My co-worker and good friend Michelle is having a grandbaby! We’re so excited for her as she is the mother of four boys, and she’s having a grand-daughter! So we threw her a surprise shower at work! And we pulled it off without a hitch! She was totally shocked and we had so much fun.
We set up a little table and served cookies and Vietnamese coffee. The morning gal stayed and volunteered her time to serve lunch with me. (Have I mentioned I work in a school cafeteria?)
Michelle could sit back and check out all her gifts. Things to stay at grandma’s house!!!
I baked some adorable duck cookies.
I packaged a few cookies for Michelle to take home and share with her family.
Don’t they look all dressed up for Spring? These would also be perfect for Easter, or for a tea party!
I wanted to do onesies for the shower, but I couldn’t find a cookie cutter. But these turned out so cute, I’m glad I couldn’t find one!
First I baked the sugar cookies. I used my favorite recipe.
Then using the same cookie cutter I used for the cookie, I cut out ducks from some rolled fondant.
Then I brushed some corn syrup over the entire cookie…
and placed the fondant duck cutout over the cookie. Just give it a little smooth job.
Then using a knife, I gave it a few slits to define some tail feathers.
Cutting off colored beak, I replace them with an orange beak.
I used the Wilton Pastel fondant, so I just mixed a little red food coloring into the yellow fondant and I was good to go! I did cut out the beaks using the nose of the cookie cutter.
Then top them off with a cute little eye! I bought mine from Bake It Pretty.
Now I got all my ducks in a row!
