Cut one cookie in half.
On one half, use white icing to pipe half a cloud shape in the right-hand corner.

Repeat with the orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.
Divide the flood icing into two bowls. Keep one bowl white.
Tint the other light blue.
Spoon white flood icing into the cloud shape.
Then spoon blue flood icing into the small arch under your rainbow. Use a toothpick to spread the icing.
Set the cookie aside for about thirty minutes until the icing hardens.
Next, pipe a ring of light blue edge icing around the outer edge of the full cookie
Pipe a cloud shape on the right side with white edge icing. Spoon white flood icing into the cloud shape and blue flood icing onto the rest of the cookie.
While the flood icing is still wet, place the rainbow upright on top.
Match up the clouds on both cookies.
Cover the bottom of a chocolate-covered caramel with yellow edge icing.
