Yeti Baby Shower Color Palette and Icing Color Formulas

Use this icing color palette and the formulas to make icing for your next baby shower cookie project!! 


I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas.

When I make different colors with the same ratios (like the blues and purples above), I usually make the darkest color first. Then I add some of the darker colored icing into a bowl of fresh white icing to make a lighter version of the same icing.

I wanted an icy look for these cookies, so I sprayed them all with a pearl sheen after the icing was dry. You know... in case you were wondering why they were all shiny.

My youngest just asked if she should throw her snack wrapper into the “garbage” or the “fake garbage.”

I’ve got to say...this explains a lot of things.

When I make very light or pale icing colors, I mix the food coloring into a very small amount of icing (a tablespoon or two) first and then use that saturated icing to color the rest of my icing. (Check out THIS POST for details.)

As it turns out, I think there's actually TWO OF ME. But...not at the same time. Goodness. That would be confusing. I don't think the two mes even like each other. It's very Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide of them. See, there's a Motivated Me and a very much UNmotivated Me.

I am not a stranger to food color markers. You guys. This is a safe zone, right? I own probably over 100 food color markers. Ten or twelve different brands. Dozens of colors and shades. Thin ones, fat ones, dried out ones that really should just be thrown away. I've even MADE MY OWN food color markers. So when Jennifer of Bees Baked Art Supplies wanted to send me some of these Double Ended Food Pens from Dripcolor - I was ALL IN!!

I wasn't sure that these cookies needed their own tutorial. I made a projector image template for the ribbon and was going to just tuck that into some other post somewhere. But when I started writing yesterday's post....the projector image kind of turned into a 4 year old at the grocery store - in the way and not even remotely helping me get done what I needed to do.

I usually start my posts with a little story that quickly moves from normal (like a hungry person eating french fries with ketchup) to out of control (like 7 polka dot unicorns dancing the conga down the highway while setting off fireworks and releasing glitter balloons and then jumping into a pool filled with bouncy balls and grape jello) in about 4 seconds flat. I can't help it.  My thoughts just go from one side of my brain to the other when I start writing a post. Mostly because I type my posts late at night. And also maybe because I eat too much sugar on a regular basis.

But guys... there's nothing funny about cancer.

My birthday is next week. I'm not normally a big birthday-celebrater kind of person, but I just realized that I spent the entire year telling people that I was 38 years old. And... after a little wrestling match with some math...it turns out that I am in fact, actually only THIRTY SEVEN YEARS OLD. You guys! I cheated myself for an entire year! Now I feel like I have to make up for it by shouting to anyone that will listen that I am exactly 37 years old...for a few more days at least.

How To Make Decorated Popcorn Bowl Sugar Cookies

There's not a lot of things I take too seriously, but bedtime and popcorn definitely make the list. My husband used to be gone A LOT with the military. And with four kids ... (that I love with my WHOLE HEART!!) ... some days bedtime was the only reason I made it through the day.

Have you ever seen the movie Gremlins? Basically there are these CRAZY ADORABLE creatures that everyone in the entire world with an actual heart, just wants to take home and squish and hold for the rest of their lives. But details...details...details...I honestly can't remember how...but somehow they turn into these CRAZY MONSTERS with nightmarish faces and they basically can't be stopped on their rampage of destruction. I'm like that exactly 7 seconds past bedtime. Including the face. It's terrifying really.

I have a confession. I kind of LOVE airports. If I have an afternoon flight, I'll legitimately get a ride to the airport at 6 am just so I can hang out. I'm not even kidding. There is always so much going on...and none of it involves me.

None of it requires my attention or intervention. I can watch children go through complete and utter melt downs in the middle of a public walk way, screaming and begging their parents to somehow change the laws of the universe because "HE TOOK MY CAR AND ALSO I AM NOT EATING CANDY AND MY LEGS STOPPED WORKING!!" and I can think to myself, "Oh...kids are so adorable."
