Too Pretty to Eat

Several vendors generously donated their wares to create gift bags for the Blog Out Loud event on Sunday. Each contained a delectable cookie from Amber at Sweet Ambs. They're almost too pretty to eat don't you think?


Love this floral cookie. How can you possibly eat it?

I think these cameo cookies are among my favorites

SweetAmbs cookies are made from a basic sugar cookie recipe, which is then flavored with fresh orange zest, vanilla beans, and a hint of cardamom. The royal icing has a dash of vanilla extract to bring together the wonderful flavors of the cookie.



These cookies are inspired by Wedgewood...

Aren't these monogrammed cookies lovely? Sold in sets of 6

These Royal Crown cookies are fit for a Queen!

You can purchase SweetAmbs cookies here on Etsy. She does custom work too!!
