Under the Sea Cookies.

Recently, I got the opportunity to make some truly adorable cookies! The baby shower theme was focused around Carter’s cute nursery line, “Under the Sea,” and I got to translate that into sweet cookies. 🙂

"Under the Sea"-themed cookies, made to custom-match nursery bedding from Carter's.

I mean, how can you not LOVE this little guy?!

For the shower, my customer needed both take-home favors and cookies for munching on at the event. We decided that the sea creature characters would make great favors, so I made fewer of those. I made a large batch of smaller (2.5″ size) seashells, and my customer graciously allowed me carte blanche in how I decorated them. I chose to use the colors from the rest of our theme, creating a very special, bright & fun seashell assortment!

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?
