It may not work for everybody, but for the right kind of couple, the best way to start off a marriage is with the perfect union of delectable sweets. And it doesn't get much better than cookie plus cake. We're not talking about those blasé mall cookie cakes, either. Imagine large, tiered cookies made from the finest ingredients and topped with thick, creamy layers of icing. Sure, you can go for the classic chocolate chip, but, again, you're getting married, not going shopping, so why not class-up those baked balls of sugary dough with flavors like decadent dark chocolate, coconut or raspberry rugelach? Of course, old standbys like snickerdoodle, peanut butter and, yes, chocolate chip will also serve you and your guests well, especially when paired with the right kind of icing. Just imagine a lemon cookie base with a rich, bittersweet chocolate frosting. Now that's a union to celebrate!
