Unique Elegant Wedding Cakes...Sardinian Candalaus

This Italian wedding cookie recipe comes from the region of Sardinia.

Their proper Sardinian name name is Pastissus and they are mainly homemade especially when you see them in their full glory.

Unique Ideas For A Wedding Cookie

The fine delicate detailed decorations applied to the wedding cookies recall the Sardinian filigree traditions.

The cookie recipe that I have shared is a simple recipe with simple ingredients. Although when you look at it for the first time you may think it is complicated.

I have to admit that it is time consuming, but the fact that you can make them up in advance, is a great advantage.

One of the things that distinguish these beautiful creations are the tiny flowers used to decorate them.

These flowers are not so easily found even here, as they are made entirely by hand, even the sugar paste is homemade.

Made Flowers

I have been baking professionally for about 20 years  and I have get to find a place where these tiny beautiful flowers can be bought commercially.

So if you know anywhere that does sell them , please let me know.

These flowers on their own give any wedding cookie that extra special touch, but we can go even further…

If you can get hold of silver or gold luster dust, pop a teaspoon of powder into a small container and add a few drops of water until you obtain smooth liquid paste.

With a fine tipped paint brush, gently apply the paint to the edges of the rose petals. The effect is truly amazing.

Using a fine  writing nozzle to pipe your icing decorations, will make your wedding cookie look even more delicate and elegant.

Do we really want to go OTT? Of course we do…

When your piped icing has thoroughly dried, you can enhance some of the piping by painting it with the luster dust. It truly makes a difference.
