Recently, I met with a couple and the groom was a bonafide cookie connoisseur - he loved them and wanted them to be a big part of his groom's cake.
But how do you do that and still keep things classy? Enter Mama Wilson from Mama Wilson's Cookies. She made these delicious, deep dish cookies to act as tier separators between each cake tier.
Initially I was just a little nervous about this collaboration. I know my cake and my icing. I know how it reacts when it's carved, it's like my baby. I made it and I know it's strengths and it's weaknesses.. But I'm so glad I agreed to do it and I was very pleased with the outcome. I did use a small cake board beneath each cookie just in case it needed some extra support. And this cake fit in just fine at the venue, Mason's Farm a River's Edge.
I think the "worst" thing about this whole collaboration was that I didn't get to eat any of that delicious cookie, so I'll just have to imagine how that cookie tasted with the chocolate butercream and dark chocolate ganache! I hope they had plenty of milk on hand!! ;-)
