Who doesn’t love a cookie? We had a blast creating these baby shower cookies. A bib, a onesie, and a duck make a nice trio. Run and royal icing transform simple cookie cutters and patterns to well known images. We tried a new product with this batch of cookies, CK Products Royal & Picture Icing. It is a lovely product that is quick to mix, set, and very enjoyable to use. The outlines set up quickly and the run can be altered as needed without breaking down into an unusable mixture. Another benefit was a simple one package creation that didn’t require multiple bags of sugar and additions. When you don’t have the time and need a product that you can go to for success, we highly recommend it.

Yummy cookies for the new parents.
