Spring Babies!!

Posted by Anne Yorks on Saturday, April 14, 2012

I think it is the age that I'm at, but there seems to be a baby explosion going on. Within my group of friends (facebook, neighborhood, and friendy-friends), I know of more than 35 babies that have been born within the last 9 months. I am one of the 35. I have a 7-month-old. I don't know that many people...so goodness, it's a lot of babies! I guess this terrible economy gives us few options on a limited budget, huh? ; )

My customers are having lots of babies too!! I do a lot of onesies, carriages, and rattles...so I don't post all those orders because it gets repetitive. But, here are a few highlights of custom orders. Sorry for the quality of the photos...these were a quick turn around and so I just snapped a few cell phone pics. I don't Instagram...so this is what you get.

This set of baby girl cookies coordinated with a beautiful pink flower room. The design on the onesies was actually inspired by the lamp in the the baby's nursery.


The crib quilt was absolutely adorable. So I matched these flowers and rattles to that blanket. I loved the colors and the cheery design. It was also fun to do a new version of a rattle cookie.


Here is my good ole standby, the polka dot carriage. This little cookie has been with me since the beginning. I could make her in my sleep, I think.


Here's the group together. Fun! Fun!


Here's a pic from the customer. I love getting cookie photos from the client. It shows they are happy and it shows that it all arrived in one piece!

Then, I was invited to a small shower for one of my friends. She is having her third baby, so it was more of a 'girls night out' theme. I decided against a cutesy idea and went with a more modern design. Plus, I made them CHOCOLATE. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Mmmmm.

This cookie might fall into the 'it was cool to do it once, but probably won't do it again' category. Piping the words alone took 20 minutes per cookie. This did not include any time for mixing, baking, chilling, coloring, or packing. The mom-to-be loved it, though. And that is all that matters!

You'll have to check back on Monday. I have a special project that I will be sharing that I did as part of a collaborative cookie collection with a few cookie friends. It was super fun to make and I think you'll like it too! I'll try to get it up on Monday afternoon.

Have a sweet rest of your weekend!
