A baby shower party is mostly a tea-time affair. A handful of dear friends and relatives gather to celebrate the oncoming birth of a new life. Elaborate menus are rarely seen at showers; mostly the food tends to be light yet a feast for the eyes.
A very imperative aspect of a baby shower is to have cookies in the menu or as guest favors. Now cookies are something that you can apply your wide imagination to. You can bring a cookie to life just by adding a little decoration; they can be used to convey messages and can be done in any shape or color and even decorated to match the theme of your party. Here I have an array of cookies that are easy to make but superbly cute that anyone looking at them is sure to skip a heart beat.
Cookies For A Baby Shower
Though carrying baby in a carriage may be a rare sight in today’s modern world yet baby-carriages are something that every mother can relate to. All you need to do is with a carriage shaped cookie cutter you cut out rolled cookie dough and bake. Cool the cookies.
Use royal blue icing or rose pink flow icing to add color to the cookies. You can use any other color to suit the theme . After the basic color has dried use another shade of color to make dots and swirls in the carriage to create wheels and other designs. Any cookie flavor can be used.
Bibs resemble babies and babies resemble happiness to a mother. Make these cute bibs in different colors and designs and see the mommy-to-be gush with happiness. Prepare miniature candies using a rubber ducky mold and candy colors (yellow and orange).Roll out your cookie dough and cut bibs using a cookie cutter.
Bake them and cool. Use royal icing to decorate the bibs in different colors and dry overnight. Attach a candy ducky at the center of each bib using royal icing. You can attach small ribbon cuts with royal icing to resemble an actual bib.
