B-b-b-b-b-b-bird, B-b-bird is the Word: Baby Shower Cookies

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.

The complete set of two dozen cookies, plus extra to account for any mishaps during transport.

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!).

All wrapped up and ready to go. A clear cellophane treat bag and some coordinating ribbon complete the look.  This picture was snapped early in the (dark) morning, so give me a break about the crap lighting, OK?
