Shamrock Wedding Favors

Shamrock wedding favors - why not shamrock sugar cookies for your Irish themed wedding? These were hand decorated with royal icing in the colors of the famous Irish flag: green, white and orange. At the time of this writing they were available - four dozen mini shamrock cookies at $16 for the set. This seller has since given up on baking these beautiful cookies. No matter. I can make them for a fraction of that price. Prepare the cut out cookie dough and put it in my freezer up to three months in advance. Pick up a tin plated shamrock cookie cutter (on Amazon) for a little over five bucks. Mix up a batch of royal icing with Wilton's Meringue Powder, a pound of confectioners' sugar and a little bit of warm water. Wrap individually in clear cellophane bags or show off these charming Irish themed favors on decorative plates and trays.
