DIY Downton – Silhouette cookie favours

To carry the silhouette theme a little further, we made silhouette favours, customized with the profiles of the bride and groom.


First step is to refer to the tutorial on creating a silhouette from earlier in the week. We used Martha Stewart’s Ideal Sugar Cookie recipe for these favours. To add contrast, we made the groom’s cookies chocolate by substituting ½ cup of flour for ½ cup of cocoa.


A card stock profile of the groom was placed on the dough and cut out with a sharp knife.



The cookies were wrapped in cellophane bags from Creative Packaging in Calgary. Miniature silhouette labels were added with a simple gold tie.



The cookies are easy to make, cute and delicious!
