Here are the final (aka non practice) wedding shower sugar cookies. I think they came out OK, i still feel weird about charging someone for these….

Hi Ski!  These are wonderful- beautiful, tiny details, just lovely.  I would happily pay for them. 

What are the elements?  Are they fondant or frosting?

They are fondant covered and then piped with a icing recipe I got online. It pipes really easy, dries shiny, and gets hard enough to stack the cookies, but soft enough to bite into!

They Look Wonderful! 

I take it the wedding colors are pink and white?  I was married in pink and white!

They’re worth the money, that’s work!

I charged her $20 because a) I didnt discuss price first, and b) shes my neighbor.

Next time for 35 cookies and 4 hours work I would probably charge at least $40. I priced some out at a local store- they sold 7 cookies (sugar cookies, decorated) for $10!!  AND they didn’t even LOOK GOOD!!!

Very nice cookies! They look so professional—so don’t worry about charging! You should check out the prices of cookies on high-end websites such as Dean & DeLuca and Williams-Sonoma. One look at their prices will remind you that you’re giving your friend a terrific price break!

$20 for 35 cookies???  Honey, you can get more than that.  Do some research online, you’ll see!  Excellent job on the cookies!  Did you use a piping bag, or squeeze bottles?  Did you use the Aunt Annie’s frosting recipe?  Really beautiful job!  Btw, my wedding colors were pink and white too smile.

the only reason i charged her so cheap was becuase i didnt discuss price with her beforehand….she tried to give me more, I didn’t accept. I will charge more next time.  I used piping bags, and I used the ‘painting cookies’ frosting recipe that I found online. It pipes really nice, (and frosts nice too) turns shiny and smooth when its dried and hardens up enough but still stays soft (yeah weird).  What is Aunt Annie’s recipe??
