I got a request to make cookies for a christening that is next weekend.

What cookies would you make, except for a cross. They don't want that. Also, it's not a baby christening.

Thank you in advance! icon_smile.gif

What about a simple monogram of the initial of the person being christened? Maybe include the date?

I'm curious, what kind of christening is it?

you could make a chalice or a candle cookies. you could make a circle or square cookie and frost in white icing and add white flowers.

How about the descending Dove with the sun rays behind it.
Also could do some chalice ones.... hhhmmm .... and maybe some cookies?

I got the same request! No cross!!! However, it is a baby's christening I have some options that you don't. Since I have been thinking and thinking about this what about: a church, a stained glass window with the sun's rays streaking through. Did you google christening? Check out the images. Also try clipart. Hope this helps.

BTW, I think I am going to end up with an angel or a christening suit. Any other ideas for me? (not trying to hijack your post!).

Good luck.

For the older christening, you could do praying hands or a dove.

For the infant christening, I think any baby item could also work. ie. teddy bears, baby colored flowers, baby bottles, pacifiers.

I like the monogram idea. Not only would it be simple, but it would be elegant and personal. For more of a challenge, you could do a round cookie decorated to look like stained glass. Once dry, pipe on a white dove or praying hands. Good luck!
