A few weeks ago, a friend asked if I could make cookies for a baby shower. I have lots of ideas for baby shower cookies, so I didn’t think it would be a problem. However, there was a challenge involved–she asked if I could make the cookies to match the nursery theme of the baby shower gifts.
I love a challenge.
The Pottery Barn Kids’ Penelope Nursery theme was incredibly cute with soft pastel colors, adorable birds, and a homey handsewn look.
More birds below, after the jump.
To match the Penelope theme, I iced the cookies with base coats of white, pink, and mint green. Using the KopyKake projector, I was able to draw the bird shapes directly onto the iced cookies.
After piping the bird, I added the branches and feet. The “stitched” border completes the look. There were 4 different designs I created.
Once they were completely dry, I placed the cookies in individual treat bags and tied the bags with ribbon for a cute shower favor any mom-to-be would be happy with (hopefully!).
