Ballerina Cookies for Abigail Cristin

My daughter and her husband are expecting their first child. A baby girl. My first grandchild. A baby girl. My baby girl is having a baby girl. I'm beyond excited! 

I'm not a shopper. I know I'm weird. I think it's the biggest waste of time to shop and I'd much rather be out on a bike ride or decorating cookies. But... then there's baby clothes. I'm HOOKED! You wouldn't believe how many baby outfits I've bought for my unborn granddaughter. I'm embarrassed to say. So instead I'll show you one. Just one today. I made some cookies to match. 
 I've never made ballerina cookies before, but when you have a baby girl granddaughter, I think it's required. Well if it's not, it's definitely required to make ballerina cookies after you see this absolutely adorable baby outfit. Isn't that just the cutest thing ever! Do you see why it was necessary to make cookies? Yaa me too.
I really wanted to make the ruffles on that onesie tutu. Glaze icing doesn't make ruffles. I have an idea for next time, but these will do for now.

 I know this girl face isn't really ballerina-ish, but it was so cute that I couldn't resist.

So one baby outfit and I made 13 cookies to match. Not 113 cookies, not 213 cookies, but 13 cookies. Since I usually make a gazillion cookies every week, I was pretty excited to make just 13 to play. 
Mellissa's baby shower is coming up on June 30th. The theme of the baby shower is jungle animals and I've never made a jungle animal cookie, so I have lots more playing to do!
Look at those smiles. Mellissa is excited to be a mom and Nick is super excited to be an uncle!
