One of my dear friends is having a baby girl this month and I am so excited for her! When I was asked to bring some goodies to her baby shower I knew that I wanted to make sweet little baby faces. The theme of the shower was “This Chick is About to Hatch.” I planned on making the baby faces and hearts, but the chicks were a last-minute decision…and I loved them. I used mini chocolate chip sprinkles for the beaks.

The baby face cookies could not be simpler. I was inspired by Sue of Munchkin Munchies – I loved how she used edible food coloring markers to draw simple faces. It was fun to get creative and think of all of the little baby faces my little men used to make. I miss looking down into those beautiful blues for hours every day (and night!).

You can find my favorite sugar cookie recipe here. I used Callye’s 20 Second Royal Icing since I was only filling a simple circle and didn’t need an outline and a flood icing.

This would make a great present for a new mom too. I’m sure any new mommy would love something cute to munch on during those middle-of-the-night feedings.
