All-Star Baby Shower Cookies!

(fyi....this post was originally titled "How to give a cookie lady a heart attack")

(part one...)

My niece Katie recently co-hosted a baby shower for one of her best girlfriends.

They knew the Mommy-to-Be was having a boy and loves sports so the 
party theme was really easy to choose.

Katie said the parents love the Michael Jordan logo, 
so I did my best to incorporate that without making it too obvious.

I used a projector and a teeny-tiny little liner brush 
to paint the logo on using black food coloring mixed with a little clear alcohol.

Of course, it's not a shower without party favors...

I love those pretzel bags for tying up mini cookies!

A few days before I needed to ship these,
 I gave Katie a call to get a final head count for the favors and hear how the planning was going.

This is when things got a bit......interesting.

"Hi Katie!  How are you??"

"Hi Aunt Elizabeth, I'm good!  Just busy with work and the party planning."

"Well, I won't keep you...I'm just calling to double check the head count and confirm the details...."

(then there was a lot of back and forth....45 people...baby's name is Elijah....Mom is Robbie...etc.)

"I just saw the balloons my friend ordered for the party.  
They're really cute and match the plates and napkins..."

"How fun! Are they giant sports balls or did she find a Michael Jordan balloon?"

"No....they're like a jungle safari type print....."


"They're...so it's...wait...what about...um...WHAT!!!!"

  3. You did a beautiful job on them! Hope you get to use these cookies for the shower! I really need to get me a KopyKake, but I'm scared I won't use it. But I know in my head I will, I hope that makes sense to you ..... lol

  4. Oh dear God! Gorgeous cookies, but I'm trying to decide if you're a genius or just plain cruel for keeping us in suspense on this one! LOL
    So hope it all turned out ok!

  5. Oh my gosh, your story isn't sounding too good so far...but these cookies are gorgeous! Looking forward to hearing the rest of the story!

  6. Here is a hint that I started: I make samples of the cookies, then give to clients before actually making them. This worked out so good that original order was for 50 cookies, but they loved the cookies so much that they increased their order to 100 cookies! Ahh took me 7 days to complete the cookies. LOL here is the kicker, they were for a Jungke Safari Theme Baby Theme Shower! Can't wait to see how your story ends.

  7. Waiting for the continuation!!! Awesome cookies by the way. I know plenty of people that would love Jordan logos on their cookies.
