Rainbow Cookie Tutorial

Because its the season of leprechauns and pots o' gold,

I'm reposting a tutorial for rainbow cookies!

Yes they look fancy, but they really are a snap.
Hope you give them a try!


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...." 

...ahem.



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!



RUFFLES!!!




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!  

Voila!  Rainbow!  

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!
