Cookie Queens Royal Baby Shower
A special miracle occurred in the cookie world last week. Two cookie bloggers that I truly admire, Georganne of LilaLoa and Callye of Sweet Sugarbelle, each gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Callye and Georganne are so admired and highly regarded as leaders and teachers in the cookie community. I guess you could say two princesses were born from these two cookie queens.
To commemorate this wonderful occasion, a group of cookiers, including myself, wanted to honor Callye and Georganne in a way they both could appreciate... through cookies! A royal baby shower themed collaboration seemed appropriate for these two cookie queens.
For my contribution, I wanted to see if I could combine the themes of cookie baking, infants, and queens. It just so happened my friend, Steve of Scarillo, was visiting me at the time I was planning out ideas for this collaboration. He helped me brainstorm and sketch out a design that combined the three themes I was going for. Our main source of inspiration was the queens from a deck of playing cards.
The idea was to use cookie baking supplies in the place of the suits in a deck of cards. In the pink cookie above, hopefully you can tell the suit of hearts is a heart-shaped cookie cutter. While in the purple picture below, a icing bag is in the shape of a spade.
Each little princess is also depicted ruling with their toy of choice: a rolling pin and a whisk. It's never too early to follow in your mom's footsteps.
Now, you are in for a royal treat. Below are all the wonderful royal baby shower ideas from the other fourteen contributors. I am so honored to be a part of this collaboration of creative cookiers showing our appreciation for two of our own.

Congratulations, Callye and Georganne!
