Sweet Baptism Cookies

decorated baptism cookies |
I jumped at the opportunity to make some baptism cookies last week. This is a family we love so much...the parents have been so good to Jack. You know those people you spend time with and then you go home and say to your husband, "I LOVE THEM." These are those people.

Their youngest was being baptized and even though I don't take cookie orders anymore, I knew I had to make these.

You can find the tutorial for making the dove cookies here. I just added a little pop of pink and green on these.

Claddagh Cookies, decorated nine ways!

Ah, the claddagh. If you're not familiar with it, the claddagh is an Irish symbol for Love, Loyalty, and Friendship. You'll most often see a claddagh on rings.

[NOTE: I just could not decide how to decorate this cookie, so I decorated it nine different ways! Ha. I'll show you how.]

how to decorate Irish claddagh ring cookies

There was a time in my life when I went through a big claddagh ring phase. I think I was in my late teens/early twenties. I always had that ring on. The tradition goes that you turn the heart outward if you're single, and towards yourself if you're taken. I felt like I'd always be the single girl with my ring turned out. ;)

(This site has some really pretty claddagh rings, and now I think I need one this time, please, and turned inward.)
