Every so often, I get a chance to “re-do” some cookies I’ve made in the past. These Pooh’s 1st Birthday cookies are from just that scenario.
They’re not terribly fancy or difficult. Just light, easy colors & a very recognizable face. Add in a few bees for fun, too!
Just for kicks, here’s a look back to my first Pooh cookies, from over 3 years ago:
Sometimes, a customer just comes to you with some simple ideas & colors, and you get to choose exactly how you’re going to execute the theme into cookies.
And then it turns out DARLING!
Ashley wanted some cookies for her brand-new nephew who was born a bit early. Since his mama didn’t have time for a baby shower before his birth, Ashley helped to throw a special “Meet & Greet” for the little man. She just wanted a few things represented, as follows:
- muted yellow & dark gray
- bow ties
- babies wearing a bow tie
- baby’s name & birthdate
- “welcome little man”
- a bit of “circus font”>
All the rest was up to me!
I had an idea for little bald baby head wearing a bow tie… but I didn’t have a cutter for it! And because I wanted to make 16 of them, I really didn’t want to hand-cut the shape, either. So, I took a few moments to look at my cutter stash, and I came up with 3 cutters that I decided would work to “make” the shape I wanted. See?
