sugar cookie cakes {sweet favors}

This favor idea might just be one of the cutest ideas I've seen in a while. You could personalize these in so many ways - a sticker with the couple's initials and date, or even an insert that fits directly behind the cookie cake with a poem or a picture...so many ideas.

Hello from a lurker that had to comment about these adorable cake/cookies! (BTW, love the blog!)

A friend and I made these for a bridal shower a year or two ago and, suffice to say, were disappointed in the final outcome. Our inner Martha Stewarts never emerged completely, at least not enough to get the cookies to be the exact same height so the stacks looked as adorably perfect as they do in the photo. Also, icing the individual cookies as perfectly was nearly impossible, despite trying every cookie frosting trick in the book.

All this to say, I'd suggest a trial run through before committing. If you are able to make them as adorable as the photo, then I tip my hat to your mad skillz, and ask, "can I hire you to make them for me next time?" ;-)

kelly - thanks for the head's up! I actually attempted to make Martha's sugar cookies one year as holiday gifts, you know the one's all decorated with the most perfect icing - well, they looked like a pre-school project when I was finished. All gloppy and the frosting didn't look even and smooth like hers. I think the only way I could get them as perfect as here is to hire a food stylist when I'm baking!
