Bachelorette Cookies

filed under: Miscellaneous on May 27, 2010

*For more Facebook/Twitter Cookies see this post I did!

The theme for these cookies was pink, black, fun, and wedding stuff. The couples names are Beth and Scott and they are getting married on June 26th of this year. I’m so excited for them! Love weddings.

But, before all the serious business of that wedding happens, a fun and traditional little party is going to transpire.

Thats right, the bachelorette party.

I have to admit, I was pretty nervous for this order. See, I dont make… um… naughty stuff… so I thought I might be limited.

But I think I found something the bride will like.

For some reason this one just makes me *sigh* and ponder the joy of romance and love. ๐Ÿ™‚

And then.

I did something sorta different.

I made a cookie that was not really what the client asked for.

Its not her colors.

Its not in the bachelorette theme as much as it should be…

I really hope she doesnt mind.

I just got the idea and went with it.

I’m so nervous!! I really hope they like it!

And I’m so excited to try this for other themes… birthdays, anniversaries, job promotions, new babies… really, anything!

Well. Maybe not funerals. Or audits. Or when your favorite dancer ever should have won Dancing with the Stars but instead came in second place.

Just sayin.

Maybe I can even dare to change up the colors a bit… we’ll see!

I used my Amazing Sugar Cookies recipe and my favorite icing recipe. Just click the links and follow the instructions to make your own beautiful cookies! I dare ya!~

*********

A couple of you may have noticed that my pictures now say ‘i am baker’ right on them. Although I am flattered beyond belief, I have been finding out the many folks are taking my images and text without permission and posting it on their sites and blogs.

So! I have added the little logo to the bottom. I might change it up a bit… put the full website address, I dont know. I will have to play around! I know it can get annoying, so thank you for understanding! I will try to make it as inconspicuous as possible.

You can see more of these over at Project Weddings!

  • Alex Erynn says:

    The facebook cookies are fantastic. How do you come up with this stuff?

  • jackiefo says:

    Don’t worry at all! She will love them. They are both great. Also, I think it’s great that you have put your name in the bottom of your pictures. People shouldn’t post pics to their blog w/o giving credit. You go girl ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction says:

    Those cookies are LOVEly… Every single one! I especially love the Facebook cookies. Adorable!
    I am with you on adding your name/site/etc to your photos… It’s a shame that it has to be done… but it has to be done!

  • Elizabeth says:

    So cute! I’m sure she will love them! The fb idea is soo cool! You’re so creative!
    I tried your Mother’s Day cookie jar idea (a little late..) this past week with both of your recipes (cookie & icing) and they were a hit! Thanks Amanda!

  • Diane {createdbydiane.blogspot.com} says:

    Love them! What fun facebook cookies too ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure she will love them too!

  • Kalle says:

    The first cookies are awesome. The ones with the just the word love are my favorite. But your Facebook idea is AWESOME! I LOVE those ones.

  • Mindy says:

    sooooooo cute!!! just fyi if someone wants to really use your picture they still can crop out your logo. i would put something across it just to protect yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Yenswky says:

    OMG this is total love. I was wondering what to do for my friends hen night since strippers and drinking were off the table. These will be such cute favours. Thanks for the amazing timeliness

  • Courtney says:

    I love them!! Your handwriting is so perfect, also love the facebook cookies ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jana says:

    Uh oh. so is it okay if I did copy and paste it and told them where it came from? (the i am baker is too light, IMO, I didn’t even notice that the first time around and I think it SHOULD have the whole website!) My hubby’s cousin is named Beth and is getting married AND is my friend on FB so I had to show her (though it would’ve been even AWESOMER if your Beth was marrying someone named Andrew!).
    And PS. So do you hire out in general? If so, do you have rates? I am WAY past trying to immulate you, so I’d rather put some $ in your pocket when I have a need!!
    Love you girl!

  • Amanda Rettke says:

    You are so sweet Jana! I am pretty busy through August… but if you need something in Sept. or later, just drop me an email! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Blessings!

    Oh man, I consider FB the root of all evil, but those cookies are so *cute*!
    Re: your watermark, I really do think you ought to put your full web address on there. I hate it when I see a photo I want to know more about, but it wasn’t properly credited. Now, *I* know how to google and therefore could find you, but the number of people I know who, when I tell them to google something, look at me like I just told them to go find me a snipe… well, I don’t think it can hurt. It’s definitely unobtrusive. In fact, as long as it’s not interfering with the photo I think I’d change the white text photos to a darker color like you have in the others, to make it a bit more obvious. It’s *your* hard work going into these – *you* deserve the credit, the traffic, and hopefully, the resulting business!

  • Mandi says:

    I love the detailing on these – the “cake toppers” are adorable and unexpected! And of course, how could you think the FB cookies wouldn’t be a hit – they’re ADORABLE and creative!!!!! Love it.

  • Heather says:

    Amanda!! This is so wonderful! My best friend just got engaged and I have been trying to think of different ideas as I love to bake and decorate cookies!! I know there will be some fun parties ahead! I had some ideas for cookies, but your bachelorette cookies are too cute! I just love your blog!

  • grace says:

    photo-thievery = unacceptable!
    on a brighter note, these cookies are cute and clever. the facebook craze has now fully arrived. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Carrie says:

    Hi Amanda–
    So I just returned to Florida from my Bachlorette Party weekend in Wisconsin. I was so excited to get there and tear into the box of cookies that you shipped. Oh my gosh, they are EVEN CUTER in real life and I couldn’t stop looking at all of them! Thanks for leaving some of them a surprise…I love the love doves and the ones that said “Cute Girls Gone Wild”! ๐Ÿ™‚ You are adorable! The colors were PERFECT for the theme of the weekend…they looked so great against all of the other wonderful decorations. Beth and all of the guests thought the cookies were great, too, and not only did they look too good to eat, they tasted awesome! (We won’t talk about how many I ate…shhh! Calories don’t count anyways during party weekends, right?)
    Thanks again! I know you have a busy busy summer but I’m looking forward to working with you in the future!
    You are the BEST!!!
    Carrie

  • jenn says:

  • Geoff says:

    Great job!

  • Lexi says:

    What kind of tip did you use for the writing? And is there a tutorial on how to do writing on UniversityofCookie.com? I absolutely adore these and am determined to make some like it for a bridal shower I’m hosting soon!

  • Jessica says:

    i really really love the “beth loves scott loves beth” cookies!

  • Beth says:

    I absolutely LOVE these. My name is Beth and my fiancรฉ’s name is Scott and we are getting married on May 26th of this year. SO SO CUTE!!!

    • Amanda says:

      What a fun coincidence!

  • Jeannette says:

    I was just wondering once you flood the cookies with the pink color…when do you pipe the words? Once it’s dry? Is this done over a few days? Does it dry hard enough to be packaged in cellophane? Thanks in advance. Bridal shower in just under two weeks:)
