First Communion Cake and Cookies
My daughter's First Communion went a week ago Saturday. Here she is, all decked out in her pretty white dress and veil:
I used the cookie cutters that I mentioned in this blog post to make these cookies. They turned out far better than I expected! I saved time by using Pillsbury sugar cookie dough mix instead of making the dough from scratch. I also used Pillsbury canned icing and Wilton's decorator frosting in a tube.
For her cake, I baked a small sheet cake and decorated it with an edible image I purchased on Ebay from Rebecca's Edible Cake Images. I also purchased some gum paste flowers from another Ebay vendor, Michele's Gifts for You. I put the gum paste flowers in the corner of the cake. I decorated the borders of the cake with Wilton frosting tubes. I am not a cake decorator but I received many compliments on the cake. The edible cake image and the gum paste flowers gave the cake a professional look.
