What’s better than opening a fortune cookie and know what you gonna get? You may not know what happens after you say “I do”, but if you make it, your fortune shall come.
So, as I was thinking of ideas for parting gifts or favors for a bridal dinner, I thought wouldn’t it be romantic to have personalized fortune cookies? I researched online and it was costly especially if you consider the shipping costs. The ingredients were inexpensive but the methods took some practice. Since you had to make these right out of the oven while they are still hot since you need to bend them while it is still pliable. I dipped these in candy melts and added edible pearls for a touch of elegance. But, you can make add cocoa powder to make them chocolate fortune cookies and dipped them in white for a black/white theme look as well. That is the good things about making them since the options are endless!
But it was worth it in the end, since I was able to insert romantic quotes from popular books and Buddha. Since the bride to be is Buddhist, I was able to find spiritual inspirations for her. I also included my favorite lines from Little Women such as “she will be rich in the possession of a good man’s heart, and that is better than a fortune.”
I gave these to the girls packaged in a hand made take out box. Now, handmade cookies and fortunes that I had a hand in is like a red cherry on top of a great dessert.
