Bake some cookies for wedding or shower favors. Large, custom-decorated sugar cookies make lovely favors for wedding and showers. Fancy bakeries and mail order companies offer cookies that look like little works of art - and cost about as much. Save money and add a personal touch by doing it yourself. Baking the cookies ahead of time and freezing them, well wrapped in plastic, then in zipper-lock bags, will save last minute prep time, and for an impressive look without an exorbitant amount of effort, they can use chocolate transfer sheets, which are sheets of plastic that have been imprinted with a design made of colored cocoa powder.
Cookie cutter shapes that would be perfect for these cookies include Wedding Cake, Bell, Church, Dove and Butterfly. They are all available at www.annclark.com.
