I almost titled this post, "The eggs that nearly sent me over the edge", but I thought that was a little harsh. It's just that I worked 12 hours a day, for a week, on these babies, right after all of my Easter production. I was commissioned to make these for Sandi Hoffman, for an undisclosed party, with some sort of Faberge Egg theme. I was told by my contact, Myron (associate designer), that Sylvia Weinstock would be making the cake, and that my cookies would be RIGHT NEXT TO her cake. O.M.G. I was also told that the client was very detail oriented, and that the cookies really needed to replicate specific Faberge Eggs. Sure I can do that, I thought, with mock confidence. I looked at a zillion eggs and came up with 4 that I thought would work in cookie form. So, here they are, with their Faberge counterparts.
I experimented with Disco Dust for a sparkly effect on these. I've been finding glittery remnants in every imaginable crevice of my work space. . . and beyond.
Maybe I should've included a mini elephant cookie with this one?
So there they are. I spent so much time with these cookies that I've lost all perspective. I hope the client likes them. They are on their way to Washington, D.C. as I write. All I know, is that I'm taking a couple days off, unless of course, you want to order cookies, then, I'm on it!
