Here are some vintage prom dress bridal shower cookies we created recently. We were asked to create some spring and early 1960s-inspired sugar cookies perfect for a vintage prom themed bridal shower and these lovely treats were the result.
The client wanted bright pastels and some fashion details included on each cookie along with three different designs to represent the two bridesmaids and the one bride. One of the first decisions was to make each cookie a different colour instead of creating the same base colour but with different detailing. Looking at the customer’s inspiration board on Pinterest we selected a fresh scheme of pale pinks, white, lilac and a faded Tiffany blue – perfect for spring and the early 1960s!
Quick sketches were made of each dress with ideas and notes on textures, colours, materials and design elements. For the bridal dress we added simple royal icing swiss dots, a pearl border to trim the bust and a lovely pink grosgrain ribbon bow. Each of the bridesmaids dresses featuring a pale base colour in flooded royal icing. We added tiny blossoms to the pink that were delicately thinned given a little dimension before being finished with a small sugar pearl inside each. The pale Tiffany blue cookie had simple brush embroidery style teardrops trimming the bust and hem of the dress before being finished with a grosgrain lilac ribbon bow!
