Baby-shower-cookiesWhether you are celebrating a baby’s 1st birthday, holding a naming ceremony, or having a baby shower, we think these adorable biscuits will be a sure hit.

The recipe for these vanilla cookies are the same as the ones we used for our ‘Cookie Love’ post a few months ago (click here to get the recipe). The recipe is a good base for creating a variety of different cookie shapes, then you can decorate them at will. We would love to see your creative pieces too!

Your first step is to make your cookies. Want the same cutters as we’ve used? Click on the link below.

Polka dot icing

To decorate your cookies with polka dots, pipe an outline of icing around the edge of the cookies first, to keep the icing from flowing over the sides. Then fill the centre immediately with the same colour icing.

If you decide to use a different colour for the filling, let the outline dry for a few minutes first.

As soon as the cookie is filled and the icing sitting flat, drop small dots of contrasting coloured icing onto the cookies.

Yellow ducklings

To make the little yellow ducklings, use a rubber mould. We recommend making the ducklings ahead of time so that they are ready to use when you come to decorate your cookies.

A few hints for using a mould to create your ducks

  • Use fondant icing and knead it in your hand to soften. Add a small amount of food colouring (paste works best) and knead this into the fondant until you get your desired colour.
  • Dust your mould with icing (confectionary) sugar before pressing small pieces of fondant into the mould. It is better to add a little at a time rather than over-fill the mould. This will give a cleaner edge. Rub any excess off with your finger in a smooth round motion. Again, use a little icing (confectionary) sugar when you do.
  • Place in the fridge for 5 minutes to allow the icing to harden slightly, then pop your duck out of the mould.
