Rainbow Brush Embroidery Cookies

Our friends recently celebrated their baby’s 1st birthday, so I thought I’d make some cookies to celebrate 🙂 I love brush embroidery because it’s relatively simple to do, but the result is always impressive. And the colors can be customized for any occasion! I took these to the next level by using a rainbow palette made with concentrated colors from the Wilton Color Right set. Scroll down for the tutorial and supply list!

Cookie Planets!

In a recent Instagram Story, I mentioned how much I dislike mixing icing colors. One of the reasons I started painting on royal icing is partially because of the versatility of the medium, but also because I’m pretty lazy when it comes to prepping for a project 😉

And, in a very unscientific study (involving asking my family members to stick their tongues out after eating these cookie planets), I found out that painted icing is less likely to stain your mouth than if the color is mixed into the icing. This set was iced in white and painted with less than one drop of each color, which is probably why the cookies don’t leave a stain behind. If I had mixed the color into the icing, it would have taken much more food coloring to get the same effect. So, next time you have to make a dark color, try this method!

These dreamy seahorse & seashell cookies are decorated with pastel “watercolors” (a mixture of food coloring and 150+ proof vodka, Everclear or any flavor extract) and a little pearl dust for some sparkle. Scroll down for the supply list and video tutorial!

Cute Cactus Cookies!

I didn’t plan to post these cactus cookies right after my succulent cookie cups, but I guess I’m on a cactus kick! 

Autumn Carpenter of Country Kitchen SweetArt very generously sent me this set of cactus cookie cutters. Aren’t they adorable?? I had the perfect opportunity to use them a few weeks ago when my friends threw a southwestern-theme birthday party for their 2 year old daughter.
