Nesting Birds Baby Shower Cake and Cookies

I think baby showers might be my new favourite event. Birthdays are pretty cool, but a baby shower almost always guarantees a theme that is really cute. Like the nesting birds theme that inspired this cake and matching cookies... Cute!!
The cake and cookies were based on invitations and decorations that were being used for the baby shower, it's a very sweet design and I had a lot of fun with it.
The expectant parents had decided to keep the gender of the baby as a surprise, so the white, pink and blue birds kept people questioning.
I think my favourite touch on the cake were the three little birdies sitting on the side. The happy parents have three little boys and it was a lovely way to include them in the day, a great suggestion by the hostess.

  7. Do you have a tutorial on how to make these? What kind of cutter did you use to make the bird shapes?
    My sister's baby shower is approaching and I want to reproduce your idea for her.
    Thank you!! :-)
