Chocolate Hearts for a Wedding

Entrance of Rice Table

Remember my promise to let you in on my wedding cookie project?

That picture up there says it all. In dark brown and in hearts.

Chocolate Heart Shaped Cookies for a wedding - Jason and Jen's wedding to be exact. They're both such wonderful people. Jason is my kickboxing instructor and Jen goes for his classes (duh!) too so that's how I got to know her.

It all started when Jason approached me with a suggestion; that I bake cookies for everyone attending their wedding. And of course I immediately asked "How many?". He wanted each of his guest to have 2 cookies so the final number came to 230.

So I sat there and thought... 230.. okay. It might seem daunting but I should be able to do it since I've done this sort of 'endless baking' when I do my bake sales. So I said yes.

And that yes amounted to loads of cookies that look so pretty:

I decided to make it heart shaped and I baked and baked and baked....

I did it over two days. I mixed the dough and left it overnight in the fridge so it'll be easy to cut the next day.

Then last Wednesday night, I rushed home from school to bake through the night and I must say I was pretty satisfied. You decide:

Tahu Telor

These are chocolate cookies and I used Hershey's Cocoa.

In the end, I baked about 260 pieces of the cookies.

So were the couple satisfied?

What do you think?

Their wedding was last Friday and it was held at the Singapore Art Museum's Glass Hall. It was a cosy and sweet affair. Simple, understated and elegant. The bride (Jen) looked stunning in her tailor-made gown! And Jason, the groom recited a poem. It was soooo touching. Wow. God Bless them both! Congratulations to you two once again. May you have a blessed and blissful marriage!!

Here's my cookies on one of the wedding tables:

I heard that the guests liked my cookies so that was good to hear. I was relieved that everything went well.

To be honestly, I was initially really stressed about not being able to finish baking the cookies on time. But thank God everything went as planned.

Here's the recipe: Chocolate Cut Out Cookies

It's a simple recipe but I halved the amount of sugar again. It was perfect. I didn't want the sugar to overwhelm the chocolate taste. Try it - it's really fool-proof.

Okay, time to hit the books! Just 13 days to my exams! EEEks!

i'm gonna try these cookies for an anniversary present. ;) gonna make them into a sandwich.

the baker said...

Shanti: i'm glad you like what you see! :) thanks for dropping by!

Angie: thanks! trying to concentrate really hard and refrain from going near the oven.

Sing Yin: haha yea you must try for yourself. yea, my other half aways get to sample everything i cook or bake. hehe. thanks for the well wishes!

mala: my cookie cutter was from Daiso. But it wasn't the cookie cutter that did the trick. it was because i refrigerated the dough before cutting it out. It helps retain the shape esp since Sg's weather is so humid! yes, i kept to the rest of the ingredients.

girl: thank you~ oh yea, it was turkey bacon in the other post :p

mariya: have fun! these taste great with ice cream too by the way!

btw, hv u heard of this at-sunrice school? i think its similar to le cordon bleu, where there's diploma in pastry making. but the fees is like $18,000. its a local school.

michie: babe I used unsalted butter. Just get the ones in blocks. no, don't use spread! it'll be different... ya i think you'll like it. it's yummy

Jen: they're crisp. well I used only baking soda. my aunt gave me a tip - for crunchy cookies, use baking powder. for crisp ones, use baking soda. haha not sure what's the diff though!

My Space: thanks for your kind words! hehe

Howdy! miss talented chef,

may i know, when the recipe says 1 CUP, what's the exact measurement? Or how much would you suggest I follow?


Anonymous said...

Hey~ I love all your yummy food u make!
Btw, in the link u posted, it says use both baking soda & powder.. so do you suggest using just one and ommitting the other?


Anonymous said...

i tried doing the cookies. How come mine turned out to be so dry n bitter?

the baker said...

cello: I sugguest you check out this useful site>>>

It's very specific and helpfuL!

Eunice: heya, yea when I made mine, I used only baking soda. It's good enough. Baking soda makes cookies crisp while baking soda makes it crunchy. sounds the same to me, but that's what my aunt said!

anon: heya, hmmm did you follow the measurements correctly? check out the measurement equivalent website I pasted above?

Informative details on history of viagra confirm that the anti-impotency drug Viagra was actually developed by researchers with the purpose of curing angina but incidentally during clinical trails, the drug was found effective in treating erectile dysfunction in men. With clinical results demonstrating the powerful effects of Viagra in triggering off erections necessary for sexual intercourse,impotency afflicted worldwide opted for the medication and the viagra phenomenon also offered suitable assistance to them in countering erectile dysfunction. Slowly and gradually Viagra has developed a deepest level of relationship with men which has further led to an indelible association between viagra and sexuality. And right now viagra and erectile dysfunction related tidbits are popular throughout the world and erectile dysfunction afflicted men worldwide are administering Viagra under medical supervision.

Sometimes it happens that for the same ailment different treatments are offered by different doctors. This confuses the patients to a great deal. Which treatment to go for, which doctor to follow etc, etc. Under these circumstances people can refer to the
patient info sites where they can get all the information regarding the disease, its treatments, prices etc.
