Baby Girl Carousel Cookies

These baby girl carousel cookies were a lot of fun!  Because mixing the colors can be a very time-consuming part of the process, I always take a moment to draw out a draft of my design. It doesn’t have to be terribly detailed, but it helps give me an idea of how much flood/piping icing I need for each of my colors, and a basic blueprint for getting started.

Sometimes, I don’t have a clear idea of what I want, so I try a few ideas just to see which design I like the best.  For example, you can see in the image above that I experimented with the look of a diagonal tutu (bottom left), which I ultimately decided against.
