baby shower cookies

My friend Sue had asked me to make cookie favors for a baby shower that she was hosting, and we decided that onesies and teddy bears would be perfect.  I ended up making three batches of my favorite homemade sugar cookie recipe - this made about 60 cookies, since she needed 24 favors and each favor would have one of each cookie, and I always make extra to allow for mess-ups!

Since the baby shower invitations were done in lavender, I went with that color theme for the royal icing.

I had bought little cellophane favor bags to package them in, but the onesie cookies were too big and wouldn't fit!  So I had to resort to using ziplock sandwich bags with the "ziplock" cut off.  Then I tied them with raffia and a custom tag (thanks to my husband for staying up late and helping me package them!).


  1. Oh they look so cute...
    perfect for a baby shower...
    and looks so yummy too:)

  2. these are so cute! I've been itching for a reason to make sugar cookies to design :) Oh and I saw your Macarons..I've been meaning to try making those again :)

  3. What recipe do you use for the royal icing, if you don't mind me asking?

    1. @Culinary Couture - i use the royal icing recipe from peggy porschen's "pretty party cakes":
