Pearls in Oyster Cookies for a Mermaid-themed Birthday Party


Pearls in Oyster Cookies

Pearls in Oyster Cookies made with Nilla cookies, lilac icing in between two biscuits and a pearly hard candy ball for the pearl

I made these for my daughter's birthday party, and they were a huge hit! It's not
really a recipe so much as assembling parts but turned out to be quite cute.


  • "Nilla" or other small, round cookies
  • Icing
  • Food coloring (I used a violet purple)
  • White or pearly hard candy balls.


Mix coloring into icing for the desired color.

Use a piping bag to pipe icing onto one cookie so that it's slightly thicker on one side.

Place a second cookie on top, angled like an opening shell.

Lastly, place one pearl candy onto the icing.


Yes, it's that easy and the birthday girl and her friends loved it.
