I want to tell you that these cookies were a particular challenge. I was asked to make Vintage Barbie cookies for a baby shower...if you look around on the internet you will see tons of images for a vintage Barbie....all in black and pink. Very Paris.
And then I was told I could NOT do pink and black...*sigh* Suddenly things got a bit trickier. You would be surprised haw hard it is to design anything Barbie without the pink and black combo..I mean it wouldn't seem like it, but give it a shot....and then incorporate baby somewhere.
It would have been so much easier to do black and pink...
This is the inspiration I used instead
In the end, I am glad that I didn't have the option because I like what I ended up with SO much more than I would have liked the black and pink... :)
To top it off, I was away from home when I made these. We went to visit my in-laws for Mother's Day and we ended up staying the rest of the week because two things happened.
One cool thing: My husband had a job interview *yay!*
One bad thing: My dog that I've has since college had a heart attack and died on the way to the hospital. :( So we had to wait for her ashes to come back from the crematory.
Basically I was away from all of my supplies so I had to hit up the local Michaels and make what I could find work. Slim pickin's....
Despite the setbacks, I think they turned out pretty well tho!
So Thanks Caroline for challenging me (by banning the black and pink combo). :)
