A Special Delivery to Welcome a Sweet Baby Boy!

In last night's post about our gardens, I promised you cookies...
Therefore, it's cookies you shall have!
You see, a friend at work asked if I might create cookies for a very
special baby shower she's hosting this weekend... So of course, I
said I would! When I asked what she had in mind, my friend said
dotted bow ties and anything else I thought might compliment them!
Now, it's my opinion, the most complimentary baby shower cookie
ever is Dani's onesie cookie! I love the seamless appearance of her
wet-on-wet icing technique and over-sized candy snaps too! I've found
that the trick to achieving perfect wet-on-wet icing designs is to ensure
the icing consistency of all the colors is exactly the same. I outline this
technique in detail within my Recipe and Decorating Tips Guide here
Of course, no baby shower cookie collection would be complete
without a coordinating umbrella! After all, April showers bring...
May flowers! Which is exactly what Martha gives us with her May
issue of Living! I was beyond delighted to find Martha's May issue
waiting for me when I arrived home this evening - Isn't it beautiful?!
I cannot wait for the weekend! Now that my baby shower cookies are
packaged up for delivery tomorrow, I'll have plenty of time to read!
I hope this Spring weekend is especially sweet for you too!


  1. Great cookies Janet! Hope that the shower goes really well. xx

  2. Dear Janet, my new best friend,

    I absolutely love these, they are adorable, ALMOST too cute to eat. Every mommy-to-be should be so lucky to have these at her shower. I received the cookie cutters that I won on your site this week and they are AWESOME!! The quality is wonderful and I know they will be so much fun to use. I still can't believe that I won!!
    You are the best, Toodles, Barbi

  3. You do the BEST onesie cookie's in all of cookie land! These and the bow ties are to die for!
    Love, love, love that blue polk-a-dot ribbon too!
