This is a great idea... as long as your future fiance doesn't just bite in to fortune cookies like I do!

How funny! I always go straight for the fortune. I didn't even think about someone biting into the cookie first.
Nice. I did this about 10 years ago. Just a plain cookie. I brought it with us to our favorite Thai restaurant and switched it with the real one when she wasn't looking. It worked :)

Neat idea for a romantic proposal..

it is a female hand making the cookies :-)
