Shower Sugar Cookies

Summer is a time for showers--not rain showers! Baby showers and bridal showers! The perfect compliment to hosting a shower is to have some delicious treats to share with your girlfriends. I am a huge fan of sugar cookies since you can buy an assortment of cutters to fit your occasion and are fun to make. Plus, you can easily frost with royal icing and sprinkles to personalize them. 

I made these cute "panty" cookies for a bridal shower and they were a hit. A friend and I decorated around 2 dozen cookies to share with our girlfriends. We used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make the bride's bum. Then we whipped up some royal icing, to create the panty outline. Here is a great tutorial with how to frost with royal icing properly. 

To decorate, choose a few colors that coordinate with the theme of your party. Add some royal icing in a small bowl and add a few drops of food coloring, I like Wilton's, and mix together. Place the colored icing into piping bags. You can easily use zip lock baggies to frost, but I use piping bags so that I can use different decorating tips. While the icing is still wet, sprinkle a few colored jimmies to add some sparkle and embellishments.
