Cookies are one of my favorite treats to enjoy with a hot cup of tea. I decided to make cupcake shaped sugar cookies as a treat for my niece and nephew and ended up decorating them as a bride and groom along with a couple of cupcake bridal party people. The bride and groom cookies should be the ones wearing sparkly crowns, but that’s just not the way it worked out when I was decorating. At first, I thought I would simply make cupcake princes and princesses, but then I decided to make bride and groom cupcake cookies as well. I covered them using white, black and skin toned royal icing and used edible ink markers to draw the ties and their faces (except for the eyes, those are royal icing as well).  I used pretty sanding sugar for the crowns and sugar pearls for the embellishments on the dresses of the princess cupcakes. 

Either way, my niece and nephew loved them, although my niece did not even realize that they were cupcake people! She thought they were just “oddly shaped people”. Lol.  Next time I make them I will definitely have to add ears and little arms to them. They are also a great party favor idea, whether it is for a birthday party, bridal shower or even a wedding!
