These darling pink ducks were made to welcome the arrival of Carly. This was a gift to a colleague of my husband who recently had a baby girl. I had to go PINK! My dilemma was do I go all pink or pink polka dots? I chose both by wrapping the cookies in a black polka dot box and tying with a curly pink ribbon. It is not visible in the photos but the white dots are glittery.
The duck cutter is one of my favorites since any design looks so darn cute. View the photos of other duck designs I made for earlier arrivals. The blue is obviously for a baby boy and the yellow is perfect for a shower when the baby’s gender is unknown.
