This little slugger is rounding third base and heading for home. Always a “hit” to welcome a new baby boy and this baby shower was a sweet nod to his dad’s love of baseball! Used my favorite onsie cutter is from Kaleida Cuts and “baby” cutter from Bobbi’s Cutters on Etsy!
This sweet baby will be coming this spring. She or he will be welcomed even more than the blooming flowers! Welcome, welcome!
There are a lot of us out there who adore Harry Potter and his magical world. This expectant mom is especially inclined toward Gryffindor colors. Soon, this new little muggle will be snuggled and celebrate making his or her own magic in the world.
Theodore R M was born on February the 11th! Happy, healthy babies are a great reason to celebrate! These cookies are for a bit belated baby shower celebrating Teddy (that’s what they are going to call him!). Naturally, a teddy bear theme was perfect for the occasion.
The teddy bears (panda bear cutter from Bobbi’s Cookie Cutters) started with a base coat of brown. Using Lila Loa‘s book for guidance, I mixed chocolate brown with purple to achieve the desired color. Once that was dry, I dabbed on some spots of same color icing and stippled with a stiff brush to achieve the “teddy bear texture.”
I let that dry for 1 hour and added the arms, nose and feet. After drying overnight, I stippled the arms and added hands.
Simple eye and nose details were added last, along with the rosy cheeks. The flower was made using wafer paper and a Martha Stewart (I think) Recollections punch (from Michaels). I painted them silver with a blue center (to match other cookie highlights ). Flowers were incorporated to match the invitation.
The stencil airbrushed on the 2 other cookies can be found at Killer Zebras.
My niece was trying to decide on the theme for her November baby shower. She was wavering between “Lil Pumpkin” and “Sweet as Pie”; well, why not both? Orange streamers and little baby pumpkins were strewn like confetti around house. Pies from her favorite local pie baker, Mom’s Apple Pie (boy, were they scrumptious), were the centerpieces of the dessert table. And, of course, there were as many MMB cookies as I could carry on the plane. (Seriously, the DIA security folks don’t even bat an eye at my copious amounts of cookies anymore.) Here are some of the cookies that were plated for the dessert table. (Kaleida Cuts for the win on the wonkie onesie cookie cutter).
And these bad boys were bagged and tagged for the favors. (yep, it’s a boy…)
My niece is expecting her first child! Had to think of some pregnancy puns, pronto! It’s important to make light of an ever expanding situation, you know…
Here’s that cute onesie shape from Kaleida Cuts again! (yes, I am slightly obsessed…)
