I have no excuse as to why I haven't posted these happy little cookies until now... They were actually for two sweet sisters who celebrated their birthdays about a month ago. I will just blame my lack of posting on Summer getting in the way. Summer can do that you know...
At our house Summer means sleeping in a bit later....lots of playing outside, swimming in our backyard inflatable pool, lemonade-making, crazy eight card game tournaments over lunch, lots of paper plates, paper napkins, and paper cups, a few band-aids here and there, backyard grilling, and bike rides.
For being a laid back season...Summer can sure keep us busy:) But I wouldn't trade it...Nope...not even when the temperatures soared above the 100 degree mark for well over a week.
I think I could take a hundred pictures of these rainbows and still not be bored. The colors just scream HaPpY!
I found the original idea for these on this AMAZING woman's blog. Can't even put her talent into words because it wouldn't do her justice.
But... when I originally saw these... my soon to be 8-year old at the time was dwelling on the thought of a rainbow themed birthday party. I was tickled to say the least... I had found the perfect cookie to go along with her chosen theme.
But then....as most kids do....she changed her mind....and a sweet fairy party it became.
But I didn't forget these cookies. I tucked the thought of them away....and they were the first that came to mind for these two sweet little birthday girls last month!
The ruffle technique was pretty painless ( I used a Wilton 101 tip)....and actually kind of a dreamy break from the usual piping and flooding:)
I told you I wouldn't be able to stop taking pictures....
Hope your summer days have been filled with color too!
