Fiesta Sugar Cookies {Cinco de Mayo Dessert Idea #1}

Such a fun way to emphasize the theme of your Cinco de Mayo desserts board!

It is safe to say that I am obsessed with these fiesta sugar cookies decorated with royal icing. These margarita glass, chili pepper, and cactus sugar cookies are so cute!

Don’t be intimidated by royal icing, I detail everything you need to know in my Fiesta Sugar Cookie guide.

Other common fiesta sugar cookie shapes are tacos, sombreros, pinatas, moroccos, llamas, and banjos. You can get the cookie cutter set from Amazon here.

Cinco de Mayo Cupcakes {Cinco de Mayo Dessert Idea #2}

I always try to find a balance between time-consuming desserts and quick/easy desserts for all of my dessert boards.

These Cinco de Mayo cupcakes definitely check the “quick/easy” box.

These mini cupcakes were actually leftover from my Rainbow Cupcake Cake. While the cupcakes were delicious, we couldn’t eat all 71 mini cupcakes LOL.

With just a few extra steps and ingredients, the rainbow cupcake cake quickly became cute Cinco de Mayo cupcakes:

  1. Fiesta Cupcakes
  2. Churro Cupcakes
  3. Lime Cupcakes

Fiesta Cupcakes

How To Make The Fiesta Cupcakes

Grab your mini rainbow cupcakes (cupcake recipe here). Then, sprinkle with rainbow nonpareils.

How To Make Lime Cupcakes

Grab your mini green cupcakes (cupcake recipe here). Then, add white frosting to a ziplock bag and cut the corner off of the bag. Next, create a half-circle with the white frosting. Then, add two lines to split the half-circle into thirds. Lastly, add three small lines in each lime ‘slice’.

‘Sombrero’ Cookies {Cinco de Mayo Dessert Idea #3}

These no-bake ‘sombrero’ cookies are made in 15 minutes with just three ingredients: (1) Golden Oreos, (2) white chocolate, and (3) rainbow nonpareils.

How To Make Sombrero Cookies

  1. Dip Golden Oreos in melted white chocolate. 
  2. Next, add the melted chocolate to a ziplock bag and cut the corner off of the bag.
  3. Outline each chocolate-covered Oreo with more chocolate and sprinkle with rainbow nonpareils. 
  4. Lastly, add a small amount of melted white chocolate on the bottom of a spice drop, and place the spice drop on top of the decorated Oreo.
