It’s raining babies these days and no better way to celebrate a baby shower than with rosy-cheeked, smiley-faced raindrop cookies!
These cheerful cookies fit in with just about any baby shower given that “showers of love” is a universally sweet message. Boys, girls, surprise babies. They were for ’em all!
Plus, these raindrops are very beginner-friendly and offer lots of options for easy customization. I, for one, love mixing up facial expressions. These drops are ultra-happy campers!
Whilst the raindrops below are ever so sleepy!
I didn’t include a photo tutorial as I’ve done several similarly-styled cookies in the past. The long and the short of it: flood the cookies with blue icing; while still wet, add a bit of white for a reflection; let dry, and add edible marker details for the face and rosy cheeks with pink petal dust or pink sprinkles.
For more cookies with a similarly adorable look: these shamrocks, these clouds, and these baby faces. Perhaps, I should deviate from the norm and mix it up, but for now, I’m sticking with these sweeties!
Also, these raindrops would be perfectly paired with these umbrellas! Aprils Showers/Baby Shower cuteness overload!
I used various sized teardrop cutters from this Ateco set.
