I came across a video on University of Cookie, that shows how to paint on cookies with food coloring. I thought, HOW COOL! My second thought was that Mom T. would love this :)
Mom T. is an artist. A very talented artist. Go see her blog. LIKE NOW people!
Anyways, I knew she would find this idea really fun for a class she teaches. I talked to her about it and she was just as excited as I was. So to try this out, I made some sugar cookies, frosted them with royal icing, packed up all my supplies (and my guy), and headed off for a visit.
Some frosted cookies, a little gel food coloring and water, paintbrushes, our imaginations, and a few minutes later…we have decorated (painted) cookies!
Note: The photos you are about to see are real! You will clearly see the different levels of artistic talent!
What a fun way to spend the afternoon (after a few grumbles from my guy, I think he ended up having fun also!). I definitely see more cookie painting in my future!
Made with love, not calories.
