Sweet, Sweet Babies!

A good friend of mine is about to be a Grandma for the first time.  Recently, she was helping to host a baby shower for her daughter-in-law and asked me to make cookies for the occasion.  I was thrilled and had a "sweet time" making and decorating the baby cookies!  

Since the new Mom and Dad love to travel, the "theme" of the baby shower was based on the Dr. Seuss book, "The Places You Go".  I was tempted to make cookies with the characters from the book, but decided that I better stick with babies.  But, I thought that a set of baby foot prints depicted a baby on the go.  These are baby toes that you really can nibble!

 I made a few baby carriages, you know, "baby transportation!"  Of course, I had to make a few rattles, to keep those babies happy while they are on the road.

 Onesies are a necessity for all babies, and since we don't know the new baby's gender, I tried to cover all the bases.

 What's a baby shower without a few baby chicks? ( a bit of a stretch, but I wanted to make the chicks!)

 More Onesies...MTU- Michigan Technological University the baby's  father's Alma Mater, Higgins Lake- a location dear to the baby's mother, and Frick, the baby to be's last name!

 Onward HO!

 Never enough Onesies!

 And of course the babies.....

And more babies...(thanks to

 There he/she goes....

 I decorated a cookie shaped like the state of Michigan and put a heart where the baby will want to travel...Grandma's and Grandpa's, Aunt Julie's, Camp Westminster.....

 Talented babies!

 The cookies disappeared quickly and were a fun addition to the delicious buffet!

There he/she goes again!!

Hope you are all have a nice is a beautiful spring day here..brisk but sunny!  Looking for my first crocus sighting!  


  1. Absolutely fantastic looking cookies.. I would have a hard time biting them! I couldn't be that cruel!... I would have to keep licking them to make 'em disappear!

  2. What wonderful cookies. You are very talented. These are such a cute way to get everyone in the spirit of welcoming the baby. Thanks for sharing. They are almost too cute to eat but I bet they were delicious!
