I made some cookies for a baby shower that a friend of mine attended this past weekend. I’m really loving the color of these. This springtime weather we are having lately is very fitting for the pastel spring-like colors!
I hadn’t broken out my sailboat cookie cutter in probably 5+ years, so that was a fun one to make. The teddy bears are easily one of my all-time favorites. I made half the bears with the solid brown flood icing and the other half with different designs using all of the colors in the batch. I know some people don’t like a ton of icing on their cookies, and it’s also fun to play with different designs.
I’m really happy with how they turned out and it sounds like they were a hit at the party! Thank you, Jennifer! I am already working on my next couple of orders, so you will be seeing those soon. I will be making some for a St. Patty’s Day birthday and also some for Easter.
One of my dearest friends here in Raleigh was out on maternity leave for the last couple of months. As happy and excited as I was for her to welcome her adorable baby boy to the world, I missed her terribly at the office. I wanted to make sure that she felt welcome and missed when she came back. I know that she and her family have always been fans of my sugar cookies, so I thought, why not surprise her by leaving cookies on her desk for when she came back to work?
As you can (and will) see, I find all kinds of reasons and occasions to make cookies. You wouldn’t believe all the different types of cookie cutters you can find out there!
