Two years in a row I’ve been fortunate enough to be invited to make cookies for Claire Pettibone’s runway show at New York International Bridal Week at Pier 94 in New York City. This year I created a cookie display complete with gum paste flowers and over 250 gum paste rose petals for the October 13th show. To make the cookie tower, my dad cut Styrofoam pieces for me at his shop (www.sawmoulding.com). The display is made up of 4″ tall foam blocks with 1/2″ foam core in between. I placed a dowel rod in the center to keep it steady. The foam blocks were wrapped in fondant and the foam core was wrapped in gold paper.
