Baby Shower Ducky Cookies

This client contacted me to create custom cookie favors for a Harvard Business School colleague's office baby shower.

Per the client, the final cookie design needed to be simultaneously sophisticated and cute. This particular shower had a gender-neutral, general bird theme.

My client and I came-up with two options: 1. Assortment of mini farm animal cookies (including mini chick and duck shape cookies) and, 2. Ducky cookies.
Option #2 was the winning design, and we went with a cheery rubber ducky color palate. The ducky cookies are Jennifer's signature melt-in-your-mouth butter cookie, with vanilla/lemon icing glaze, fondant ducky eyes, and a vanilla candy outline. A final, very light dusting of edible gold powder made the yellow ducky color pop and added element of sophistication. These baby shower favors were packaged in clear cello-bags, and tied with iridescent yellow curling ribbon. At the client's request, Jennifer's business card was included with each favor.
