Sometimes life gets so busy that things like ordering treats for your kiddo’s birthday party can get pushed to the side until—uh oh, it’s too late! Sound familiar to you? This is pretty typical for me. Good news is, in situations like this, I am forced to improvise, which sometimes yields the best results.
A few weeks ago, my business partner and I were preparing for her son’s art-themed birthday party. I will share the full party spread with you soon, but in the meantime, I had to share this quick and easy cookie tutorial for the next time you need a party treat in a hurry!
Artist’s Palette Cookies: Super Easy, Super Fun, Super Cute!
Here’s what you need to do…
1. Bake up some sugar cookies
2. Punch a hole in slightly warm cookie (I used the opposite end of my icing tip)
3. Pipe icing onto you cookies in the shape of a paint palette
4. Decorate with M&M candies to mimic dollops of paint
Now, you are all ready to serve them up on a platter or use them as a party favor like we did here!
Grab some cello bags, baker’s twine and some tags and here are some edible pieces of art your little Picassos can take home. Have a great party DIY you want to share? Leave a comment or upload your pics into our gallery.
