Waddle It Be? {Baby Shower Cookies}

Waddle It Be? Baby Shower Cookies -by amber's hands-

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. 😉

Monster Cookies!

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.

Anywho.

Baby Shower Cookies- Boy

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!
