Her party theme was Wizard of Oz, and her mama did an AMAZING job with all the little details! Parties can drive a modern mama crazy, but once it’s all pulled together it’s spectacular!
I was up for the task of making the cookies of course. I had a hard time deciding what to make because there are so many fun ideas with this theme! I decided to go with rainbows, ruby red slippers, and a bit of yellow brick road.
Here is my progression with the rainbows… I wanted it to be as even as possible but didn’t want to have to mark out the cookie ahead of time.
I filled each rainbow color below the line it matched, if that makes sense. I started with every-other color to make sure nothing ran together while it was wet. Then I came back a little while later and did the rest.
For the yellow brick road I decided to line it all ahead of time and fill each section individually to give it dimension.
I think this was the first time I made so many colors WITHOUT making pink. It was weird. And it may never happen again. 🙂
The ruby red slippers. *sigh*
I outlined and filled in red, then added some disco dust once they were totally dry. I used a paint brush to just barely wet the top with vodka (don’t freak out, it evaporates) then sprinkled the sparkles across the cookie. Let it dry overnight, then used another dry paintbrush to brush off all the excess. There was sparkles EVERYWHERE.
Here are the finished cookies all together.
Love the dimension on the yellow brick road cookies.
It’s hard to capture just how sparkly the shoes were. I kind of want to sparkle everything now. #sparkleallthethings
So lucky to get to make these for little miss Hannah.
Now here are a couple of the other details from the party…
