These are the brides…………………….and these are the grooms!

Aren’t they cute?  This is what I’ve been doing this weekend- making 56 pairs of this happy couple for a dear friend’s son’s wedding.

I put on my baker’s hat and cut out and baked 112 gingerbread boys and girls-

and then I decorated them with three different chocolates.

The brides got all white chocolate- the grooms dark and milk chocolate-

and  then I gussied them all up in bows and ribbons.

Actually – two bakery boxes.

Being a baker around holidays means that you don’t have a lot of free time.

Tomorrow I’m making dozens of turkey dinner rolls for the Bake Shop.

You can find directions and a recipe for making the rolls here.

  1. Heidi, they are delightful! I must confess, though, that if I were baking cookies for a wedding, I’d be making half again as many as I needed in case of breakage or frosting fails! Your confidence tells me a lot about your skill!

  2. I have been making cookies for large orders for many years- and I do usually make extra cookies- but only about 3 extra just in case one gets dropped .
    So now I have 3 extra cookies left over.

  3. Need someone to make bride and groom gingerbread cookies for my daughter’s wedding. She is giving to-go-mugs and thought the cookies would be a great finishing touch. However, cost became a factor. Can you help us? Thanks for your time. Your cookies look adorable. I wish I had the talent. The wedding is Dec. 18, 2009.

  4. Hi Annajean!
    I can see where the cost could be prohibitive- there is a lot of work in cut outs when they are decorated in this manner. How many people are you considering giving cookies to?
    I generally charge $1.50 to $2.00 dollars each- plus shipping and handling.
    You could try to decorate the Pepperidge Farm gingerbread man cookies with piped chocolate and ribbons, but no matter how you do it , you are running out of time.
