W is for Will.
I had the opportunity to make some adorable lime, white and navy blue cookies for a baby shower this weekend. My sorority sister, Betsey, is about to have her second baby, a little boy who will be named Will.
His room is ADORABLE. Looks like it was ripped straight out of a magazine. It's being done in those 3 colors and alligators.
I loved making these cookies for the second time. I did better on the technique and application of the white squares.
I was so excited to do these alligator cookies. I honestly had no idea how they would turn out. I usually preach about having some design concept before you start, but in this case, the opposite was true. On Thursday night, as I was flooding the cookies, I knew exactly how the other two cookies were going to be decorated. But the big scalloped square? I flooded it white in hopes that a design would come to me.
And on Friday evening when I started decorating them, thank goodness, a design did come to me. I kept it simple and challenged myself to do something original. So I googled alligator baby bedding, hoping to find a playful and fun looking alligator. Target came through. They're alligator baby bedding is adorable.
So I said a little prayer and began freehanding the alligators.
Mostly, because I was too lazy to create any form of a template.
I was also quite proud of these cookies. It was the first time the wet on wet icing technique worked exactly the way I wanted it to. I wish my handwriting had been better, but it was 1:00 am and everything was rather blurry by this point.
Somehow this picture makes me happy.
I think it's because they're neatly stacked.
Which means they're dry.
Which means they're finished.
Packaged and on display at the shower.
