Steps for making I’m a Big Sister Cookies

For this set, we decided to honor both the newborn and the big sister. Selecting a soft color palette that would work for both was the key. We decided on a white, soft turquoise, pale pink, and a deeper strawberry pink for contrast. The footie pajamas is one of our favorite baby-themed cookie cutters. Tying in the colors of this cookie with the t-shirts for the “grown-up” big sister cookies was one way to make the set cohesive. To complete the collection, add some monograms and hello baby cookies on a simple circle.

  • Footie pajamas outline
    Start by outlining the footie pajamas cookie in white icing
  • Next, fill with white flood consistency icing
  • Immediately add dots of light blue flood consistency icing
  • Or add stripes in pink pipe consistency icing
  • Once the cookie has dried for a little while, pipe details in white

  • Outline t-shirt cookie with pipe consistency icing
  • Then fill with flood consistency
  • After letting icing dry, pipe saying with another color
  • Try different phrases using the same font

  • Outline and flood circle cookie
  • Once icing has dried, add monogram or saying
