Michelle from Sugar Swings had a fabulous idea to create a virtual Baby Shower for Meaghan in the Rainbow style. She asked me come along and you know since I was already thinking about Christmas centerpieces… I made a rainbow centerpiece for the joyful occasion.
Large flower cookie cutter – for the base, I bought mine at a Dollar store years ago, it is about 5inches wide, Country Kitchen carries a nested flower cutter set with a 5 inch flower cutter
Small flower cookie cutter to make the clouds.
One large and one medium round cookie cutter – to create a rainbow shape
Mini rose/tulip cutter and a mini flower cutter – to create daisies, I bought the mini tulip cutter at a local store and I can’t seem to locate the same one online, but here is a similar one you can use as well to create mini daisies, from The Cookie Cutter Company
Drinking straw to make 2 holes in the base cookie, for the ribbon
Piping bag fitted with a small leaf metal tip
Here are all the cookie cutters I used to construct the Rainbow Centerpiece
Decorate cookies, I used 3 different shade of green to decorate the base large flower cookie
Make small royal icing leaves using small leaf metal tip and a medium stiff icing, let dry
Using a royal icing attach dry royal icing leaves onto the base by the daisy flowers.Add a ribbon.
Using stiff royal icing attach all the cookie pieces onto the base, making sure you support the cookie with some crumbled plastic wrap for at least a few hours until icing/glue dries. Remove supports and enjoy the centerpiece
Welcome Baby Girl Violet Lake.
Wishing you – Meaghan and your family Wonderful Rainbow Christmas.

These cookies have been on my “Bake This List” for years. I’m not accustomed to use whole lot of cardamom (I was a little scared to use the amount original recipe suggested) so I tweaked the recipe a bit, adding a cinnamon too. I love cinnamon, and I love cardamom, even more now that I…

Nearly 2 years have passed since I blogged about Valentine’s Day S’more Cookies Stirrers. Back then I had to assemble cookies stirrers using 2 cookies. You can check it out here. The minute I saw the cookie cutter set at Ikea I knew I’d make the stirrers again. There are 5 cutters in the set, one…
I’ve heard about this soup so many times, never made it though; but since I still have some raw butternut squash saved up from the last fall I finally came to my soup senses and decided to try it out. I used my instincts when I decided to roast it first. I love roasted…
