Let’s see what’s in the Color My Cookie “Hey, Sugar” kit!
The kit was shipped in a plain brown box with with a Color My Cookie logo sticker in the top left corner.
A second smaller box (also featuring a logo sticker) contained the actual cookies/supplies.
A peek inside!
A 2-sided welcome letter provided a brief history/background on the company on the front — while the reverse side included a QR code for videos on decorating tips & tricks, a list of contents, and additional information on the cookies.
Our kit contained…
2 pre-iced candy-shaped cookies
2 pre-iced ice cream cone-shaped cookies
2 pre-iced donut-shaped cookies
A palette-shaped pre-iced cookie with edible watercolors, 2 paintbrushes, and 3 plastic cups
A bag of pink icing, rainbow sprinkles, and pastel/glitter sprinkles
Time to decorate!
First, I had my daughters get everything set up on the dining room table — which took all of 30 seconds. 😉 They simply took everything out of the box, filled the cups with water/sprinkles, opened the “palette cookie”, got their brushes wet… and painted away!
The palette cookie comes with four little edible blobs of food coloring that are activated by rubbing a wet paintbrush over them. — Sort of like those old paint-with-water books, but a lot cooler. (And tastier!)
Since the the cookies were already iced, “painting” them was incredibly easy. — Made even easier thanks to the piping along the edges that held the colors in place.
My kids are at the age (9) where projects like these need little to no supervision on my part, which means the only “job” I had was snapping a few photos. (Note: I promise they were having fun here… They were just very focused. Painting cookies is serious business, folks. 😉 )
The color palette was perfect for whipping up a delicious ice cream cone…
… and a perfectly pastel donut! Mmm!
The girls did surprisingly well with the piping bag… Way better than I probably would have done!
Of course, sprinkles are always a kid favorite and my girls had fun digging through them to find just the right cookie embellishments.
So much sprinkle-y goodness!!
The girls were very proud of how the cookies turned out and couldn’t wait to try one. 🙂 (Spoiler: They each had one after dinner the following day and they got a BIG thumbs up!)
Needless to say, my daughters had so much fun with their “Hey, Sugar!” themed Color My Cookie kit! I enjoyed it too, since it required very little prep on my part and all of the needed supplies were included. The only things I had to provide were a couple sheets of wax paper to contain the mess and some water for activating the food coloring. It doesn’t get easier than that! 😉 — Remember, if you’d like to order a kit for yourself or as a gift you can save 10% on your first order plus FREE shipping with coupon code “TAKETEN“!
