Sometimes life takes us thru a few storms that knocks us back and everything just seem dark. We knew someone who just went thru a very difficult time in her journey. So we want to make her something sweet to brighten up her day :)
Someone wise once told me to always look for the rainbow in every storm and to train ourselves to find the blessings in everything. So hopefully these cookies will encourage her to do just that :)
Rainbow always makes me happy, and its also a sign of blessing....so i knew i wanted to make a rainbow cookie, but unfortunately we dont have a rainbow cutter so we had to get creative in using the cutters we have. We use a big round cutter, a small cutter and a small flower cutter. Cut the dough with the round cutter and then cut it into half, then put the flower on each end of the half circle.
We usually get all our icing colours prepared while waiting for the cookies to cool. Start with alternating the rainbow colours and let it dry and then do the altenating colour. We use tip #3.
After the rainbow colours are dry, fill the cloud area with white flooding and let it dry, then add the outline all around the clouds. We use tip #2 to do the outline.
You can make the rainbows in different colour combo if you like, we made 2 different sets :)
For the hot air baloon we start with marking the area that we want to fill with different colours. Use edible marker to mark the sections.
To start decorating the hot air baloon, begin with alternating colours to give definition between each colours. Let it dry before doing the next step.
Next we use outline consistency brown icing to do the outline of the balloon. Then add the rope at the bottom as well as pipe the hot air balloon basket with the same brown icing. We use tip#1.5 for the brown icing.
This is what they look like when they are done :)
The flowers are decorated the same way, put the icing in alternating colours.
Add the white centre, while the white icing is still wet sprinkle the white 100 & 1000s on top of the wet icing. Let it dry.
