L.A. Candy Cookies

filed under: Miscellaneous on May 19, 2010

These cookies are a bit different then what I am used to making. Not only is the theme new, but I am sending them off to LA where the famous people are.

I feel hip just saying LA.

I'm so excited! And lame.

Do you know who Lauren Conrad is? Shes a gorgeous Laguna Beach girl who was on The Hills but now has her own clothing line and is a New York Times best selling author.

I'm sorry its so hard to see some of them.. I used a really pale pink and it just doesnt show up. 🙁

And doing white on white isnt the best for photography either.

(still hard to distinguish) This was one of my favs. I love mixing fonts. Can you even see that white LAUREN on there?? No? Well. You can on the cookie. I promise.

Anywho… I have no idea if these are ever going to been seen (or eaten!) by the actual Lauren Conrad, but I can sure pretend!

Did I mention I'm a fan?

Yeah. We have the same birthday. Except she is still in her twenties. And thin. And has great hair. But other then that its like we were separated at birth.

I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and my favorite icing recipe.

    Oh hey, the white and pink on white is cool!
    K for reals, I meant to contact you about doing my son’s bday cake (or cookies?) for his birthday last week but my MIL works with a lady who’s done our cakes before and she (my MIL) wanted to get the cake for him from her this time, so I let her. Anyway – my hubs’ bday is June 2nd and I’d love for you to do cookies for him! How much time do you need before the event? Cause I have NO idea what I want the cookies to look like 😛

  • meaghan (chic cookies) says:

    These are great! She’ll love ’em (when I was working at the store, I got an order to LA for Nora Ephron and I was over the moon, you know, Nora Ephron? When Harry Met Sally? Oh my goodness, I’m so old and totally unhip.)

  • Jill says:

    Amanda, I am in awe. I try to write on my cookies, and just seem to have so little control…. I use a standard royal icing rather than your version – and I think I have used a #2 tip for writing (I use a #3 for my outlines/dams)…. any smaller and the icing just doesn’t want to flow, and even with #2 it seems tough. I wonder if I’m not thinning it enough? I use the same icing I would use with a #3 to do an outline.
    I wish I could see some of the pale pink & white on white, but what I can see is just beautiful.

  • Kalle says:

    beautiful cookies, I’m sure LC will love them. I’m a huge fan of hers too! I cried a little when she left the Hills but then her clothes came out and I couldn’t blame her.

  • tia @ buttercreambarbie says:

    those are beautiful! what devotion to LC you must have.
