In keeping with the theme of my new “Show Some Ocean Love” children’s book soon to be released, I have been celebrating the ocean and all of the amazing critters that live in it, and I was inspired to attempt “painting on a cookie”!
You can do it too! Bake any sugar cookie, and ice with white royal icing. I decided to try a Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sugar Cookie recipe (below) so that I could share a cookie painting kit with my friends. When it is dry, it is ready for you to paint with food colouring – it was so much fun! I used food colouring palettes from Emma’s Sweets, a local business to me in Ontario.

You don’t have to be perfect, I mean, look at my messy cookies; I can’t hold my hand steady to save my life! So just have fun! Get messy! Take chances! Make mistakes!
