Mermaid Tail Cookies

Bring a touch of enchantment to your Barbie party food ideas and beach party with these mesmerizing Mermaid Tail Cookies.

First, the key to making these cookies is to have the right cookie cutter.

Here is my favorite Mermaid Tail Cookie Cutter that I purchased from Amazon.

Use your favorite sugar cookie dough.  Roll out the dough start cutting. 

Next, here is a tip: 

If your dough is sticky.  Add some flour to the surface before rolling it out.  In addition, it does also help to put the dough in the freezer for 30 minutes before cutting it.  The cold helps to harden the butter, keeping the cookie shape.

Decorate the sugar cookies with royal icing, mini pearls, and edible glitter.

These cookies will also pair well with a mermaid theme.  If you like mermaids, check out out post on Mermaid Party Food ideas. In addition, these cookies are great for an ocean themed party as well.  Little girls will love these ocean princess inspired cupcakes.

Ocean Punch Barbie Food

To beat the summer heat and quench your guests’ thirst, serve up a refreshing Ocean Punch.

Here is what you need to make Ocean Punch:

Sprite or Water (clear beverage)

Blue Food Coloring


Swedish Fish

Ice Cubes

How to Assemble the Ocean Punch:

These are to be made upon service.  The longer the drink sits, it begins to change colors.

Equally important, when preparing the blue liquid, use a clear carbonated beverage. Hence, this will give the drink some bubbles which is great for the theme.

1. Mix blue food coloring into the liquid until it is at its desired ocean color.  Mix this before pouring into the glasses. Set aside

2. Use clear glasses to assemble.  Add nerds to the bottom of the cup to look like sea rocks.

3. Add ice cubes to the glass.

4. Tuck the Swedish Fish on the sides of the cup so you can see them.

5. Add the blue liquid.  Now you have your ocean in a cup!

Garnish the glasses with colorful drink umbrellas to add a fun and ‘beachy’ touch to your Barbie food table.
