Red Egg and Ginger Party!

I had the pleasure of making sugar cookies for a Red Egg and Ginger party for the little Miss Selah, Aletheia and Josiah’s beautiful daughter. A Red Egg and Ginger party is a Chinese tradition for newborns, typically occurring one month after they are born to celebrate and welcome them. Eggs are a symbol of fertility and red is a color of good luck, so hard boiled eggs are typically dyed red and present as a symbol at the party.

Aletheia wanted to send all of her guests home with a lucky red egg favor, so asked me to make red egg cookies with a little “S” and heart on them, in gold. IMG_2914I outlined and flooded the egg shaped sugar cookies with red royal icing.

Welcome, little Selah! đŸ™‚
