Beautiful Vintage Inspired Cookies

Its Valentines Day tomorrow and if I was sending a special someone a gift I’d send these.

The Cookies are made by the Queen of Hearts Cookie Company. They are homemade and each individual cookie is then decorated by hand in some truly exquisite designs.

I was so lucky to be sent a large box of cookies to try.

Every single small detail has been thoroughly thought out, from the packaging and presentation in which your cookies arrive in, to the actual design of each cookie.

Mine arrived securely packaged to avoid breakages. Within the packaging I discovered a pretty purple box sealed with pretty decorative lace tape.

Inside the box within a covering of tissue paper I found 13 of the most prettiest cookies I’ve ever seen. The sheer prettiness of these made me want to display them on pretty vintage china plates laid out on a country table with strict instructions that these are just for show and no one must eat them! Of course that could never happen in my house not with 3 cookie monsters on the prowl.

Our cookies came in a mixture of shapes and sizes. Within our box there were 4 large hearts, 2 circular flower cookies and 7 small hearts.

The colour pallet chosen is one perfect for the occasion of Valentines.

The small red hearts are stunning with the little gold cherub design, making them truly unique to any other design of cookie I’m yet to see.

I love the black and white flowers that have been so delicately iced and then finished with pretty gold edible beads.

The large hearts below have been covered in a thick layer of black icing making the beautifully piped white lace stand out brilliantly.

The remaining small hearts feature a delicate flower that acts like a corsage for the heart… Very pretty on the eye.

The cookies taste wonderful. They are flavoured with vanilla and are of a wonderful texture.

The Queen of Hearts Cookie Company is ran by Sarah a very talented mother from Lancashire who is passionate about her cookie designs.

It all started with her idea to create her own mother some cookies for Mother’s Day, cookies that were inspired by the vintage china that dressed the tables at her summer wedding.

There are some beautiful cookie designs over on the Queen of Hearts website and it seems there is no design to difficult for this company to achieve. These are true designer cookies that have even been created for celebs. If your looking for cookies for any occasion, whether it be Valentines, birthdays, tea parties or a wedding, then I’d highly recommend you check them out!
