Rock n’ Roll Baby Onesie Cookies

Rock n Roll Onesie Cookies

I had a really fun order this week for a baby shower. A fellow food blogger from Pittsburgh, Lauren of Burghilicious (check her out – great blog!), was helping to plan a coworker’s baby shower and wanted to order cookies for the event. The twist was that this wasn’t your stereotypical baby shower. The mom-to-be plays guitar in a rock band and didn’t want any frilly, pastel-y, typical baby stuff. The theme of the shower was “Rock n’ Roll Baby” and Lauren asked that I create some onesie cookies to go with the theme. I took rock ‘n roll and ran with it. I created six different designs:

♦  “The future of Rock”

♦  “Rock n’ Roll baby”

♦  “Rockstar”

♦  “Mommy Rocks!”

♦  “Let’s Rock” (with a guitar)

♦  “Born to Rock” (with a guitar)

Since the baby is going to be a boy and they wanted a more “hip” theme to the baby shower, I went with masculine colors – white, black, , grey, blue, and deep purple.

  30. Avanika (Yumsilicious Bakes) on April 27, 2010 at 9:00 am

    Oh adorable!! Did you free-hand the designs, or use stencils?


    • Michelle on April 27th, 2010 at 12:31 pm

      Hi Avanika,

      For the star and the guitar, I printed out outlines that I found online and that I had sized to what I wanted on the cookie. I laid the paper over the cookie for placement and lightly traced over the outline with a toothpick so there was a slight indentation on the cookie. I then went over that in the icing.


  31. Brad on April 27, 2010 at 9:15 am

    HaHa those are great! What a cool idea.


  32. Skylar on April 27, 2010 at 9:28 am

    are these cookies for sale/ order??? I would need an order for January 2012



  46. Sandra on October 28, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    Really great! Did you use buttercream icing for the writing or royal icing? Do you ever have the trouble with the black lettering bleeding to the white underneath?


    • Michelle on October 31st, 2011 at 12:54 pm

      I used royal icing. The bleeding has happened, usually if my black is too thin (too much water). I try to get the icing used for details a good balance between just thin enough to pipe, but stiff enough so it doesn’t bleed.


  47. Sandra on October 28, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    These are really creative! I am trying my hand at making some and I am having trouble with black lettering bleeding into the white underneath. I waited for white to dry before adding the lettering. Did you use buttercream for the lettering or royal icing?
