Hand-painted rainbow sugar cookies are fun and easy to make, and are perfect for a birthday, Pride celebration or just because rainbows are awesome.
June is Pride month in many cities all over the world. I had never been to a Pride celebration before moving to San Francisco three years ago. I vividly remember how joyous it was, but also how inclusive it was. Allies marched alongside their loved ones. There were coworkers and families. I could almost feel my heart swelling with happiness and there were several occasions where I was moved to tears.
Despite judgements, setbacks and threats, the LGBT community and their allies keep marching onwards. The recent shooting in Orlando has done nothing to keep us down. Instead, it has lit a fire in me and millions of others to continue to fight for equality for all people.
To fight for the right to visit loved ones in the hospital when they are ill, the right for spousal benefits and the right to celebrate love with marriage.
I look forward to a time when this is no longer an ‘issue’. When we don’t make assumptions by choosing a gender-specific pronoun, and no one fears judgement or shame when coming out. Love is love, and in celebration of that I wanted to share these hand-painted rainbow sugar cookies. They take a little bit of time, but are easy to make and perfect for your Pride celebration, birthday party or just because. Check out the video to see my technique.
For all the information you need to make these cookies, check out my previous post with recipes and instructions for working with edible food paint.
