Cable knit effect with royal icing

Now it the time to share some beautiful baby shower cookies!  

These cookies you will be able to use them as decorations, as dessert and as party favors,  how cool is that?  

I love these baby's clothes cookie cutters from Meri Meri, you can find them here 

I decided to cover these cookies with plain white icing. 

Then added some elegant touches using tiny, tiny edible pearls and made a cable knit effect with royal icing.

A onesie with ruffles in the back, is a most for this set! 

If you know the gender of the baby you can use pink or blue tiny edible pearls and for a non gender baby shower the cookies in white are a great idea, you can add some color in the packaging that match your baby shower decor. 

To make the dry line, I used a photo hanger click here and I individually wrap them  in a cellophane bag so they keep their freshness and will be more easy to hang. 

Here is the video so you can see how I made these sweet cookies, hope you like it!

How to decorate cookies step by step

For a while I wanted to make a video tutorial that include all the information necessary to bake and decorate cookies, but I think it if I wanted to make a video like that it will be super long, because I wanted to share with you too many things.  Sometimes I need to control my self and try to be more organize to share better content so my videos will be appealing to you and that you learn new things as well. 

I made a video where you can find one of my cookie recipes, the royal icing recipe and the basic techniques to decorate cookies. 


I made these beautiful birds, this is one of my first or if not my first copper cookie cutter. I remembered it was in the cover a Martha Stewart magazine back in the day and I fell in love with it. At that time I didn't knew how to decorate cookies, but this cookie cutter was one to the ones to put me on this cookie decorating adventure. 

I hope you enjoy this video, is in Spanish but you can use subtitles too. 

Thanks so much for reading!

Papi, TE AMO
