For I invited friend Madeline to join me in my cookie painting.
Food coloring -- three kinds, food coloring pens, brushes, a jug of water and the escargot plates -- the perfect pallet for holding the "paint"!
And trays of heart shaped sugar cookies -- frosted with royal icing -- the prefect blank canvas for paint!
Madeline came and we spent the next hour and a half painting the trays of cookies -- she's quite creative and a wonderful baker and food artist!
Her cookies were awesome!!!!
And these are mine -- what fun we had for . . .
These cookies, that look like "conversation hearts" are to be my favor for the Valentine's Luncheon on Monday. They're perfect!
I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday -- what could be more seasonal than heart shaped cookies!!!!
very cute idea. and they look yummy
Good job Martha and Madeline! I've never seen "conversation heart" cookies. Deliciously wonderful!
there adorable! Happy Valentines Day!
We used to paint cookies when I was a little girl...this brought back many memories!
What a cute idea! I'll bet Madeleine loved helping you.
Oh how cute - I just baked them too on Friday but your look cuter! Great job!
All of your cookies are just beautiful and your sweet young friend, what fun to have her come help you. I'm sure you both ate some cookies as you painted???? What a wonderful party favor for your Valentine's luncheon. Spectacular!!!!
looks like lots of work, but fun work!
hey! what a great way to colour the icing.... much better than having to make several colours of icing... and then ice them...hahhah,.. I like this idea.
I made hearts with red sprinkles for us to nibble on while we worked. So the painted cookies were off limits -- she took hers home for her family.
Lovely idea Martha, you and Madeline have romantic hearts!
Adorable! Love your conversation heart cookies~ Happy Valentine's!
The cookies look great, looks like fun:@)
What great looking cookies, Martha! (Isn't royal icing a glorious thing for decorating cookies?) And what a great tradition. I really liked these.
Love the conversation cookies!!!
So cute. I think I need to get my hands on those edible ink markers. Thanks for brining your Valentines to Seasonal Sundays.

What a sweet idea! I'll bet you had fun.
Martha, they are perfect! You are most inspiring. And I love the idea of cookie conversation hearts. Have fun tomorrow.
How wonderful to have Madeline come to help you with your painting! Conversation hearts, indeed. I'm sure that conversation will be abounding at Linderhof's Valentine Luncheon! Enjoy the "fruits of your labors"!
What fun! The two of you did a fantastic job. This was really a great idea. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary
These are so cute. I was already thinking they looked like "conversation hearts" when I scrolled to your narrative. They really do! How nice that you had someone with which to paint. Happy Valentine's Day, Ginger
