Gingerbread Giant Cookies: a memorable holiday party favor!

December 17, 2015 § 2 Comments

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:

So our job was to duplicate the structure as a “gingerbread building” and make it a bit more festive with the addition of 3 accent sugar cookies:  Stars and snowflakes with a metallic icing!

How do you cut 225 giant (6 1/2 inches tall by 3 1/2 wide) cookies with such a specific shape? You turn to Truly Mad Plastics! With a cardboard template of my creation, they were able to duplicate the shape precisely and save me from the impossible task of cutting so many cookies by hand!

The rest is history and many hours of dough making, dough cutting, dough baking IMG_0007and finally dough icing. To create the many windows on the facade, we used these perfect and very helpful tools: stencils from the Cookie Countess: We used Squares and Random Squares.

Here is a glimpse at our production:

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…
