Showering the bride with love

Bridal shower cookies are one of my favorite things to make. They are so simple and elegant, and can easily be customized to match the wedding colors.

This weekend, I traveled to Philadelphia, PA, to celebrate my cousin's fiance's bridal shower and bachelorette party. I will also be making their wedding cake this summer, which is a HUGE honor (and I'm in the wedding, which will make for an interesting challenge!), so I wanted to prove my chops with cookies for the shower.
Navy and white to match the bride's colors
The secret here is to make your fondant/gum paste flowers ahead of time with a small extruder/punch - then the piping can be really simple for a clean and elegant look. I had a little bit of navy-on-white bleed from the airline travel (cookies travel pretty well, but it was hot and dark colors on light colors is always a risk), but all in all, I think they turned out beautifully!
