Thanks !!! icon_biggrin.gif

This example of a lily was done by FavorAffair.com and it looks as though they used a similar cutter, but with slightly pointier petals. (You could pinch the cutter into sharper points when you have yours though, easy enough.)

I'd suggest using hot pink lustre dust on a dry cookie iced in white to achieve the very unique Stargazer lily colouring....

Cograts on the order! I too am trying to make a cookie favor for a bridal shower. I purchased a copper lily cutter from Karen's Cookies. Good service, got within a few days. It is a flat six petaled flower. So I think the success will be in the coloring. I tested last week, but the coloring was not good. Am going to test again this weekend. The bride's request is an asiatic lily. So I'm looking at pink shades.
I had a hard time finding any pictures of completed cookies. I do better seeing an example.
Do a search in the cookie gallery on "lily" and there are a few pictures of lily bouquets.

sorry for the double post!
I practiced this weekend using the Karen's Cookies lily cookie cutter. It is a big cookie, therefore I was only able to get 16 cookies out of one batch of NFSC. I rolled the dough 3/16" thick.
At the rate of getting 16 cookies per batch of NFSC, you'd need to make 32 batches! Quite the undertaking unless you can find a smaller cutter.
Keep me posted. I'm only looking at doing 75-100 for the shower, but still it will take some organization.

I would just find a photo you like online and then turn it into a flat cookie (make your own cutter using the article here on CC) then you could really determine how big/small the cookie was going to be!
