Baby Boy Sugar Cookies

My younger sister had her baby boy a few weeks ago.  I haven’t been out of the “baby stage” for that long (my youngest is 3), but as I was holding this tiny baby, I had such a hard time picturing my kids when they were that young–even though their baby pictures are still hanging on the wall in the hallway, haha.  Time can be such a deceiver, you know?

My daughter came with me to see this precious baby in the hospital, and it was so cute to see the care and dedication she had holding and caring for the baby.  Though, she did have a hard time understanding that you couldn’t put the hat over the whole face and that eyes were made for looking, not for poking.  (What is the fascination with toddlers wanting to poke eyes?)

Last month I helped host a baby shower for her, and the only thing my sister requested was decorated sugar cookies.

I decided to go with a light pastel palette, and found some cute inspiration on Pinterest. Ahh, gotta love Pinterest. A few of the cookies got dented in transit, but on the whole, they turned out well.  Continue reading

Baby Girl Shower

My good friend is having a baby girl soon.  Like in three weeks soon, and I couldn’t be happier for her.  I had the honor of helping host the shower, with my main job being to bring the desserts.  Her colors are pink and green and I spent a while deciding how I wanted to coordinate her colors into the desserts.  After much, much thought, I decided on vanilla cupcakes topped with a light pink vanilla buttercream frosting and a sprinkling of light green sugar pearls. (You can find the recipe for these cupcakes here.)

And for favors for the guests, I made sugar cookies.  (You can find the cookie and royal icing recipes in this lengthy post.)  Here they are all packaged up and ready for the guests to take home.  Lots of pink!  (I have two boys in my house, so pink is not a color I see very often.)

Here’s a close-up of the pink elephants and onesie cookies before I packaged them. Continue reading

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies

It was my friend Alonna’s baby shower this past Saturday.  I was asked to make favors (I was so honored!) and decided to make cute baby-inspired lemon sugar cookies.  Her baby room theme was “unofficially” jungle  (as she called it) and I used this background paper as my inspiration.

When I was beginning to pipe these animals onto the onseies, I thought that the lion was going to be the easiest one to do, but he was actually the hardest.  I am not entirely pleased with the lions, but for my first time piping any type of animal, they turned out pretty good.

So here is the lion:

And the elephant: Continue reading
