First off I made the shower favours. These are sour cream containers and are easy to make once you practice. All you need is some card stock, some glue and a paper crimper. HERE is a link to some instructions. I used glue instead of the sticky strip as I found that easier for me but it is a little messier as it sometimes oozes out and gets on your crimper...a wet paper towel takes care of that. Inside are treats of Wilton baby feet candy and I made sure that there were 10 in each, 2 of all 5 colours.

Crimper ~ Dollar Store
I tried something new in my baking. In one of our day trips this Spring I had found an adorable baby bottle cookie cutter and I knew I wanted to make them for the shower but I wasn't sure how to decorate them. I talked to our Wilton cake decorating instructor at work and she said to use royal icing and ice them that way. I made the royal icing and my original plan was to outline and "flood" in the colour but since I ran out of time and never had a trial run the "flooding" just was not working so outlines it was. I think they turned out cute!! Definitely not perfect, but they all went pretty fast.
As always, thanks for coming by to visit today. Come back tomorrow for part 2 of baby shower things.
Have a great day and happy crafting.
