Elephant Themed Baby Girl Shower Decorated Cookie Collection

I'd just like to say that this "being a GRAMMY" phenomenon is incredibly wonderful.
My second grandchild arrived late this spring.....HER name is Emmy Kate.  πŸ’—


I already LOVE to create cookies for others, but when it's for my grandchildren, it is the BEST.
Just knowing that some day Emmy will see the photos of these cookies and delight in the idea that she is so incredibly loved by her Grammy.......brings me pure joy.
Plus, I love to spoil those around me with cookies.
And baking/decorating is definitely my love language. :)

The  baby shower had an elephant theme......so creating cute elephants and lots of other baby cookies to match was super fun.

Welcome Emmaline Kate!
We think you're awesome...... πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

Ellie the Elephant Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

When I was approached about contributing an animal shape for Cookie Cutters for Charity, I immediately knew I wanted to do an elephant. My daughter-in-law was using elephants to decorate for our second grandchild arriving in May 2017. I had already planned to make some cute elephant cookies for the baby shower. So this was the perfect chance to come up with a cute shape for both the shower and the charity event. It was a win win for both!

The entire collection of animal cutters from a host of awesome decorators is now available HERE. There are 17 different shapes and a beautiful booklet sharing about each decorator and their contribution. 

100% of the profits from the sale of these cutters goes toward the Helping Hands, Inc ministry in India which teaches underprivileged women some professional baking/decorating skills for a job. What a blessed ministry!

Animal Cookie Cutter Set for Charity

Ellie the Elephant (which is not an original name.....but since my granddaughter is Emmy, it fit) was born.

She's pretty easy to decorate. Just outline and flood the entire shape in the color glaze of your choice. Add a wet-on-wet pattern if desired. Allow it to dry for about 1 hour before adding a second layer for the head, ears, and trunk. (see photos below)

While the second layer is still wet, add two black pearls for her eyes.

And if you are so inclined, add stitch marks and eyebrows with a black edible food color marker.

WaterColor Decorated Cookies

Ever since I was in The Painted Box (Angela Nino)'s class at CookieCon2017 I've been itching to do some "watercolor" designs on cookies. The fact that she uses my glaze recipe for her "canvas" means I've got a head start.

Angela was gracious to make a YouTube video about how she creates her "watercolors paints" for cookies. After watching it a few times, I quickly purchased some glass stopper bottles, strainer, glass funnel, half pint mason jars, and some EverClear. 

Angela makes it look super easy. I have no idea what I'm doing when I pick up a paintbrush, so these look like a child painted them. But thankfully, watercolors are pretty forgiving. Even though these are pretty rough.....they were still super fun to create and it just makes me want to practice and improve my technique. :)

Thank you, Angela, for sharing your beautiful art with all of us! 

Even though this photo was not taken with the cookies featured in this blog post, I wanted you to see the set-up I used to create my watercolored cookies. Angela's YouTube video explains how to make the bottles of color.
