Sunflower Wedding Favors

Sunflower wedding favors - why not cookies you lovingly prepared weeks or months in advance? Freeze your pre-baked cookies (completely cooled) by placing them in single layers separated by sheets of waxed paper. Make sure your container is airtight. Here is an easy to follow tutorial of how to make sunflower cookies. After baking or thawing out your sunflower cookies, it will take you two days to complete - one for flooding (covering the entire cookie with a thin coat of royal icing), and the second day for piping the edges of the petals and the little green dots. No need to be intimated by royal icing. With Wilton's Meringue Powder (available on Amazon or at Walmart) you don't have to mess around with egg whites. Only three ingredients - confectioners' sugar, meringue and a little bit of warm water - for professional cookie decorating results.
