Get Creative...It's Edible Art

One of the best things about painting cookies is that you can actually eat your creations. There's no need to worry about your art lasting or having to find a place to display it - just pop it in your mouth and enjoy.

Painting your own cookies allows you to express your creativity and make something unique. You can use different colors, shapes, and designs to come up with something truly one-of-a-kind.
