Yummy wedding dress cookie favours are really one of my favourite ideas for wedding bomboniere. Guests love a cookie and particularly one home-made and decorated with love and affection.
Our wedding dress cookie favours make a great bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or wedding favour for your guests and look spectacular as well as taste divine! No guests will leave these scruptious favours on their plates!To begin, you’ll need the 4 piece wedding cookie cutter set by Wilton at Pink Frosting. You’ll also need a steady hand, disposable decorating bags and some extra cookies to experiment on before you get the techniques perfect. Here is the Wilton how to adapted to help us Aussies:
