Sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow too.

I’ve had my eye on rainbow cookies for sometime, after falling in love with some super piñata rainbow cookies. So when a tutorial popped up on my Facebook feed a few weeks ago, my rainbow cookie obsession was back.

Being me, I couldn’t just do squarish rainbow cookies and decided it would be a great excuse to use my new cookie cutters (I got them from ebay).

To make the dough it was easy enough, some effort was needed to knead the gel colours in…

Once all the layers were stacked up (I had to make an extra layer so it would fit the size of my cookie cutter, I did this by combining my left over pink and yellow to get a nice orange), and the cookies were sliced, I used my cutter to make my cookies that extra bit awesome

They did take a bit longer than stated in the recipe, around 20-25mins, possibly mine were thicker, and out they came

Using the left over dough I made some marbled cookies as can be seen in the pictures

These were a lot easier to make than expected and they look really impressive (even if I do say so myself)

Many thanks to iced gems for a great tutorial
