It’s the first day of the work week and we’re giving you a run down of weekend events. As I sit here with the morning sun on my face and think how far I’ve come and how blessed I am to have clients who give me such creative freedom I just want to stay thank you to all of you out there. I haven’t always had the life I dreamed so I stepped out there and decided to create it! Decorating cookies wasn’t my initial business focus it is something I evolved into over the years. Now that I have found it I never want to let it go! With each order that comes my way I am grateful and thankful you choose The Dough Bar. We try and keep it classy and sometimes a little smart assy.
Today’s cookies are all the way CLASSY! A few weeks ago you might remember a Chanel inspired bridal shower cookie ensemble, today I have for you the most delightful and classy gender reveal grouping. This might me one of my most favorite I’ve done to date. Some are sassy, some are flashy but, all are classy. I mixed designs and patterns using only two different shapes to pull together the full look, all in all there were 11 different designs for the 36 cookies.
Ladies and Gentleman it’s a girl! Yup little Paisley Raye will be here before you know it and Mom wanted the world to know she was bringing in her little darling with style and grace. Using a circle cutter and our onesie cutter I designed six different onesie outfits and five different circle styles in total. I loved the name Paisley Raye and mom wanted it displayed on the onesie in a unique way. I knew the perfect font was Simply Glamorous because it adds just the right touch of whimsy to a very refined black and white suit. Next up I chose to add a few rosettes to simplify and tone it down a bit. However, I topped it off with a bold statement of girl power with our “Girl” cookie.
Of course the onesies were monogrammed with the baby’s name and Coco Chanel’s signature double CCs. I did however, chose to do one set of onesies with an implied version on the baby’s name so using a stencil I applied black icing to our dried white onesie in a paisley pattern. To complete the look I added sugar lace as a tulle skirt to the bottom of the outfit along with large edible pearls. Baby Paisley is already making a statement to the world.
Everything on our cookies is edible and non-toxic.
