I had the distinct honor and pleasure to be able to make Beautiful Baby Braden some cookies for his first birthday.
My BFF Laura gave me a napkin to work from. When I saw it I thought…how cute!
Then I looked a little closer and realized I was in trouble. I always freehand cookies… but here someone wanted something specific… what was I going to do????
This is what the napkins looked like.
And here is what I came up with.
I drew a monkey on a piece of cardstock, cut it out, then used that as a template to make the monkey cookies.
In the picture the blue looks a little 'off'… I sure hope it didn't look that 'off' next to the REAL napkins… I'll have to ask Laura!
The design is pretty simple, but I have never tried to replicate something like this before, so it was a big challenge for me. I am so thankful it was Laura who gave me the challenge! Even though I didn't get them quite right, I knew she would like me anyway. 🙂
And knowing me, I couldn't leave well enough alone, so I had to make some more cookies for sweet Braden~with writing on them. There is just something about a frosted cookie with no writing that makes me crazy!
But that will have to wait until Sunday. Or Monday.
I hope to have more pictures and stuff for you to look at! There is a lot to share… 🙂
