Are more babies born in the spring? That is the question of the day. Two of my four were born in the spring. The other two were born in the winter. So from my experience, it’s half and half, but we sure sell more baby cookie cutters in the spring than we do in the winter. Maybe it’s just because we get more excited about throwing showers and parties in the spring and summer than we do in the winter with all the other holidays. Maybe we just get in party overload mode in the winter.
Well, whatever the reason, ’tis the season for baby cookies! (I’m thinking spring because we got MORE snow last night. Sigh.)
Have you noticed that I’ve been using a lot of Wilton cookie cutter sets for my blog posts? I carry a lot of their cutter sets in my store, and I’ve been meaning to get some example pictures up for them for a long time. So I grabbed a big stack of sets and got to baking. That’s why you’re seeing a pattern. These baby cookies were made with the Wilton Baby Cookie Cutter Set:
They were fun! I’ll start with my least favorite first. The rocking horses. Sometimes I can do them, and sometimes I can’t. This decorating session turned out to be a “not-as-cute” day.
I don’t know. Do you put faces on rocking horses? And if so, how? Maybe I’m just not a horse person.
Next are the baby buggies.
And the teddy bears:
So the question here: How far apart do you put the eyes? I wasn’t sure, so I did 3 different distances. (By the way, I used black sugar pearls for the eyes on these. I really like using those for eyes.) I think I liked the blue one the best. Not too close, not too far apart.
And last, but not least, the onesies:
Awww. Baby stuff is just so cute and fun. We have a onesie cookie decorating card if you’re interested in more info on how to do some cute piped embellishments for onesies.
So we have the pink group:
The blue group:
And a mixed-color group:
