Taco Cookies

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.

I outlined in buttercream and filled the tacos with “taco shell yellow” glacé which I made by mixing Wilton buttercup and golden yellow.

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!
