I absolutely loved these baby shower cookies I made for a co-worker.
Lindsay's little boy, Jackson, is adorable!
These cookies were made to look like simple wooden blocks and I had a fun time doing cursive J's. I felt like I was back in elementary school practicing my letters over and over again.
Because I had so many cookies to tie, I used simple balloon ribbon. I'm not really a fan of the ribbon, but it's a simple and cheap solution to packaging a lot of cookies.
A cool trick I learned was to put a design or a printed sheet of letters under a piece of wax paper. Then you take your thick royal icing and trace the designs. Once dried for a minimum of 24 hours, you can CAREFULLY peel the design and plop it onto your cookie when ready.
These J's were done with the same process. Next time around I will use a better icing tip. It's a PME 1 tip that I'm dying to get. They're made in England and are totally seemless. They're the perfect size for writing!
That PME tip sure would have been helpful while piping the word prince over and over again.
Not gonna lie....I was totally wishing I had a raspberry beret to wear while I was making these cookies.
Congratulations Lindsay on your handsome little prince!! So glad to have you back at work!Add a comment »
