    Make the Wedding Cake Cookies

  1. 1

    Prepare to make cookies just two days before the wedding to ensure that they stay fresh. Gather the necessary materials ahead of time. Purchase wedding-cake cookie cutters at a craft store or online wedding retailers.

  2. 2

    Whisk flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl until well blended. In a separate bowl, combine butter and sugar with a mixer until it has a fluffy texture. Add eggs and vanilla to this mixture, and stir until blended.

  3. 3

    Combine the flour mixture with the butter and sugar mixture, and combine until blended together. Dough will begin to form from this mixture.

  4. 4

    Place dough on a flat, flour-covered surface. Cut the dough in half and roll one-half of the dough out on waxed paper until it is about 1/3-inch thick. Set the other half of the dough in the refrigerator.

  5. 5

    Use the rolled-out dough and cut out shapes with wedding-cake cookie cutters. If a cookie cutter is not available, trace the shape of a three-tier cake onto a piece of cardboard and cut it out. Then, with the cardboard as a guide, use a pizza cutter to cut out the shape from the dough. Place cookie-dough cake shapes on a non-stick baking tray.

  6. 6

    Grab the dough from the refrigerator, and roll it out just like the first dough half. Cut out cookie shapes, and add to the first batch of cookies on a baking tray.

  7. 7

    Bake cookies in a preheated oven at 176 degrees C. Leave cookies in the oven for 12 minutes.

  8. 8

    Allow the wedding cake cookies to cool. Remove cookies from the baking tray with a spatula, and place them on waxed paper. Apply icing and decorations.

    Assemble the Wedding Favors

  1. 1

    Allow cookies to cool overnight before you assemble the favour bags. Set everything out in the order that you will need to put the favours together.

  2. 2

    Place the desired amount of cookies into each bag (either cellophane or favour bags).

  3. 3

    Tie each bag shut with a ribbon. Use ribbon that matches your wedding colours.

  4. 4

    Personalise the favours by printing tags with your guests' names on them. If printing the tags is not an option, purchase wedding favour tags to hand write each guest's name.

  5. 5

    Place the wedding favours on reception tables as centrepieces or as placeholders.

Tips and warnings

  • Use royal icing for a glossy finish.
  • Use intricate designs to make each cookie resemble a wedding cake.
