Baby Shower Cookie Platter Cutter Set
New to the shop is this baby onesie & bottle cookie platter cutter set. This set includes 3 cookie cutters: a baby onesie, a baby bottle, and a center circle. You can purchase all 3 cookie cutters together, or as a 2-piece without the circle cutter.
There are two sizes available. When arranged as a platter, as shown in the example picture, the platter measures:
LARGE- 12 inches in diameter.
SMALL- 9 inches in diameter.
For this tutorial, I'll be decorating the LARGE size.
Template for the Baby Shower Cookie Platter
To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template of the new baby shower platter design.
You can download these cookie templates HERE.
If you have a Kopykake or Pico projector, just print it out (or pull it up on your mobile device) and you are good to go. For those without a projector, follow the suggested steps below by tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.
The Cookie Decorating Process
For the colors used for these baby shower cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:
- Dark Green royal icing (I mixed Americolor Wedgewood with Americolor Ivory and a tiny touch of Americolor Super Black.)
- Light Green icing (I mixed a little of the dark green icing above with fresh icing.)
- Yellow icing ( used Americolor Egg Yellow but mixed in a tiny amount of the green icing above.)
- Brown Icing (I used Rainbow Dust Chestnut.)
- White icing (I used Americolor Bright White.)
Baby Onesie Cookie
Let's start with the baby onesie cookie. Begin by outlining the edge of the cookie including the arm sleeve details. Let this icing set (about 10 mins).
Then flood in the area with green icing.
Finish the cookie by adding the center button detail, as shown.
Baby Bottle Cookie
The the baby bottle cookie, begin by filling in the middle section. Let that icing set.
Then fill in the top tip and bottom bottle sections. Let this icing dry.
To finish this cookie, outline the middle section, as shown. Add the measuring line details.
Center Message Cookie
For the final, center message cookie, begin by flooding the entire cookie with dark green icing. Let this icing dry completely.
In the shop is a new Oh Baby cookie stencil you can use for the center message. Just swipe thick white royal icing over it to apply it to the cookie. The video below better illustrates how I did this.
Baby Shower Cookie Platter Video Tutorial
The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together below.
Here's the final baby shower cookie platter all assembled. To create this entire platter required 11 cookies-- 5 onesies, 5 bottles, and 1 center circle cookie.
This is the large, 12" version. For the tray it's on, I like to use the 12" pizza pans from Dollar Tree. They are cheap and sturdy for transporting around.
