Gingerbread Giant Cookies: a memorable holiday party favor!

SWEETTABLESCAPES just had the pleasure of providing SONY with their holiday party favor. The special project was meant to celebrate the iconic building which was the corporation’s home for many years before their upcoming move to another location. For all of you architecture fans out there, you will recognize Philip Johnson’s design and its very original roofline:

Finally came the time to package them all and attach a tag:
The “pile” is starting to shrink as the party gets closer to an end…
