DIY Watercolor Heart Cookies

The Sweet Escape

Food is art and art is food. Also it’s just really fun to play with your food! These watercolour heart cookies make for the perfect handmade gift and treat for your valentine sweet.



  • Sugar cookies
  • Icing
  • Food colouring
  • Brushes

How to make it

Step 1: Ice your cookies – a.ka. your canvases and let them chill in the fridge until the icing has hardened

Step 2: You’ll need some of your favourite hues of food colouring and some brand new brushes. I picked these up at the dollar store. You just need a small drop of each colour then add some water and have fun mixing your palette.

Step 3: Then it’s time to channel your inner artist and start making some delicious and beautiful art from your heart.
