Woodland Wedding Place Name Cookies

Edible wedding favours are always well received! We love these woodland place names with their sweet little acorn designs.

These simple place names by Marie McGrath from Marie’s Bakehouse are perfect for an autumnal wedding.

Woodland Wedding Place Name Cookies


For the cookies

  • your favourite cookie dough (I used vanilla)

To decorate

  • green sugarpaste (I used gooseberry ProGel to colour mine)
  • brown sugarpaste (I used brown ProGel to colour mine)
  • cooled boiled water
  • piping consistency royal icing, coloured brown


  • rectangular cookie cutter
  • small acorn cutter
  • paintbrush
  • piping bag and nozzle
  • dresden tool


  1. Roll out the cookie dough and cut out several rectangular cookies with the cutter or freehand.

  2. Bake the cookies following the recipe instructions, then leave to cool completely.

  3. Roll out some green sugarpaste and, using the same cookie cutter you used for the cookies, cut out rectangular shapes.

  4. Use cooled boiled water to stick the sugarpaste rectangles to each cookie.

  5. Roll out some brown sugarpaste, then cut out some acorn shapes. Use a dresden tool to mark lines on the cut out shape to give it texture.

  6. Using cooled boiled water, stick the acorn to the left-hand side of the cookie.

  7. Pipe the required names onto the cookies.

  8. Once dry, put the cookies in cellophane bags and tie with a ribbon for a personalised gift.
