I love making baked goods to go along with shower themes. They have such cute invitations these days, with vibrant colors and adorable images, and it provides a lot of good inspiration for cookies and cakes. I made these cookies for a "mommy to bee" shower. (Get it?) The invitations were a white background with a goldenrod-colored beehive and a couple of bees flying about. So I made the cookies to match!
These are lemon-vanilla sugar cookies with royal icing. I presented them in cellophane bags tied with ribbons. With enough bubble wrap, I was even able to ship them a few hundred miles for the baby shower celebration!
