What do you all think about this cookie design for a "sophisticated" look? Maybe a birthday or an anniversary? (Click on the image and it will get slightly bigger.)

I visited Papyrus (an amazing card store with high-end cards, stationary, wrapping paper, invitations, etc.) today and these colors seemed to be everywhere. Thanks for your help.

You could use that design and adapt the colors of any wedding. I love it! It's going into my fav's!

I'm working on one now for Mother's Day in pinks where I swapped out the initial for the word "Mom" and added a few little flowers. I will try to post it later.

I will hopefully be making some prototype cookies by next week. I'll post pics when they are done.

Thanks to all for your comments and suggestions--they are very much appreciated! icon_smile.gif

That is really nice. That can be more your "manly" style cookie for like a grooms dessert table at a wedding or something. Its not too fru-fru or anything. Very classic icon_smile.gif

I love it. Very elegant. My question for you is...how did you design it? I'd love to make my own monograms like that.

Thanks,
Kim

I'm not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking me how I get the lines straight in the design? This is just a "drawing" I did with MS Word. If you mean on the actual cookie, I plan to use fondant for the stripes, so getting them straight would mean first cutting them straight and then letting them dry a bit before I attach it to the cookie. I hope my answer helps you. icon_smile.gif

Kim--

I used MS Word to design the cookie. I used to have MS publisher and it was a lot easier, but it can be done in Word. You have to use the Drawing tool bar and play around with the different functions.

I think it would also look lovely if you did the background in RBC and that way you could stamp the monogram and even the little design underneath it- give it a little more dimension. Or how about stamp it in , and then paint it with some liquid dust? That would add a little sheen to the monogram...very pretty! You could also use some sugarveil or chocolate to create really fancy and uniform monograms! icon_smile.gif

Thank you - that is indeed what I meant. Duh! I should have known it was fondant.

Thanks for the great suggestions cakesonoccasion! I was actually going to use chocolate candy clay for the background. And I had thought about stamping the scroll/design and painting it. great minds think alike! thumbs_up.gif

By the way, I am not very familiar with Sugarveil--is it fun/easy/satisfying to use?

Here's what I came up with for Mother's Day (remember to click on the picture for a better view). It still needs a bit of tweaking (which will get done when I make the actual cookie.). And speaking of making cookies...I better get baking! Thanks again for everyone's suggestions and comments! icon_smile.gif
