Watercolor Cookies

I don't usually like to paint simply because I'm not that good at it. But, I was able to use what little skill I have (probably something I got from my mom, which you'll see if you visit her art blog), to make these "watercolor" cookies.


The inspiration for these cookies came from a drawer knob that I saw on display at the Home Depot. I painted the roses on by using edible shimmer dust mixed with alcohol (Bacardi 151). The mixture was thinner than usual so that I could get that watercolor look. I had to work quickly, though, because if the brush is left in one area for too long it will start to dissolve the icing.


Available in my Etsy shop. Don't forget to enter into the SweetAmbs Cookie giveaway at Fantabulously Frugal!
