The Partiologist: Mardi Gras Cookies!

Mardi Gras Cookies!

It's time to Pardi Gras!  I'm going to share with you what I know about Mardi Gras...
 
Okay, that about sums it up.  Well, I guess I do know a few things, like gold, purple and green.  And cookies.  And SPARKLE!  I had the opportunity to make these cookies and they get to go to a Mardi Gras Party, or I like to call it Pardi Gras.



Each cookie was hand crafted with love and butter cream.
 

And sparkles.
 

And because they took me forever to make, I want you to look at them again...
 

Thank you for looking.
 
Now are you looking for a tutorial?
 

 Let's just say, I had good intentions. 
If you really want to make any of these, just ask and I'll tell you how.
 
My cookies seem to have more fun then me, they go to party after party after party. 
Sometimes I wish I was a cookie...
 

until someone takes the first bite.
 
Now, if you want to learn how to make a King Cake, Sugar Ed Productions offers an incredible tutorial - HERE!  Once you subscribe, you'll be amazed at how much is offered!  Gotta go, it's time to...
 
 PARDI GRAS!

  15. What is the texture or the recipe if possible for the buttercream also does it crust or is it still soft at the touch I think it's MA and my daughter was just asking if there was a way to use buttercream on cookiesp

    1. This is a crusting buttercream frosting, check out a recipe here: http://www.thepartiologist.com/2015/11/buttercream-thanksgiving.html

      It will crust if left to dry overnight and then package carefully. Hope this helps! :)
