Jane Austen Sugar Cookies for a Jane Austen Tea Party Birthday

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

My friend Katie (who runs an awesome blog called French Pemberley--check it out!) has a daughter named Audrey, who is one of my daughter's dear friends.  So when Audrey asked if I might be willing to make some sugar cookies for her birthday party, of course the answer was yes.  I love making cookies for friends!  And then I found out the theme.  Jane Austen Tea Party.  Is little Audrey the most awesome kid, or what??  I couldn't wait to make cookies on that theme.

Wet on wet rose pattern tea party cookies for the Jane Austen tea party birthday.

I knew I wanted to make tea cups and tea pots, of course.  Something sweet, feminine, and classic.  I used Sweetambs' fabulous wet-on-wet roses tutorial to make these cookies.  

Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet hand painted sugar cookies

But when I thought of the Jane Austen/English tea party theme, I immediately thought of classic English portrait miniatures.  I knew I wanted to create cookie portrait miniatures of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet.

I only had time to paint two portrait miniatures before flying off to Salt Lake City for the SNAP conference, but that was enough to make the set feel complete.

And the birthday girl reportedly loved it!  Aren't the girls (sisters--Audrey is the oldest girl) adorable in their regency dresses?  Party details will surely be available soon on French Pemberly.  You won't want to miss it!
