Harry Potter Baby Shower

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.

Bear in Mind

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.
