Peeking Baby Cookies (Contest Closed!)

filed under: Sugar Cookies on January 7, 2011

I was trying to be a tease.

The whole point of these cookies is to tease.

I wanted to make you guess what the sex of the baby is… but then I was so impatient and just could not keep a secret that I posted it on my mommy blog.

So please, dont go over there and find out the answer.  It would ruin all the fun!

But not really.


In honor of our soon to be addition (I am 28 weeks now!) I wanted to give YOU a new addition.

No, not my baby.

Yes, some of my cookies!

You are so smart.


More on that in a sec.

I made some cupcakes too!




I love those little fingers gripping the edge of our little cupcake.

Reminds me of some cute sneaky kids I know. Certainly not my own! *cough*

These cookies/cupcakes could not have been easier to make!  My only MUST DO tip is: Use a REALLY thick icing consistency on the little fingers.

Otherwise they will run together and just be blob hands.  And who wants a baby with blob hands?

Here is how to enter to win ONE DOZEN decorated sugar cookies!

Leave a comment on this post answering the question:

What do you think I am having, a boy or girl?  And if by chance, you were to guess boy for some random reason, can you please also suggest some names? Thank you.

Of course, you do not need to be right to win.

All you need is a valid email.  Also, I can only ship cookies to a US address.  Sorry!

As if I havent already given enough hints as it is, here is one more. 🙂

I will select two winners!

Good luck!


Quite possible the BEST and most complete list of boy baby names I have EVER come across!  You guys are awesome!!  I think one or two of you even guessed the name that I have been pondering!

Anywho… here are the winners!

Boy! Congratulations 🙂 If you’re feeling adventurous, I suggest Mohan. It means “charming” in Hindi.

I’m guessing a boy :), not that you gave it away or anything :D. What about Ethan or Daniel? Or Mark? Sam? Ok, I’m not so good at picking names haha.

    Wow. Your food looks just amazing. We’d love to see your stuff posted at!

  • Atousa says:

    Congratulations!! I suggest Brayden, and not just because it’s my beautiful sons name 🙂

  • Lisa G. says:

    I might be reading too much into your last hint, but are you having twins?! If so, congrats! If not, congrats anyway! 😀 I will suggest a couple boys’ names just in case (I think it would be funny if you were having a boy *and* a girl and didn’t need any suggestions for a girl’s name only because you already had one picked out). But anyway, I like Daniel, Matthew, Michael, Mark, James, and David (I’m a fan of classic names so my suggestions would probably sound boring to some, heh). Mainly I just love a chance to win some of your cookies! Congrats again! 🙂

  • Nicole/navygreen says:

    I know it’s a boy already, and my vote is for Milo. Then next time, get yourself an Otis, and you’re set. 😉

  • Mima says:

    I wish it’s a GIRL :O)
    In case is a boy… I like Mark, Caleb or Justin

  • Rachael says:

    A BOY named Hudson! That’s for me.

  • Jeanette Ashley says:

    I’m guess a boy and I love the name Wayne or Harry.

  • Danielle says:

    This is my first time commenting and I just want you to know that I love your blog. My mom is a professional wedding cake designer and I….I could barley ice a cupcake. I love to bake most of all when Im stressed out. And I always go to your site. Reading your blog always brightens my day.
    Corny I know. Im just that way.
    I suggest Phoenix. Mostly bc its my sons name and I have always gotten great comments on it. His middle name is James so we could call him PJ. But we never have.
    Thanks and good luck!

    Thank you so much for this post. I found it really useful. I love the look of your blog btw!

  • Jana says:

    Ok HI first of all!! And congrats!! 🙂 Where have I been? well my computer crashed and I lost you. Of course it would’ve been super easy to Google you but I “lost” you in my brain…like totally forgot that I used to read here and i am mommy EVERY DAY. Duh. So I found you again and have a baby naming tip…We had boy #5 in Sept and had a unique naming experience (for us). We have ALWAYS picked a name of each gender early on and stuck with it. This time, we picked the boy name we had with our first girl but never ended up using and thought we were done. Only a week or so before baby came (we still didn’t know gender), I just *knew* this isn’t the “one.” But when baby was 5 days old and it was time to let our pastor announce to church we had a baby, we didn’t want to look totally ridiculous and not have a name still. So that morning, we sat down with our kids and new baby. And my hubs said the 5 names we had narrowed it down to (3 biblical names, 2 scandanavian names, since our other kids are a mix of those). When he said “Elijah” our 5 day old son opened his eyes and looked at his dad. He chose his name. Worked for us. 🙂
    Yes, we are that crazy. Or lazy. We have 7 kids 12 and under, our brain cells are depleted. Totally. Which is why I lost you. So glad I’m back…aren’t you? don’t answer that 😛
