My "fancy" cookie cutter's a keeper!

A neighbor was so kind as to order four dozen cookies for her nephew's wedding a week ago.  She had a specific design in mind - a white cross with two interlocking gold wedding rings.  Very elegant and very doable.  

However, the only cross cutter I had was very plain (see below).

This was my first wedding cookie order and I wanted something a little more "fancy"...

I found this little number at, along with gold sanding sugar, which I used for the wedding rings in the center.

Here is what the final cookie design looked like...

Now that's elegant, simple, AND fancy!

Guess what the official name of this cookie cutter is?
"Cross Cookie Cutter (Fancy)"

Now here's another part of the story - 

I shared the above photo to's facebook page, and they submitted it as an entry in their Easter Cutter Random Drawing Giveaway.

Guess who won first prize??

Here's another part - 

My sweet neighbor shared a photo of the cookies displayed around the wedding cake, sent me a testimonial, and recommended my cookies to everyone on our Neighborhood Yahoo Group site.

Her testimonial:

Kara—I just wanted to say THANKS for the wonderful cookies you made for my nephew’s wedding.  Everyone thought they looked wonderful and then when they tasted them they were blown away again!  The cookies really added a special touch to this special wedding day.  If you ever need a recommendation, please let me know.  Thanks again—Peace, Kathleen

I also used this cutter to make Easter cookies, pictured below:

(The designs are not original and the sayings are old favorites, but I think it's a pretty display of what Easter is all about)

I'm telling you, this cutter and I were meant to be!

My first purchase at, and it certainly won't be my last!

The Easter cookies are so beautiful, and so meaningful! I am already scheming how to get some next year. Perhaps you'll be traveling north???

Thanks, Cristin! The emails I have received from them are so nice! They even asked to exchange decorated cookies for cutters! How "sweet" is that? :)
