This hot air balloon cookie cutter is definitely my new favourite! For these cookies I used bright rainbow colours, but I have seen some lovely hot air balloon cookies in pastel shades for baby showers and children’s parties.
To achieve the look like in the picture above, pipe horizontal sections of royal icing in various colours onto the cookie. While the icing is still wet, take a toothpick and drag lines down the cookie, from top to bottom to give the rounded shape of the balloon. You should make sure that all the colours of icing are the same consistency and be sure to wipe the tip of the toothpick after each line. Have fun!
