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!

One of my dearest friends is adopting an adorable little boy and this weekend was her adoption shower. Her sister did such a great job organizing everything and the safari theme couldn’t have been more perfect!! I offered to make cookie favors for all the guests…to be honest, there’s really nothing I wouldn’t have done to help, but this is an area I’m definitely comfortable with ;)
Decided to do three different safari animals based on the cartoon animals on the invites.
I cannot wait for my friend to bring home her son. Such an exciting year for them!!! She and her hubby are going to make amazing parents :)))

It seems like I’ve been getting a lot of requests for baptism and first communion favors. Must be in the air!
My most recent cookie challenge was for a little girl’s baptism. Her Mom sent along some photos of baby’s room and a fabric swatch of baby’s bedding. It was the most beautiful dusty rose I’ve ever seen! I tried hard to replicate and hope she likes the colors. Mom wanted vanilla and strawberry, which was cute since the strawberry cookie dough was pink like the bedding! Baby’s room is decorated in cherubs…who wouldn’t want to wake up among those sweet angels :)
I envisioned wispy wings of feathers and used my paint brush to move the icing around for the effect. The hair has some curl to it which I love! When the icing had dried for about 5 minutes I went back with a toothpick and drew in the hair strands, which created curls at the ends. I know baby has light brown hair (peach fuzz!) but pictured curls too :) I wanted big eyes on the cherubs like those from Precious Moments, but with each attempt the eyes got googlier and googlier. So I had to make an executive decision and went with sleepy eyes. I guess I should practice eyes!
I hope Mom and guests enjoy these little ones. It was sad to have such angelic cookies fly away ;)

One of my good friends just had her first baby this week and I’m super excited to go see her in the hospital tonight and meet the little angel! I remember those few days in the hospital bed craving something super sugary and delicious. Let’s be real…it’s difficult to cut out those extra calories from sugar right away! So I thought I’d bring my friend and her hubby a little something to munch on at 8am, 2pm, 8pm or 3am! Whenever the craving takes over :)
Welcome our wonderful and crazy world Teddy! I already can’t wait to spoil you rotten :))
