Bridal Shower ‘Tushie Cookies’!

I can hardly believe I am saying this especially after my Granny Panties post last Friday, but I was totally inspired to make these cookies by the bridal “I Do” thong I gave my niece for one of her shower gifts this past weekend.

These aren’t your mama’s bridal shower cookies but they sure got a lot of laughs and attention!

I made a few just for fun. I wrapped them up and told Jennifer, the bride, I made some new samples for her cookie wedding favors. My family and I are kinda nutty and we like to laugh and kid each other, but you knew that about me already didn’t you?

Here are some different styles.
Yes, I even made one for John, the groom, with the bride’s name on it, with panties.
It was a joke that he wore women’s panties.
He doesn’t, but for the sake of my cookie I’m willing to start the humor.

If you’re wondering how to make the shape, I used a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut off the point. The more pronounced the heart shape, the more ‘junk in the trunk’ you’ll appear to have.
So fun!

Back to the shower ~
It was a lovely day graciously hosted by Syl, John’s sister and the bride’s sister, Mizz, who has a wicked sense of humor, but even I was surprised when it came to ‘Pin The Junk on John’ with John’s superimposed face on a hunky body. I wonder what Target would think of using their logo in such an ingenious way. Don’t worry, the ‘stickers’ were our names!
Very clever and very funny!

Jennifer’s 89 year-old grandma, my mother-in-law, came with me.
She is incredible.

And yes, we all wear bows on our heads when we open gifts.

It was a tradition started by my mother-in law’s father, the bride’s great-grandfather.
Actually, there’s no way to tell how far back this silly genetic (mutation) anomaly occurred.
It’s just something we do. 🙂


So what do you think. Should I submit these to Martha? 😉

  22. Your creativeness know no bounds and, in reality, I think you outshine Martha. Certainly, show your cookies to her…you should get an invite to be on her show!

  23. LOL! I WAS trying to figure out what shape cutter you used. What a hoot!

  24. I tried to make these cookies last night and to say it was a failure was an understatement. We used a heart shaped cookie cutter with Pillsbury sugar cookie dough (cutting off the point of the heart). The dough was rolled out thick to prevent crumbling. After taking the cookies out of the oven we found that the cookies had taken on an oval shape. Also, the dough didn’t cook up very smoothly. We made royal icing according to the recipe. We use toothpicks, pastry bags and tips, small craft paintbrushes. They looked awful.

    Are there any tips to make these a success? Or can I just order them? I’m hosting a bridal shower in February. Thanks.

  25. Hi Marie,

    I highly recommend my recipe for sugar cookies on my side bar. I have never used commercially prepared dough but I have feeling the ingredients might cause the dough to spread while baking. You can also read my tutorials on rolling dough the dough and the recipe and tips for using royal icing.

    If you have any further questions you can email me.

  26. Hi! Can I purchase these from you? I am going to a bachelorette party in 2 weeks and just found your blog. They would be perfect! And my friends fiance is named John!

  27. Katherine,

    send me an email and we can talk. 🙂

  28. Do you pipe a line first and then fill in with the thinned icing?
