Classic Baby Shower Cookies

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies

I whipped up some cookies for a baby shower this week, and since a few of them are new designs, I wanted to share them with you! These were done for a fairly typical baby shower (more traditional than the last baby shower set I did – remember the Rock n’ Roll Onesies?) and will be given as the favors. The hostess wanted typical baby-type cookies, such as onesies and a rocking horse, and I also did rubber duckies and a baby carriage. The theme was neutral, with pastel colors, so I incorporated that into the cookies, using yellows, greens, pinks and purples.

I have done traditional onesie cookies before, and I think they are one of my favorite cookies to decorate. Maybe it’s the thought of chubby little legs hanging out of the bottom? :)  I have to say, though, that I fell in love with all of the others I made this time around. The detail on the baby carriage and rocking horse I especially loved working on. And that rubber ducky is just so darn cute!

  27. Melanie on May 12, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    Thank you, Michelle! Beautiful effect…I’m going to check out that tut now…thanks much.


  28. Fuji Mama on May 12, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Um, ok, next time I have a baby, will you come and do my baby shower? :)


  29. Sonya @ baby shower favors on May 12, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    These cookies are adorable. They would make great party favors. You can wrap them in plastic wrap and tie them with a personalized ribbon.


  30. Belinda @zomppa on May 12, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Those are PRECIOUS!!

  38. Arden Ziemski on May 27, 2010 at 8:22 am

    Damn, cool website. I actually came across this on Bing, and I am really happy I did. I will definately be returning here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just absorbing as much info as I can at the moment.

    Thank You

    Wonderful cookies… Did you use the cookie cutter for the shapes or you cut it manually?


    • Michelle on June 9th, 2011 at 9:29 am

      Thank you Jay! I use cookie cutters – no way I could do that free-hand!


  42. amanda martin on September 22, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    what tips would you suggest me use to decorate these same cookies im doing them for my baby shower also im going to try your royal icing too see how they turn out.(:


  43. sarah on April 8, 2014 at 6:03 pm

    I need to make 200 over-sized duckie cookies– approx. the size of the palm of my hand. Probably double the size of yours. Do you think your sugar cookie recipe would do well with big cookies? It seems the best recipe I have found so far. SUPER DELICIOUS! I appreciate your tutorial on royal icing as well,Thanks! (Many bloggers have posted the photos of their cookies sans the other information to replicate.)


    • Michelle on April 9th, 2014 at 9:43 pm

      Hi Sarah, I’ve used that recipe to make larger sized cookies and haven’t had an issue. I hope that helps!


  44. Shannon J. Perkins on September 1, 2014 at 1:30 am

    These classic baby shower cookies are one of my favorite things when I am attending a baby shower because they are really good and I love their cuteness. These are really great!
