Its officially rainbow season!
One of my favorite people, Paige, is turning six!!!
Last year she had a Disney Princess party....
which I made waaaay too many cookies for....
then those cookies turned into a blog....
THIS year its a Rainbow Party!!
When I heard a few weeks ago that she had chosen a rainbow party, I thought,
"Oh that's great! I haven't made those before,
and I don't think I've seen too many of those around either...."
Then the St. Patrick's Day craftiness exploded all over the place and
I saw more rainbow cookies than I could count!
All of them super cute, I might add.
So what's a cookie lady to do...
I wanted to make something I hadn't made before, and that I hadn't seen yet.
Hmmm....what do little girls love just as much as rainbows!
Here we go!
(I'm trying this tutorial business again...)
I do not own a rainbow cutter, and because of the rainbow explosion I mentioned earlier,
there aren't any to be found...
I used the largest circle cutter from my set, and the littlest cutter to cut a hole in the center.
It looked just like a donut, then I cut it in half!
I added two heart shaped clouds for fun.
I outlined the hearts with a number 2 tip and let that dry.
Here's one with the regular cloud shape.
Someday....someday....I will remember to take all the in between pictures!
I used a number 101 tip and icing a little bit stiffer than piping consistency.
Being right-handed, I started on the left side and just....went for it...
My icing should have been a bit stiffer I think, and maybe a larger tip...
(I like to think about what I would do different the next time.)
Since I had six rainbows to do, first I did all the red, then all the orange and so on,
giving the previous color just enough time to start crusting a bit.
They were done in no time!
This is my new favorite cookie to make!
(until I make the next new cookie...)
Six is a pretty big birthday, don't you think?
Closer to ten, more than half a decade old!
