A sugar cookie is probably one of the most basic cookies out there. Wikipedia informs us that “They are commonly decorated with frosting, sprinkles, or a combination of both.” Well, once you see what Larry Calvert of Toute Sweets does with frosting and sprinkles and a basic sugar cookie, you won’t believe your eyes.
Larry had me the minute I learned how he followed his heart, away from the corporate world, straight into his passion for baking and decorating cookies. It’s exciting to meet people like Larry because of their boundless creativity.
For me, creativity means taking ordinary ingredients and combining them into something new and unexpected. Like the cookie cake. You have cake and you have cookies – each a pretty ordinary ingredient. Larry decided to decorate a white stacked cake with decorative sugar cookies and the result is fun and fresh. It’s a great way to reflect your playful side – it is not your typical cake!
So, if a cookie-decorated cake is a bit much for you, just check out the artistry in Larry’s cookies. Whether you are planning a wedding, a bachelorette/bachelor party or Mitzvah celebration for your child, Toute Sweets cookies add whimsy and fun. They make wonderful personalized party favors, and I love the idea of using cookies as escort cards.
Larry has so many ideas for reinventing the sugar cookie to personalize it and add extra special flair to any celebration. Larry told me that he was creating something special for the Moments team and we were simply dazzled to see our logo perfectly shaped atop a round cookie. The best part – the cookies are delicious! Even though the ingredients are simple, the minute you bite into the cookie, you know that the best ingredients have been used – so moist and buttery! Only one thing was missing….a tall glass of milk!
Wedding planning tip: personalized cookies make wonderful party favors. Also, great for midnight snack, complete with regular and chocolate milk shooters.
