Baby Mine

So here I am back again with a new post in my week of sugar cookies. In the parent play group that I belong to, there are several of the Moms expecting babies in the next couple of months. One little guy was just born last week, so I decided to make up some cute cookies to take over to the happy family. These came out even cuter then imagined, and I will definitely make them again.

I colored my royal icing a peach for the baby faces.

Then after whipping up a batch of marshmallow fondant, I cut circles out of it. Then I cut each circle in half to make the hats.

I used a small circle cutter to make the pompoms for the hats. I then took a knife and made little marks on each pompom . For the top of the pacifiers. I rolled out the fondant into a log, and then made the loop. I let them dry before I attached them to the cookie, so they would hold their shape.

To attach the pompoms to the hats, I used a little water.

Once again I used water to attach the pacifiers. Then using a food coloring pen, I made the baby's eyes and nose. There is nothing sweeter then a sleeping baby, unless of course it's a sleeping baby cookie.

I took some pink gel food coloring and hand painted on the cheeks. And there you have it, cuteness in a cookies.
Welcome to the world Fisher.

  1. These are so cute, Kris! We love them and appreciate all the work you put into them. I already took a picture of them, so that I'll always remember them even when they are gone (which unfortunately will probably be soon).
