Ingredients

Instructions

  • Prepare your frosting according to the recipe above. (or use store-bought. I won't tell!) Color it with your desired colors.  I used Wilton violet gel coloring for the purple, and teal with just a teeny bit of kelly green for the turquoise/teal cookies. 
  • Add a decorating tip to a pastry bag (I used a Wilton 2D. I love how ruffly it made it look). Place the frosting in the bags and set aside.
  • Lay out half the cookies on a baking sheet.
  • Pipe frosting onto each of the cookies. 
  • Place second cookie on top at an angle to look like an opening oyster or clam.
  • Add a pearl Sixlet to the front so that it looks like it's sitting in the oyster's mouth. 
  • Gently cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Let come to room temperature for about an hour before serving.  

Notes

1.  You can use any medium-sized cookie, including store-bought.  Or if you'd rather do homemade, you can cut out some seashell shaped cookies with this sugar cookies recipe that holds its shape when baked! Or check out all my favorite cookie recipes here to find one that you love too!
2.  Here's a one-stop (Amazon) shop for all your supplies.  I wanted to link to what I used, as well as my favorite decorating bags if you need some.
If you make a purchase from the links below, I get a small commission which funds my coffee needs to keep this site running :)
Have fun! And be sure to post your finished creations on Instagram with #TheGraciousWife so I can see your finished creations!
