Mickey & Minnie Baby Shower Cookies

This mama-to-be is so very special to me. We’ve known each other since first grade. We went to elementary, middle, and high school together and I introduced her to her husband, who was a coworker of mine. And now they’re about to have their first baby! It was a Mickey and Minnie themed shower, and I got to make the cookies. 

I’ve made Mickey cookies once before (here) but I knew I wanted to do something different this time. And since they’re having a little girl, of course I had to do Minnie too! 

Sidenote – I decided years ago that I’m not making character cookies anymore. It’s so difficult to achieve the likeness of a character and it was way too stressful. Everyone is their own worst critic, and I was NOT nice to myself when I made characters. Instead, I prefer to do details and patterns that are still representative of the character or theme – but stress free!

I did a basic Mickey… (because it’s so easy and recognizable – you don’t even need a face!)

 

… Minnie’s bow (which I learned the hard way is NOT actually shaped like a bow) (can you tell what cutter shape I ended up using?) …

 

Minnie’s heels…

 

…and baby onesies! The G is for Gloria. Isn’t that the most gorgeous name?!

 

I was so happy with how these turned out. The colors really popped and they looked great with the rest of the decor and food.
