Goo Goo Gaa Gaa…the past two weeks were full of adorable baby onesies! One order for little girl onesies to coordinate with a tutu themed 1st birthday and one order for little boy onesies matching a baby shower invitation. Now that my daughter is over 1 and technically no longer considered a baby (in my books they’ll always be my babies though!!) it was fun decorating these cookies and reminiscing about their baby months Awww Yep…I’m a softie for babies Hope both parties enjoy their sweet little baby onesies!

When I started my business I pictured myself making snowflake cookies, hearts for loved ones, and cartoon characters for birthday favors. While I never thought about the designs of cookies I wouldn’t ever make, this past week I had to laugh because I’m fairly certain if I had, these would have been on my list. I received an order for Kimberly-Clark product cookies. We’re talking Kotex, Depend, Kleenex, Poise, Huggies, and Pull-ups. Yep…don’t think I ever would have thought I’d be decorating tampons But the day has come and I’m super glad it did! They turned out awesome and I had soooo much fun coming up with the designs. Love feeling those creative juices flowing
Here’s how it all started…I wanted some funny designs and others the product logo:
Then came what colors I would need. When I realized how many colors I originally planned for, I cut back a few of the non-essentials:
And here they are folks! The K-C product cookies! Hope they enjoy

I have officially deemed Chris as my funniest customer thus far! OMG she is a riot! I enjoyed every email correspondence as it always made me laugh. I even read her responses to my husband and he laughed! Wish we lived closer…I have a feeling it would be fun to get to know her
Chris emailed me last week inquiring about alphabet letters. She signed up to bring cookies to her daughter’s school and self diagnosed herself as being in over her head. I commend her for recognizing this early on…I would have been elbow deep in flour the day before cookies were due, crying to my husband that “I Can’t Do This!!” So pat on the back Chris!! Here’s how our cookie relationship started:
The tutorials I have just watched on youtube have immediately filled me with dread and made me confront my limitations. So, I am appealing to you. However, before I even begin to search for letter stencils, make dough, xacto cut out the letters, make a usable batch of royal icing for the very first time in my life, pipe out the outlines, fill them in, shake cookies, and poke out bubbles for 26 letters (!!!!) I thought I would solicit an estimate from you if you are interested and available to do this.
How can I say no to someone that funny! It also reminded me when I started getting into cookies and watched hundreds of YouTube videos. I was terrified as well! And those damn bubbles STILL give me nightmares! Grrr…
Had so much fun decorating these cookies…and fun spelling out mine and my daughter’s names. I would have spelled out my husband’s, but he has repeat letters so he had to sit this one out
The inspiration for the uber cool color scheme was taken directly from the book her daughter’s class was reading
