Star Wars Groom’s Cookies

12 Jul

I got married a few weeks ago, and it was the best and happiest day ever!! Leading up to the wedding, there were a few things I absolutely could not wait to delight my guests with on the big day. One of these was the Star Wars cookies I custom-ordered–Yoda, Darth Vader, and Storm Troopers–as a surprise for my new hubby.

My hubby is a Star Wars fan. I mean, he doesn’t just watch the movies (over and over), he reads Star Wars books too! I knew that Groom’s Cakes are a big trend now. But I couldn’t decide on a design.  Well, one day I was shopping in Beverly Hills, and lo and behold, I saw the super cutest Star Wars Cookie Cutters at Williams Sonoma. I knew it would be the perfect thing to surprise my groom at the wedding! I asked my awesome dessert vendor (Diana Chou Designs) to make these. And they were a hit. Yay! Weddings can get super girly and easily overpowered by all sorts of feminine details and touches. So it was cool to have an element that got not just my hubby, but our macho male guests excited too! And of course, the kids at the wedding were ecstatic to see Star Wars cookies. The Groom’s Cookies were just one part of the larger mini-dessert bar. The bar was supposed to be off limits at the wedding until the cake cutting, but it was impossible to protect from wandering eyes and sneaking fingers. I literally had one guest (my friend Jason Melendez of WedShare) defiantly waving around a Storm Trooper he had grabbed while I was squabbling with another guest caught red-handed at the dessert table. LOL. At the end of the day, I think all that defiance incited by the hands-off dessert policy was a sign that the dessert table was a definite crowd-pleaser 😉
