Pink, Orange & Green Baby Shower Cookies

Here's a look at some cookies I recently made for baby shower favors. My sister's good friend is expecting her first baby on Dec 5th, a little girl. They picked out some fun fabrics with stripes and polka dots for the nursery in pinks, orange and green so we thought it would be fun to decorate cookies to fit the color scheme.

Baby shower cookies are some of my favorites to decorate so of course I documented the process with lots of pictures....

This was by far the biggest batch of cookies I have ever decorated at one time.
40 onesies....40 bottles...40 monograms for baby Harper
5 1/2 hours later my hand was very cramped after all that piping...

but I was thrilled with how they turned out!

The cookies were carefully packaged and wrapped in layers of bubble wrap to be shipped 725 miles to KY for the shower! Two huge boxes of cookies later I dropped them off at the post office and said a few prayers for the safe journey of these cookies! As it turns out all but 2 arrived safely...and the 2 that cracked my sister was happy to sample so it all worked out in the end!

The mother to be loved the cookies and so did all the shower guests! Congratulations Ashley on your little girl that is on the way!


  1. Yay!!! I'm so honored. The cookies were so delicious and a huge hit. Somehow the extras mysteriously disappeared before I could hoard them for Harper and I. Thanks so much for all your time and dedication to baking, especially for me!

  2. Love these! I agree, baby themed cakes and cookies are so much fun! And I'm so glad you mentioned that you shipped them. My cousin is having a baby shower (for her first) at the end of the month and I can't be there. I was thinking about shipping some so I might ask for some shipping tips!

  3. Adorable! I love all the onesies.
