CONFETTI COOKIES/ First Birthday



Look who’s turning ONE … a sweet babe with big blue eyes and corn silk hair and the face of a doll. Our grand niece, not quite ready to walk on her own, celebrated her first birthday with her big brother, little friends, cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Will she remember? No, but everyone else will recall how she entertained as this cutie indulged in her birthday cake with fingers, cheeks and nose coated in frosting. Priceless!

The circus party theme was complete with a clown cake served with cotton candy and fresh popcorn from a real-life popcorn machine. Animal crackers and large, colorful lollipops were party favors for the little tykes. For birthday cookies, visions of the big top, trapeze artists and dancing elephants came to mind. Inspiration for these cookies was grasped from the color scheme on the plates, napkins and decorations to create this simple, festive, confetti design. This design is versatile for any occasion and reminiscent of the 1950’s and 1960’s with the overlapping dots. I kept them small … just enough for two bites.
