My favorite time of the year is here, Holiday Season! As a baker, it is the busiest time as well. So when I get the chance to host, it's a relief and such a joy to entertain! Hosting my second Thanksgiving this year, I wanted to do something a little more special and personal for my guests. So I decided this year, I'm going to make these cookie name cards!
You will need:
-Alcohol or water to "paint" on cookies
After baking your cookies, let them cool and prepare white icing. Ice your cookies and let them dry until they are hard enough not to crack, but still moist enough to press on with the gold leaf.
Let them dry for about 1-2 hours before "painting" on them. Once they are dry, pick your colors. You only need a little since gel food coloring is so potent. Paint away and let dry again for about one hour.
Now you can pipe names of your guests on your cookies. These are perfect to lay on plates or prop them on a tiny succulent or any way you want them! Your guests will love them! You can make these 1-2 days ahead if you are going to be too busy prepping on Thanksgiving day :)
