Happy Monday, everyone! I hope today is treating you all better than it’s treating us. Little Man and I woke up sick today, so that’s kind of bumming us out. But luckily for all of you, being a little under the weather doesn’t keep me from sitting on the couch cuddled up in some blankets with my laptop, writing a blog post.
As you all know, if you read this blog, my sister and I make decorated sugar cookies now and again. We usually make a batch a few times a year. Well, recently I heard that Amy from Minnesota Locavore was looking for some custom cookies for a baby shower, and I said I’d be willing to take an order. She took me up on it!
Amy was throwing a gender reveal shower for her sister-in-law and the theme was “Waddle it be?” So, naturally, she wanted penguin cookies. I’m pretty sure that’s the cutest theme ever. I love penguins, and since it’s still colder than a witch’s you-know-what around here, it seems appropriate. 😉
Well, friends, I have my computer back! I actually got it back on Friday (the next day!) but have been working on restoring all the things I lost. I had some trouble with getting my free photo editing software to work again, but it’s working now (as well as it ever did.)
Last week I told you I was making monster cookies. Well, I did. And they were adorable. I’m giving a little bit of a tutorial for those of you who’ve asked, but I apologize in advance that I had to take the pictures at night, so they’re not the best.
It is insanely windy today.
That has nothing whatsoever to do with today’s post, but it’s worth noting.
I’m glad I didn’t wear a skirt today.
Todays post is about cookies! A few weeks ago, somewhere in the craziness before Little Man’s birthday, my sister and I made cookies for my friend Meredith’s sister-in-law’s baby shower.
These were for a baby boy. We went with a simpler palette than we’d done with other cookies, and not only did it make it a bit easier on us, I think it makes for a cleaner, more uniform look.
Overall, I really like the way they turned out. We’re getting better! I only got a chance to take one quick picture of these, so sorry– no detail shots.
I hope you get inspired to make your own decorated sugar cookies– they’re much easier than they look!
My cousin Samantha is having a baby. She’s due in less than two weeks now! But we had a baby shower for her at church a couple weeks ago. And my sister and I made cookies.
Adorable baby-themed sugar cookies. (more…)
