rainbow palmiers

oh lookie.
more rainbow treats.
rainbow palmiers in fact.
it's all due to the green holiday coming up.
and the fact that i am a lover of 
all things colorful and bright.
but not so much of spending too much time 
in the kitchen when i know store bought 
stuff is better than i could ever make.

thus the reason i got these at target.

brown sugar and flaky pastry? yum!
i wasn't planning on turning them into rainbows 
but that's what happens when you are a 
holiday food crafter and everything looks like holiday stuff.

ok all you do is make some glaze 
with confectioner's sugar and milk.

i actually just threw some sugar in a bowl 
and slowly added a teaspoon of milk til 
i got a glue-like consistency.

then i grabbed my food gel colors,
saving a teaspoon or so of white for the clouds.
and a food designated paint brush.
and just started painting, 
washing the brush in between each color.

then the rain came. 
cuz you gotta have rain (sprinkles) to get a rainbow.
and you gotta have clouds.
(mini marshmallow bits on top of plain icing)

so now even though there are dark clouds, 
you'll still have a rainbow. :)
now just bag 'em up in st. patty's day decor 
and you are set to share the rainbow.

yay for happy colors for all!
