Sugar Cookies: Ashley's Baby Shower


For Labor Day I went to visit my one aunt who lives in DE near the beach. During our stay, we went to visit my other aunt who lives about an hour away in a tiny little town about 30 minutes outside of Ocean City, MD. We started talking about my second-cousin Ashley's baby shower in October. Let's see if I can explain my family here:

My mom is the youngest of six children. There is a pretty decent gap between my mom and her sister Jeannie. Jeannie's daughter Wendy is my cousin, but is closer in age to my mom than me. Ashley (my second-cousin) is Wendy's daughter  and is almost six years younger than me. Did you follow that? Don't worry, there won't be a pop quiz or anything.

Anyway, Jeannie was talking about what foods she was going to make for the shower and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make something. I immediately thought of sugar cookies. Because I have issues with overdoing things, I also decided I would make black bottom cupcakes and mini chocolates from molds.

The week before Ashley's shower was a crazy one. I had college homework up to my ears and Tom had to go to New Orleans for a tradeshow for work. I spent pretty much all week alternating between accounting and desserts. What an interesting combination.

The shower went really well and Ashley got a ton of stuff. It was really nice to catch up with family that we don't always see on a regular basis. However, my desserts didn't go over so well.

I had planned on blogging the chocolate molds but didn't get a chance to take a picture of them before we left for the shower. Unfortunately they didn't do very well in the car (it must have been too warm) and ended up in a gooey chocolate mess. Oops!

Ashley's step-sister Deanna brougt bibs and onesies for everyone to decorate with fabric paint. I had a bit too much for with these:

This poor baby is going to have a bib or onesie for absolutely every holiday or occasion imaginable!
