Baby Girl Shower Cookies to Welcome the Sweet Little Bundle of Joy (with videos)

Baby girl shower cookies. You want the best. The kind that that makes them gasp and say ‘those are too pretty to eat’. You also want to make the sugar cookies unique. That could mean in theme, cookie decorating techniques  and/or popular colors.

I always want to make the cookies I decorate to be special. If I am given inspo pictures, I gladly take them. I tell the customer I am happy to emulate them. Emulate meaning to make them even better with my own special touch. I also explain that no two artists can be exact.

Baby girl shower cookies, simple decorating techniques


✔️edible images

✔️wet-on-wet technique

Airbrushing is my favorite medium in decorating. I always encourage newer cookie artists to make this be one of the top cookie decorating tools. Actually, my top 3 picks for tools would be these, in order ( I feel) of importance:

✔️food dehydrator (my page here talks a bit about one with a valuable video)

✔️projector for cookies. This is my most popular page and ranks about #3 on Google search too!

✔️airbrushing cookies. This is my page that teaches airbrushing for beginners. Also, see what I have and love. You get 3 airbrushes, colors, etc. for the price of one! I also include a cordless airbrush I have and totally fell in love with it instantly. Check them out here: Airbrushing Cookies

I digress!


So how can you make professional baby girl shower cookies? The #1 way is airbrushing. Period. There is something about airbrushing cookies that gives that polished and finished look. Nowadays, customers have come to expect it. Though you most definitely need to charge extra, as you spend money on this yourself.

Here are some examples. They look ‘finished’. Do you not agree?

Adding airbrushing to baby girl shower cookies is a great way to take them to a professional level and make them the star of the show! See more ideas, techniques, popular cutters & RI transfer sheets:

-edible images...

I would have loved to share with you some adorable baby photos on cookies I’ve done. The parents preferred not to have me post them, which I completely understand. It’s quite common to place either the sonogram picture or newborn ones if they have the shower just after.

-wet-on-wet technique...

This is the easiest and quickest cookie decorating technique. With this idea, you only need the royal icing consistency to be the same across each color to help prevent color bleed. It is perfect for doing a design for the background of the cookie. However, it also can be the star of the show without any piping on top of it.

When you are first starting a cookie business, there is usually little or no money extra to buy the real cute cutters. You’ve always heard the adage “Invest back into your business”. The question is how can you do that without cash in hand, right?

This is the way I went from 0 cutters to 1650+. I stopped counting, lol…and yes, it is addicting to buy them! Each time an order was paid and picked up, I put back $5 for every $20 I took in. As my business blossomed, so did my stash of cutters.

I also nosed around garage sales and second-hand stores and picked them up for pennies. People in the community would just give me a few here and there if they didn’t want them. Christmas time, yep, guess what gifts I would get! I’ve enjoyed the journey…and still am.

To sum up, here are the 3 ways I built my cookie cutter collection:

✔️saved $ from each order

✔️garage sales and 2nd hand stores

✔️gifts from others

✔️BONUS way, Facebook groups like buy, sell, trade ones
