Paris, je t'aime

One of my very favorite things is when someone asks me to do a cookie design that I haven't done before. I absolutely love being out of my "creative comfort zone". I love to have a blank cookie in front of me and know in my head how I want it to look and transfer it onto my "canvas".

So it was with these cookies. I was given the theme Paris, and the colors black and pink. Knowing this was for an anniversary party, I wanted to incorporte as much "love" as I could :)

I've always thought about going to Paris, and about ten years ago I almost had the chance - but it was not to be. I was so close - living in Europe - but the day before things changed. One day... day I'll see the Eiffel Tower for real!

Everything was done freehand. I drew "chandelier" image, piped it onto wax paper, let it dry and then transferred it onto the cookies. I am learning to do writing better after lots of practice, but I would love for a KopyKake to be in my future...

Such a romantic city, or so I've been told.

I hope that the couple that I made these for have a wonderful anniversary, and that these cookies help them remember why they first fell in love.

Keep it sweet!
