I shared my son’s taco birthday party here. But I wanted to do a special post for just the cookies themselves.
These were SO fun to make!
I used a crinkle edged circle cutter, then cut them in half with my spatula.
For the speckles I used this technique for splattering brown food coloring. Some of them got a little too speckled but in the end it just made them all unique!
Once the shells were dry I added buttercream “meat” brown blobs.
I alternated the blobs with leafy green buttercream stars. All of my leaf tips were way too big for these cookies, so the star tip was the next best thing.
Lastly I added the cheese and tomatoes with orange and red buttercream.
Because I wanted to present the cookies as “pantloads,” I wanted them wrapped individually and carefully so that you could see the tacos clearly. I cut the bags short and taped them down the back.
I love how these turned out! So simple yet so detailed and cute!
