These pretty pink cookies were for a friend’s baby shower. We learned she was baking up a little girl when I made these cupcakes.
I made babies similar to these, but knew I wanted her smiling instead of screaming.
And since she is going to be the first girl baby in our group, and will be SO SO spoiled, they had to be princess themed. Diamonds and tiaras. 🙂 After outlining the tiaras, I painted them with silver luster dust mixed with a few drops of vodka. It turned them from grey to silver. Much more appropriate for princess attire.
I also threw in some mini hearts because they are easy and good fillers for a party when not everyone will take a larger (normal) sized cookie.
These were the first cookies I’ve made in a long time, besides my Christmas cookies. (Which, for the record, didn’t get finished… and the ones I did finish never got photographed so they never got shared. Meh.) It felt good to make cookies again, but my skills are definitely a little rusty. I’m not gonna lie – there were a lot of re-dos, and a few tears shed… and my husband standing behind me reassuring me that I’m being too hard on myself and that I’m just out of practice. *sigh* I seriously don’t know what I’d do without him. ❤
