I made these fun rainbow cookies for my little lady’s Unicorn First Birthday Party.
I was busy planning 2 birthday parties at the same time and needed to save myself from getting too overeager and stressed. I decided to make some simple cookies that would still have that WOW factor.
I baked them with sprinkles because nothing says rainbow and unicorn like sprinkles!
I bought this cute rainbow cookie cutter here.
I outlined these in white buttercream and filled with white icing. Once they were dry they were ready for painting!
I mixed food coloring gel with a couple drops of vodka. (Lemon juice can also be used if you don’t want to use vodka or don’t have any on hand. The alcohol evaporates so there’s no issue with kids eating these!)
I used a small paintbrush to paint the colors on one at a time.
This was the first time I’ve done this and I learned as I was going that I should have waited to do the next color until the first one had dried. Some of my colors were a little thin and started the bleed into each other.
Most of them still turned out pretty cute in the end. They kind of looked like a kid had painted or colored them. 💗
I decided to outline the clouds at the end because it helped cover the awkward line where the color met the cloud.
At the party I used them as favors. They looked so cute on the table with the rest of the decorations!
