Baby Boy - Sweet Baby Shower Cookies

Typically, I do most of my sugar cookie decorating with fondant and sometimes accent with some piping.  Because it's quick and easy, but mostly because it's a medium I am very comfortable with (maybe that's why it's quick & easy?).  From time to time, an opportunity comes along for me to "break out of my comfort zone" and try something a little different.

My son's teacher recently had a baby and the class threw her a surprise baby shower.  I offered to bring some decorated cookies.... I decided this was the perfect opportunity to make some royal icing decorated cookies, something I don't have a lot of experience at.... AND I tried my hand and some different piping techniques (including writing the baby's name in teeny, tiny lettering!)... Writing/piping with icing is not my "best" thing so I was a little intimidated.

I am so pleased with how they turned out.  Aren't they cute?  They feel kind of like a vintage "throw back" design for a traditional baby shower to me...

Baby Bottles, Umbrellas & Rattles, Oh My!

Umbrellas!   I just love the rain drops & polka dots
on these guys

These were fun because I got to try several different patterns and designs... 

They were so much fun to make and the class enjoyed them as well.  His teacher gave birth to a beautiful baby boy (and I do mean beautiful... man is that baby ever cute!).

Congratulations Ms. Kirkwood!
