The Tale of 3 Princess Cookies

My favorite Newlyweds with their Princess Bride and Knight Wedding Cake Topper Cookies

My favorite Newlyweds with their Princess Bride and Knight Wedding Cake Topper Cookies

Back in October I designed 2 cookie cutters based on the “Fairytale” theme of the wedding I was designing for my brother-in-law and his lovely bride-to-be (blog on that coming soon). People cookies are kind of my specialty and they requested storybook characters to fit their theme. We were all really happy with the way the Princess Bride and Knight cookie cake toppers turned out. (See the whole cookie set here) Since her dress is so fabulous, I have lots of ideas on how to decorate this princess…

For the final finishing touch, add the hair definition lines. For Princess Valentine, make the lines slightly wavy. We used straight lines on Princess Snowflake.
