Bridal Shower ‘Tushie Cookies

Tushie Cookies1Almost two weeks ago we attended one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve witnessed.  The ceremony and reception were both held outdoors in the foothills of the gorgeous mountains that surround us.  About a week prior to the wedding, I made these cookies as a party favor for the bride’s lingerie shower.  I wish I had pictures of her with the cookies, or even a photo of her at her wedding (she was stunning).  But, silly me, I forgot my camera to both events.  (Otherwise, I would also have a picture for you of Ben hamming it up on the dance floor, which is a one in a million opportunity!)

For these cookies, I ordered these gel pastes by Americolor.  My Wilton food colors previously ran out and since I wasn’t that thrilled with them in the first place, I decided to research other options.  I’m very happy with the vibrant colors and also with the convenient squeeze bottles in which they are packaged.

Tushie Cookies3I also used a new way to package the cookies.  Typically, I would drop them into a cellophane treat bag and then secure each bag with a twisty tie or ribbon.  This time, I took a little more time into the presentation of the packaging and loved the way they turned out.  Below is a step-by-step of how you can accomplish this look at a very low price.

First, purchase cellophane bags and use one per cookie.  You can find these bags on Amazon, Michael’s, Joann Fabrics and even in the Wilton aisle at Walmart.  You will also want to pick up some pretty scrapbooking paper or cardstock.  I found the perfect ones at Target which cost me only 99 cents for the entire package.

Cookie Packaging 5Center a piece of ribbon over the paper.

Cookie Packaging6Staple it to the paper and bag.

Cookie Packaging7Now that the ribbon is secured to the paper and bag, tie the ribbon in a bow.

Tushie Cookies2Repeat for all the cookies.

  6. Lovely cookies and such a great presentation ! Definitly an idea to remember.

  7. I would LOVE a tutorial as to how you made the actual cookies. The frosting part looks hard and I don’t know if I could figure it out on my own. I’m hosting a bridal shower in a month or so and I would LOVE to do these!

    • Hi Liz,

      Since I don’t consider myself an expert on cookie decorating, I will direct you to the resources I use. Annie, from Annie’s Eats, has a great tutorial on royal icing here. Sweet SugarBelle and Karen’s Cookies are also sites I refer to for cookie and icing recipes, along with equipment reviews. Feel free to email me with any other questions. :)

    • I was thinking the same thing as Liz! I think these are adorable! I’ll add this to my mental idea list for such occasions! One long-time fave is to twist little panties (thongs work best!) into fabric roses & attach them to a wire stem with floral tap! It makes a cute bouquet to use as decoration at lingerie parties! ;) (You can do it with newborn bodysuits for baby showers, too!) Maybe I’ll do a tutorial . . .

      By the way, these cookies could be decorated with diapers for baby showers too!

  8. These cookies are super adorable! What a great idea!

  9. Your cookies came out as cute as can be. :) Thank you for the acknowledgement. I really appreciate it. xoxo
