“Easy” striped rainbow cookies because you don’t need to fiddle with any couplers or tips with these. You don’t need two consistencies of icing. You don’t need to flood anything. You could even fill ziplocs instead of buying decorating bags, too.
I was making cookies for my dad’s birthday and wanted my daughters to make some for him, too. Whenever I make cookies and icing for kid’s cookie decorating, I make things as simple as possible. So I divide my royal icing into colors and scoop into disposable decorating bags, close tightly with rubber bands and snip the tip. Then they can pipe any design they like.
My kids designed these cookies here (the flowers are my eight year old’s, the more abstract designs are my three year old’s):
I made rainbow stripes. I wanted to use the same bags of icing they were using and I could pipe all of my cookies quickly and easily with rainbow stripes. I kind of love the ’80s vibe to these, too. A bit neon. Remember these “shutter shades” all neon ’80s style? Just doesn’t seem like a smart design for sunglasses, visually speaking, but hey, who am I to judge?
