Prettiest Thing in Our Office This Week: Patterned Cookies

cookies

Gorgeous fashion accessories, flower arrangements, wedding cakes and stationery cross our desks every day here in our New York City office. In “Prettiest Thing in Our Office This Week,” we’ll take you behind the scenes and show you our favorite item each Friday.

Did you know that cookies could be fashion-forward? Neither did we, until we laid eyes on these hand-decorated cookies by SweetAmbs on Etsy.com. On the left is a purple ombre confection and on the right, a blue filigree cookie with a gold border — both hand-piped. After snapping this photo, we ate them up, and we’re not exaggerating when we say these orange vanilla spice cookies taste as good as they look.
