How to Decorate Cookies for a Wedding Shower

Make these romantic treats that can also serve as favors at your next wedding shower.


  • Step 1: Roll out dough Roll out the sugar cookie dough and cut out each cookie with the heart-shaped cookie cutter. Bake the cookies as directed and let cool completely.
  • Step 2: Color icing Divide out three-quarters of the Royal Icing and add food coloring to match the wedding colors.
  • Step 3: Frost cookies Frost all the cookies with the colored Royal Icing using the spatula or a butter knife and let them dry completely.
  • TIP: For best results, dry six hours or overnight.
  • Step 4: Decorate Fill the pastry bag with the white icing and use a fine tip to create a border around the edges of the cookie. Draw the names of the bride and groom or monogram in the center.
  • TIP: After the icing has dried, dip a small paintbrush in edible gold glitter to highlight the initials.
  • Step 5: Let dry Let the icing dry completely and arrange the cookies on a multi-tiered cake stand. The display makes a great rehearsal for the wedding cake.
  • FACT: In Roman times, a groom would break a loaf of wheat or barley over the head of his bride to bring luck and prosperity.
