but the cookies are not the numbers on the face of the clock

 

just cookies

 

hmm

 

i'd make them the same font as the clock face

 

i'd prolly just use oval cookies and use a rolled buttercream letter shape

 

so it stand out with the cookie as just the background

 

unless you wanna make the number cutters

 

or you can buy number cutters too of course (duh, kate ;)

 

doing a search on amazon will give you a nice selection of styles

you could texture them with any of those dozens of designs you can get

 

then you could dust the raised part of the pattern

 

or over pipe the raised part of the pattern

 

you could pipe flowers or stripes on there

 

you could lay a stencil or a piece of lace on top and spray it with a different color

 

(test with the lace--some works some doesn't)

 

you could make stitches on the sides like whip stitching the rolled buttercream to the cookie

 

you could polka dot them

Ok sounds great! So, now, the wedding shower colors are navy blue and lime green colors, so how can I incorporate those colors into my 3D shaped clock cake to make it look elegant? I can't find an idea to make it look nice and not tacky!! Please help asap! BTW: there will be 2 red hearts in middle of clock somewhere, that they want..too.

 

Thanks so much!
