Molly's baby shower. . . .part 2

Alright, so we had "Bun in the Oven" cookies for my sister Molly's baby shower favors, but what for the dessert table?

The invitations to the shower were these:

So, I went with pickles and ice cream cookies!


I was nervous about pickles....I mean, how cute can pickle cookies be, really. But, you know what, I actually loved them!


My lovely assistant (read: husband) made another template for the pickle shape. See how the edges are a little rougher than if I had used a cookie cutter?


I'll let you in on a little secret....I CANNOT pipe straight and even criss-cross lines. Oh, believe me when I tell you, these pictures are of the BEST cones!

When my husband came to take a look at them, I was lamenting the fact that I can't pipe straight lines. He said, "No, you can't...but keep them that way...they're whimsical." Reason #487 why I love that man. ♥

You've been warned...if you purchase these through the shop, your cones will have lines that are, um, "whimsical."



Happy Baby, Molly! I can't wait to find out if we will have a new little niece or nephew!!!

  4. Those lines look fabulous to me. And how can you not love a guy who uses the word "whimsical"? The pickles are adorable. You could package those with the Christmas legend of the pickle, too. I'm sure you know it but just to save you time googling: “A very old Christmas eve tradition in Germany was to hide a pickle [ornament] deep in the branches of the family Christmas Tree. The parents hung the pickle last after all the other ornaments were in place. In the morning they knew the most observant child would receive an extra gift from St. Nicholas. The first adult who finds the pickle traditionally gets good luck for the whole year.”

    BTW, the mustache cookies are safely tucked into the freezer (ie. so I can resist them they smell so incredible) for Thanksgiving! Soon, very, very soon....come to Momma little mustache cookies.

  10. These are too cute! Where do you get your cutters? Do you hand cut a lot with patterns?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Sarah...I do every once in a while, usually when I think of a design at the last minute and there's not enough time to order :), or if I can't find the cutter I need or it's the wrong size.

  13. I love the pickles and ice cream! Such a cute idea.

    I craved things I hadn't had since I was a kid - orange soda, gummi bears, mac & cheese made with the orange powder, etc. And Quarter Pounders with cheese. Still eat those!

    I want to add your link to my Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby website. Is that okay?
    OR
    Do you have an official website where people can order cookies?

    I craved black olives with pasta during my first pregnancy, Baskin Robbins Chocolate Chip ice cream with my second!

  34. Wonderful job Bridget. Absolutely wonderful.

    I might actually have a hard time biting into the pickle cookies and tasting sweet cookie instead of sour pickle. :) Pickle juice cookies, anyone? I mean, they make pickle juice snocones, right?

    PS... you know I'm totally kidding about the pickle juice cookies, right? Right?

  35. Oh and with my first, the only thing I could stomach was a meatball sub from a little place downstairs from my office. I think I ate one of those a day (and sometimes nothing else) for several weeks during 1st trimester.

  36. They turned our fantastic and tasted yummy too! I craved Chick-fil-a sandwhiches when I was pregnant with Ike. I could have eaten them all day.

  39. Those are about the best cookies I have other seen, followed closely by the bun in the oven cookies.

    With my first baby, I also craved McDonald cheeseburgers! Could not get enough of them. This time around... nothing. I only have dislikes this time -- like coffee. BLECH.

  40. I craved sandwiches...either the der weinersnitzel ruben sandwich or a homemade tuna with pineapple and cheese melted on top. Needless to say I gained 13 pounds my 5th month with my first pregnancy.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Those are darling!! Now I want someone I know to have a baby.. you know, just as an excuse to make something that cute!

    ReplyDelete
