Hi Ladies~

I am a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding and we are throwing the bride a party in a month or two. The theme of the party is "Pantry Party" or "Kitchen Theme."

We will be sending out invitation soon, and included in the invitation will be a recipe card for the guest to fill out with their favorite recipe. We will collect all these recipes and give to the bride at the end of the party. The guest are suggested to bring kitchen themed gifts (i.e. mixing bowls, stand mixer, oven mitts, baking dishes, etc).

We would like to send the guests off with some cute cookies as a party favor but I am stumped on what shape to make! I was thinking it would be so cute to send them off with a cookie shaped like a stand mixer/oven mitt (or something of that nature) with a recipe attached for the cookie.

I have been searching cookie cutter sites and have yet to find any cutters I really like. I guess I could always settle on a fork/spoon set, but all I can find are spoon cutters.

Any ideas from you lovely ladies?

Thanks!

you could always make an apron cookie. You can take a large flower cookie cutter then cut a small semi circle out of the top and make two small toothpick holes on either side to thread a tiny piece of ribbon through once they are baked and cooled.

It's the same idea of making a baby bib, but if you pipe on pockets you can transform it into an apron.

This site has a knife fork and spoon, salt shaker, chefs hat, coffee/tea mug. I don't know how soon you need them, but if you can't order them maybe you could do templates. Good luck!

Heidi.

You're welcome! I'm usually the one asking the questions so I'm glad to be able to finally help! I also thought of doing a soup can, like Campbells, but I don't know how good you are at freehand. I suck so I probably wouldn't be able to do it. Good luck!

A mitten cutter could do an oven mitt- cut off the little "cuff tabs" if you like.

How about a teapot and cup and saucer. I've seen those done up really cute.

You can always make your own templates from cardstock, parchment paper, or freezer paper. The dough will cut best if it's been in the freezer at least 20 min when cutting free hand. And that way you can cut what you want. Just find a pic & make it the size you want, print, trace & cut.

Here are a couple from Antonia that i've always liked.

you could use a rectangle cutter or just a pizza cutter
