I'm fully aware that making a 3 tier fondant covered cake for my niece's baby shower is more than enough dessert, however, I was wanting to have a few extras to fill out the dessert table.
I had extra marshmallow fondant so I thought I would dress up my batch of roll out cookies.Since my niece's name starts with the letter E, I pulled out my small and large letter cookie cutters. I've added the sugar cookie recipe below.
I used the same cutters to cut out the marshmallow fondant too. Use a little buttercream to adhere the fondant to the cookie and you are all set. It's an easy and really pretty way to dress up a simple sugar cookie.
I'm also a big fan of themed chocolate lollipops. I think they are so cute. I've made princess themed chocolate lollipops for my daughter's birthday before as well as some valentine chocolate lollipops. I found the baby themed chocolate mold for under $4 at my local craft store and used my theme colors of white and pink to make them. A great, inexpensive way to customize and personalize your event.
