I just got off the telephone with my step-daughter. She just got home from a baby shower for her best friend from college. Her friend moved out of state and traveled back to FL for her shower. I offered to make her cookies. I decided to make an arrangement and a few dozen extra, figuring she'd want to serve them at the shower as favors. I have a little confession here, I have been dying to do baby cookies. Plus, my step-daughter and her hubby have the baby itch, if you know what I mean. Anyway, It was great practice for me.
When she arrived with cookies, she reports that all the ladies gathered around and oohed and aahed over them like it was a wedding cake.
Her friend called her when she got home. She said after the shower there were about 8 or 10 ladies sitting around. After ate, they went looking for cookies. They were all gone, so they all went around the room looking under wrapping paper and among gifts hoping to find a cookie. When one would find one, they would scream out, "I found one!" She said it was hysterical. She said that they all would sit around breaking pieces off the stray cookies and passing it around to share. She said that they were a hit!
Here are some pics of my finished cookies and the bouquet.
