Baby boy shower cookies that will give you authority as a cookier

Baby boy shower cookies, a must at baby celebrations.

I’ll lay out what this page covers:

-baby boy shower cookies, idea sets/inspiration to get your brain creating (this section)

-cookie decorating techniques for these special little people

-popular baby boy shower cookie cutters and where to get them

-get your unique and time-saving royal icing templates for baby bow shower cookies

Onto some inspiration. As you know, the beauty is making your own sets with cutters and the requested colors. However, feel free to copy any of the cookies if it’s your desire❤️.

*Under each photo, I'll provide where I got some of the key cookie cutters.

If you are used to buying from Etsy, you know the shipping will hit you if you're not careful. I try to be loyal to my favorite shops. But I find it advantageous if  I want a particular shaped cutter to go to another of my favorite shops and do price and shape comparisons to try to buy all the cutters I want from just one shop each time I order.

So check around if you are interested in the cutters. Maybe one shop will have the same type in slightly different shapes.

Baby boy shower cookies in light navy, white, and gray. This is a hot air balloon and rainbow theme with teddy bears. The name plaque is an edible image.

The teddy bear cutters were the cheap plastic ones in the big Wilton cutter sets of animals.

The rainbow cutter is an old metal one that I've no idea where it came from now. If you would like a cute rainbow with clouds cutter that is much cuter with character, I do have them in my shop: Rainbow cookie cutters

The hot air balloon cutter I got through Bobbi's Cutters on Etsy. Though all of her cookie cutters are quality, and I list her as one of my favorite shops,  this one is very basic and I feel you would be much happier with a prettier design from somewhere else.

Sorry, I do not have a link for the cute dinosaur set. I've had them for eons! However, I do have the large full set of dinos here.

Baby boy shower cookies: don’t leave behind these decorating techniques

Here are some examples of sugar cookies with different techniques we often overlook.

☑️Edible cookie images

It goes without saying. Using these images saves so much time. An edible image does not have to take up the entire cookie either. On this cookie, I could have simply cut out the big balloon and pasted it on with a very thin layer of light corn syrup (any brand will do).

Silicone molds

The little raccoon on this cookie was made by using fondant. However, molding chocolate, even poured chocolate into a mold works great. I love that it adds such a 3D look.

This was 2 techniques. I also used my airbrush to stencil on the background.

Cookie Stenciling

Whether it’s a thicker consistency royal icing on top of the base coat with a cookie stencils, or airbrushing cookies (or use edible markers), you can’t go wrong. You know how I go on about airbrushing enhancing cookies. It’s how you make professional cookies!

Food color markers

Don’t underestimate the power of edible food color markers. They can be the entire decorating instead of piping, which saves loads of time! See my 7 comparison brands of food color markers here.

Wet-on-wet technique

There is nothing simpler than this technique. In this image the leaves are and white background were the same consistency. Make sure the royal icing consistencies are the same or the lighter color will pull the darker color into it.

Oh, baby plaque with palm leaves. I used the wet-on-wet technique.

Royal icing transfers

With these sugar cookies, I used my royal icing templates and made the bananas and coconuts. You can get all the baby boy royal icing transfer sheets in Shop Gotta-havs! in the last section.
