This colorful balloon cake is a brilliant idea for your next birthday bash or special celebration. Icing and licorice make wonderful strings for these tasty balloons made of frosted sugar cookies or snickerdoodles.
Frost your baked and cooled sheet cake with vanilla frosting.
Put a very small amount of frosting in a bowl. Add food coloring, mixing as you add, to obtain the desired shade. Repeat in additional bowls for each balloon color you wish to create.
Frost the cookies and add to the cake.
Use licorice strings or icing in a tube to create strings for the balloons.
