I want to share something exciting with you. I am going to become a grandma in June! I am so excited!! Chase is my oldest son and a few years ago, he fell in love with Anne. I can see why he did because she is amazing! Then, they got married! One day, a few months ago, Chase and Anne were at our house. We were all in the living room and Chase came in and sat down on the couch by his beautiful wife and said,”Hey, we are going to have a kid!” WHAT??? That is how you told me??? It was like he was asking me to pass the remote to him. Anne looked at him and said, “That’s how you are telling them?” (See why I like her?) He was so excited that he blurted it out! Anyway, they went to the doctor this week to find out what is was going to be. Want to know???? Well, lets do it cookie style:)
I got the idea for theses cookies from a friend of mine. Her name is Aileen of A Master Creation. Her blog is full of her beautiful and original creations. You need to check it out! Last week I sent her and email and asked if I could use her bee design and she was so sweet! She said yes and totally made my day! I am so happy she is my friend;) Thanks Aileen!!!
Once I had the cookie design, my friend Johnna aka The Polka-dot Zebra told me about The Reveal Parties people are having. She said the mommy to be would have an ultrasound but ask the technician to put the results in an envelope. The mommy to be takes the envelope to a bakery and the baker makes a cake while the parents plan a party. When the parents to be cut the cake, the color of the cake is pink or blue to reveal if it is a boy or a girl. Sounds fun! So, the color of the Bee Cookie at the end of this post will tell you what Chase and Anne are having so keep reading. NO PEEKING!!!!!
I used White, Pink and Blue Twenty Second Icing from Sweet Sugar Belle
Black Outline Icing
Pink and Blue Sanding Sugar
Can you tell what cutter I used? It is a mini heart that has been squeezed.
First, with the blue icing, outline the bee’s body. Flood immediately after.
Next, do the same to the pink one and let them dry for several hours.
After your pink and blue have dried, use the white icing to outline and flood the wings. Let these dry for a few more hours.
With the pink icing, outline the wing and make three lines on the body. While it is wet, sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Now do the same to the blue bees.
Next, with your black icing, make an eye and antenna. Now let them dry overnight.
You can put them in a jar with a cute little tag and let everyone guess what it is going to bee! Want to know what my first grandchild will be?
Wait for it…
Wait for it…
Wait for it…
It’s a BOY!!!!!
Congrats Chase and Anne!! We love you!
