These cookies were specially made for awesome my father in law. He is the most talented artist I know. He can create really beautiful drawings and paintings of beautiful things...i really admire his work. He was an art and design teacher at one of the university here, but he just recently retired. That just gives him more time to do the things he loves, like painting :)
So we thought we would make these little mini paint palette cookies. We have seen so many versions of these cookies but we like this one the best coz they are minis and colourful...so cute! :)
We put these mini cookies into a jar and put "The world's greatest Pop" (that's what we call him).
These are super easy and very fun to make. All you need is a small round cookie cutters and mainly just white icing. I love working with white icing coz that means that we don't have to put any colours straight after we made it :P
So pipe an outline and fill with flooding icing in a C shape.
Do a whole bunch of them then wait to dry overnight.
Then pipe a black line for the paint brush and then put the red tip straight away on top.
You dont even have to wait until this part dries, you can continue to put blobs of different paint colours around the palette. The best thing about this is that you can choose any paint colours you like, so when you have left over colour icings that you can use its perfect for this :)
Claudia had so much fun piping those colourful paint all around the palette :P
Let it dry for a few hours or overnight if you want to be extra sure, and then put them into
a small jar and decorate them as you please :)
We have one very happy recipient of this mini paint palette, unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of him and the cookies after we gave him his little present. You'll just have to take my word for it that he was pleased to receive the gift :)
