April Showers

In a very literal sense, we'll start the month off with a Baby Shower! Elephants must be a popular shower theme these days... I feel it was yesterday that I made these elephant baby shower cookies. When my client said the theme was elephants and I asked her to send me an image of the invitations. I was happily surprised when the elephants on the invitation looked almost exactly like the elephants I had made previously, minus the hearts for ears. So here they are again, round two of the baby shower elephant cookies! I have to say that I think the hearts for ears is the perfect little adorableness needed for any baby shower theme.

P.S. Be on the look out for an amazing post regarding the BEST birthday present a cookie girl could ask for! Yes, that's right, my birthday was this past Friday but I have been so busy celebrating and making cookies that I haven't had the chance to stop-in and tell you all about it, but soon, very soon! But of course, after April 15th..... I, the CPA, have yet to file my own taxes... one more cookie order to go and then I can sit down and file that bad boy.

I am a newcomer in decorating cookies, but did you first make the elephants and transferred it to the cookies later? And if yes, how do you make it stick to it? They look absolutely adorable!

Hi Marieke! So glad you stopped by! I am still pretty new with all of this too, you will catch on quickly I am sure!

Yes I made the elephants separate. This technique is called "Royal Icing Transfers" or sometimes just called RI transfers. I used parchment paper and then let the elephants complete dry and carefully peel them off.

Then I used a think flood icing, about 18-20 second icing, and then immediately place the elephant on and let it all dry. Wah-la! Done!

I hope that helps Marieke!
