    OH. MY. STARS’N’STRIPES.

    These are SO beautiful!! I can’t express to you how happy it makes me that you made these! Look how hippie and tie-dyed they are! Seriously, Jayne, your talent knows no bounds. I mean, you made tie-dyed dolphin cookies!! Hahahahahaha. And what’s more, I’m sure they taste as good as they look. This has made my day, really. GREAT photos of some FABULOUS cookies. You are a sweetheart, you are, my dear Jayne.

    YOU MADE TIE-DYED DOLPHIN COOKIES AND I CANNOT GET OVER IT.

    Thank you, Jayne, for cheering me up in a huge way.

  2. You won’t believe this, I bought a whole load of Murano glass animals recently, and they all look just like your dolphins! Really really classy…

    You could sell them for a fortune in your etsy shop. 🙂

  3. Hahahahaha!

    It’s not all that much of a secret.  I’m assuming you mean about the tie-dyed look on some and the swirly look on others?  I just iced them with royal icing – piped the color on in lines or circles…then for the tie-dyed ones I dipped a small paintbrush in water and gently painted from the center circle outward, with just water, and then continue all the way around – going from the center circle out toward the edges.  I worked very lightly – didn’t want to make it all a puddle, I just wanted to kind of pull the colors out a bit.  I did something similar with the other dolphins, just dipping the brush in water and running it across the icing in a swirly pattern.  I didn’t have a huge game plan – I was just playing. 

    Oh, and if that’s not what you were talking about, please let me know which OTHER secret you want divulged!  🙂

  4. The Sudden Yurt Commune gets more appealing every day. These cookies are awesome! I would love to bite one of their lovely little tie-dyed tails right off.

  5. JAYNE! I’m not even worthy to look at these cookies. Forget the s’mores. These should be the official campfire snack of the SYC!

    Fabulous.

  6. Jayne, I cannot get over these cookies. I just made Frank look at them (LOOK! LOOK at these!) as I gushed over what a talent you are.

  7. Sarah,  hahahaha!  I’m so glad you like them!  I had fun making them – I love messing around like that but I don’t always get the chance to (or make the time).  Now I need to find a gluten-free cookie recipe, too, so everyone in the SYC can have some.  🙂   I’ve also got a cousin who recently discovered she can’t have gluten, so I need to find new baking recipes so I can still share with her.
