Fuzzy Baby Chick Cookies!

My friend Mara is having a baby! (Congratulations Mara!) She graciously allowed me to practice my new cake & cookie decorating skills for her shower, and gave me total creative freedom! I didn't have much to work with, since the gender of the baby is a surprise, and there wasn't really a theme for the shower.

I've always had a weird fascination with tiny fuzzy baby chicks, so that became my inspiration. I used the same cookie recipe and icing recipe that I used on the cookie bouquets. I added some sanding sugar while the royal icing was still wet to make them "fuzzy."

I loved my army of fuzzy baby chicks. I giggled uncontrollably when I had them all stacked in the box and ready to go.

I present to you, my fuzzy baby chick army:
