I have free reign over how I want to do the cookies except they are to be in the bridal colors: Black, pink & white.

I'm trying to figure out a way to tie them in together....any suggestions? I've looked at a lot of cookies, but there are a lot of all white or some with white and pink, but trying to figure how to bring the black in on the cookie...

Is there a specific shape cookie you are going for?

Some suggestions for adding black to wedding cookies:

- make the heart shaped cookies for the bridal dress (maybe add a black bow) and make the groom's tux in black with pink corsage
- wedding cake cookie with black / pink plunger flowers for the swags
- bridal dress cookie with a black bow at the waist and pink pearls
- etc...

I think it would like nice if the main color is white and use the pink and black as accents (pink and black work nicely together).

I like the idea of a cake shaped cookie.. white "icing", black bibbon at the base of each "tier", and pink flowers for accents. You could do pink icing, white ribbon and black flowers too. Or you could do a round or square cookie outline it in black.. fill with pink and do a monogram in white. Or outline in pink fill with white and monogram with black.. It depends on what you are going for.

I like the cake shaped cookie idea as well.

Iced white...

but...

while the white is still wet, add a few spots of black then swirl through them with a pin or toothpick.


finish with a pink band at the base of each "tier" or a black band at the base of each tier and an itty bitty pink flower placed off-center

check out antonia's gallery-she is a huge inspiration-i like the idea of the monogram-simple shape and you can accent with alternating pink, black and white bows or flowers to dress it up...the possibilities are endless can't wait to see the pics!

Hi,
What about outlining and piping the design all in black. Then after that is dry, use a smaller round tip to repipe over the black in white, still showing the black as the background. Use the pink as an accent color to over pipe parts of the design as well.

For example: A black stripe would have a smaller white stripe on top of it. Then black swiss dots could have smaller pink swiss dots on top of them, and so on.

Or reverse it with an all white outline with the black swiss dots over the white and so on.

Have fun. It will be interesting to see what everyone suggests. There are so many talented people on CC.

I like this idea as well....for the daisy plungers how small do they come? Would they be small enough to put on the cake?

you could always do simple wedding dresses like i do. Then accent the dresses or bows when packaging. see a few of my cookies

You can get forget-me-not plungers that are as small as 3/16 of an inch wide.. Kemper cutters usually marketed for polymer clay, but you can use them fine with GP or fondant. My local cake store has a few in their cutter section.
