That is what it was called when my friend gave it to me, but I think they are secretly just sugar cookies. But they were delicious! I didn't want to be stuck with all of the cookies, so we brought them around to our friends and neighbors to enjoy!

How to Make Wedding Cake Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. COOKIES:
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  4. In a seperate, larger, bowl, combine butter and sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well in between.
  6. Transfer half of dough onto a well-floured surface. Roll one half of dough untill about 1/4 inch thick (I don't expect you to break out the ruler, don't worry). Store other half in fridge.
  7. Using cookie cutters, cut dough into shapes (or wedding cakes) and put on other cookie sheet. The recipe my friend gave me didn't say to grease the sheet, so I didn't, but some of the cookies stuck. I got them up easily ehough with a knife though, so it is up to you.
  8. Repeat step 7 with other half of dough.
  9. Bake 11-13 minutes. I baked them 9, and the ones on the dark pan were slightly burnt, but nothing to cry about. I suggest you put it on for short intervals, and check them in between.
  10. ICING:
  11. Put confectioners sugar and milk into a bowl, and mix. These instructions are very vague because amounts depend on how many cookies you make.
  12. To make them more fun, put a little icing into small bowls and make funky colors. We (me and my decorating team, A.K.A the kids + friends) ended up with orange, purple, green, light/pinkish red, green, and a pretty blue/green color.
  13. ENJOY YOUR DELICIOUS SUGAR COOKIES IN DISGUISE!!!
