Girl Baby Shower Cookies

I threw a baby shower for my friend Suzanne on Sunday, which meant I got to make sweet little cookies.

The baby girl dress cutter I made myself with the Design Your Own Cookie Cutter kit. The baby carriage I drew on cardboard and cut out of the dough—painstaking, but I wasn't good enough bending the tin to turn it into a cutter; after two tries, I gave up. The decorating of the cookies was all my own, except for the idea for the baby carriages—I had seen Ali Bee's gorgeous cookies, which were perfection, so I shamelessly borrowed (read: lovingly stole) the design from her. If you want the design for the baby dress or baby carriage, holler and I'll scan in my little cardboard drawings :)
