Smiling Cupcakes

Photobucket
If you read my blog often, you know that I have a small baby girl. I am not only having a lot of fun with a 4 month baby, but I am also enjoying all the designs inspiration that I can get for cakes and cookies  from her little outfits. Everything is so cute, and one of these days I will bombard you with a week of full baby inspired sweets.

I made these cookies inspired by one of her bibs, I figure I could "portrait" myself and my girls...

but then I figure I had to put my husband in the designs also, although, my husband doesn't have a mustache. It seems that this was the most appropriate way to portrait a cupcakes in a male version.

Then, I couldn't help myself and I had to make a few more

To make the cookies, I used these cupcake cookie cutters that I got at Bake it Pretty a long time ago.


I didn't make a tutorial for the first set of cookies, I was in a rush to enter this cookie cutter contest. Since Spring is around the corner, I figure I could use some extra income to help us get some things for the girls. After having heart palpitations finding out that Summer Camp for Cami is $2,200 for 10 weeks, I haven't been feeling like myself.
Of course, the Summer Camp thing has nothing to do with this cookies, I am just very frustrated and I have to let it out.

Back to the cookies...

You will bake, outline and flood the cookies.
Let them dry overnight.

For the first set of cookies: I used tip #1 to do the stitching inside the cupcakes swirl. For the cheeks I used tip #3 with stiff icing.

For the second set of cookies:

.Tip #1 for the stitching
.Apply pink luster dust for the cheeks with a small brush. 




.Use an edible food writer to draw the smiling mouth,eyes and eyelashes

how completely whimsical with a side of SUPER CUTE. I love these colors..so soft and pretty. I too have a little girl (always will be my baby) but now she is almost 8 - I still am inspired by all things girly girl although she tells me that she is "part tomboy and party girly girl"..ok, good to know!

Anything to do with babies can provide endless inspiration for cookie and cake designs and these are very cute. Love that your husband got some representation in these cookies.
