. Red, orange, purple, hot pink and deep green. The cookies were HUGE...about 6" tall. I flooded them with an ivory color and then did some flower designs with the brush embroidery technique cascading on one side. The centers of the flowers I added a little silver luster dust for some sparkle. They came out beautiful & everyone loved them. I will always remember these because they were my wedding favors AND...because they are the one cookie that literally took me the longest to decorate. haha...luckily it was for a special occasion ;)

I saw this cute image on an invitation and of course I thought....ooohhh that would be so cool if I made a cookie like that. Well these came out mighty cute I may say. I didnt want to ice the whole cookie black....since black icing tends to leave your mouth & teeth black haha. So I read on LilaLoa's blog that if you add some drops of black food coloring into your chocolate cookie dough you will get black cookies. No black teeth & no aftertaste. WOW this is brilliant!
