Birthday Preparations

Almost as good as the birthday itself is the preparation for the party. Grandma had been gathering items and making treats with Aunt M for a couple weeks but she still left a couple things for us to help her with. Grandma has become a fan of Pinterest and came up with some great under the sea treats.

First EJ cut out the sugar cookies.

 Then used this recipe to paint them. 

Painted Sugar Cookies

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 tsp water
  • food coloring
  • small clean paint brushes
  1. In small bowl beat the egg yolk and water until mixed. Divide into bowls for as many colors as you will be making.
  2. Put a few drops of food coloring in each bowl and mix. Use paint brushes to paint designs onto the sugar cookies then bake accordingly.
  3. If more yolk mixture is needed double or triple the recipe for desired amount of "paint".

 The result was vibrant and colorful cookies.

Second were the oyster "pearl" cookies.

Just a few ingredients were needed (lemon cookies, mint pearls, frosting, candy eyes) and the assembly was perfect for a soon to be four year old.

First she mixed the frosting.

Then assembled the cookies with Grandma.


And they were ready for the party.
