Edible Olympic rings

you will need:

  • A mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • A few smaller bowls
  • Baking trays
  • Whisk
  • Sieve


  • 350g plain flour
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 200g butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • Icing sugar
  • Red, blue, yellow and black food colour
  • Water


  1. Preheat the oven to (bake) and grease or line the baking tray.
  2. In the large add the butter and sugar. Beat together with the wooden spoon until light and creamy.
  3. In a smaller bowl, break the eggs and whisk together with the vanilla essence. Pour the beaten eggs into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir together.
  4. Sieve in the flour, then slowly mix together until smooth.
  5. Your cookie dough is now ready to be shaped into rings. Use and roll the dough into long ‘worms’, then loop these around to form ring shapes.
  6. Assemble your rings on the baking tray and bake for about 15 minutes.
  7. While baking, prepare the icing. In a small bowl, combine a few drops of colour, 2-3 heaped dessert-spoonfuls of icing sugar and a couple drops of water. Mix to form a thick icing. Repeat for each of the Olympic ring colours (use the yellow and blue colour to make the green).
  8. Once cooked, they should still feel a little soft, and allow to cool before decorating.
  9. Once cool, ice the rings using a butter knife or the back of a teaspoon.
  10. finally, arrange in order on a plate and enjoy while watching New Zealand athletes go for gold.
