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?

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.

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!
