Argyle Onesie Baby Shower Cookies

Onesie Baby Shower Cookies |

Overwhelmed by cuteness, I searched the web in pursuit of the perfect baby shower favors for my little sister’s upcoming jungle baby shower. Of course, homemade cookies and cake pops were in the running from the beginning! After browsing through endless adorable little knick-knacks that could be handed out as baby shower favors, I decided to make my favorite sugar cookies in the shape of adorable onesies decorated with my favorite royal icing.

In addition to the fact that you will be saying “aaaawwwwww…” out loud every five minutes while you are making them, the great thing about onesie baby shower cookies is that you have endless options for decorating. You can use any pattern and any color combination you can come up with.

My sister’s baby shower was a jungle theme featuring the colors blue and green. I used royal icing transfers to add monkeys and lions to the onesie cookies and decorated them with different combinations of patterns and colors to match. Today, I’m excited to share with you how I made my favorite onesie cookies with an argyle pattern. Substitute the colors on your baby shower cookies to match the theme of the party you are hosting/attending.

Supplies for Onesie Baby Shower Cookies

To make onesie baby shower cookies, you will need:

How To Make Onesie Cookies with an Argyle Pattern

  1. Start by marking the location of the tops, sides, and bottoms of the diamonds in the argyle pattern. Do this by making tiny dots with your orange royal icing. Immediately move on to Step #2.
  2. Connect the dots with your orange royal icing so that you have three diamonds next to each other and touching. Immediately move on to Step #3.
  3. Flood the diamond shapes with orange royal icing. While the orange icing is still wet, draw an “X” in each diamond with blue royal icing. Using this wet-on-wet technique ensures that the blue icing is flush with the orange, creating a smooth surface. Complete Steps #1 – 3 for all cookies. Set the onesie cookies aside to let the icing dry for at least 20 minutes.
  4. Outline and immediately flood the onesie shape with your green royal icing. While the green icing is wet, use a pair of tweezers (clean and used for baking only) to place three orange confetti sprinkles on the bottom of the onesie as buttons. If you are using royal icing transfers on your onesie cookies, place them onto the wet green royal icing. Complete Step #4 for all cookies. Set the onesie cookies aside to let the icing dry for at least 20 minutes.
  5. Finish off the onesie cookies by drawing an outline with your orange royal icing. Complete this step for all cookies and set them aside to completely dry before stacking or packaging, preferably overnight.

      Thanks, Mike! How have I not seen your blog before? Your cookies are so fun! I love the Star Wars set. And your standing Teddy Ruxpin cookies are too cool. I love the details you included on the back! Needless to say, I’m your newest fan and follower! P.S. Your Twitter tagline is perfect “Making cookie dreams into royal icing realities…”

  3. I love these cookies – especially the monkey face. I am resolute this year to learn to make pretty and tasty sugar cookies so I will be accessing your site (beyond being a new follower) many many times. Thank you for the tutorials – some people say they aren’t needed because “how could you not know this or that”? Well, I’m here to tell you, that there a so many things I don’t know – they didn’t teach me that in college so I appreciate your painstaking pix! KK

    OK, Janine…I am not hesitating. This post is one of my features next week. You are so talented. My niece is a pastry chef and she is having a “sprinkle” baby shower for the upcoming birth of her second little child. I have to share this with her. She might make them for the sprinkle! :)
