Splash of COLOR!

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 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!


  1. Soooo pretty! I really need to try that ruffle technique!

  4. So adorable! I wouldn't be able to eat such cookies, I'll just stare at them! :D

  5. Personal Protective Equipments is used as barriers between a person and a hazard. Their main purpose is to prevent injuries by protecting people from unnecessary exposure to hazards on the job. Hazards fall into 2 categories - physical and health hazards.Each employee is responsible for the maintenance and care of all PPE's assigned to him or her. PPE's won't work unless you use it correctly, so each workers job is to use the equipment responsibly so it can do its job of protecting you.

  6. How did I miss these when you posted!? You did a great job, thanks for the link!
