HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE!!
Oh, I wish you could see the happiness in my face when I say that! This Winter has been way too cold!! My girls and I are so ready for sunny days, and I am sure you are too!
Well, it's that time of year again where I get to enjoy baking and decorating bunnies, Easter eggs, baby chicks and carrot cookies to fill the little Easter baskets for my little girls to give away at school and daycare.
Easter is just a few weeks away and it's time to start baking and decorating cookies for it. The Cookie Cutter Company has plenty of adorable Easter and spring cookie cutters to help you get started.
This particular 4pc Easter Cookie Cutter Set has the basic Easter cookie cutters that are perfect for you to use to create some adorable Easter Cookies.
Now, let's get all the supplies we need ready, and start decorating these fun and colorful cookies!
You Will Need The Following Supplies:
Decorating the Easter Chick Cookie
(I adjusted this cookie a little bit before baking it because I wanted a more rounded looking chick)
1: Start by outlining and flooding the cookie with yellow royal icing. Then let the cookie dry overnight or for at least a few hours.
2: Using Tip #2 and stiff royal icing, make a pink bow and sprinkle it with the pink sanding sugar. Remove the excess sugar with a small brush.
3: Use Tip #1 to pipe the legs and eye with black icing, and then the beak and wing with the orange icing.
Decorating the Bunny Face Cookie
1: Outline and flood the Bunny. Then let it dry completely.
2: Once the bunny face is completely dry, you can add the face details. The more creative the better!!
Decorating the Easter Egg Cookie
Now you can just have fun with these cookies! I love this particular Easter Egg cookie cutter because it's really big and allows you plenty of canvas to play around with your designs.
To make the Easter Egg look like an "open egg", outline and flood just the top and bottom part of the cookie. Make a few pink dots using pink flooding icing in a squeeze bottle.
You can then draw the chick's body on the egg. I tend to have a body parts proportion problem when making cookies, so for me it's easier to draw an outline of the body using an edible marker and then just fill in the icing in the sections of each body part.
Once the little chick is completely dry, add the beak, eyes and wing details.
I really like sanding sugar, can you tell? So I piped big dots of pink icing and sprinkled them with pink sanding sugar to give the egg another dimension.
Decorating the Carrot Cookie
1: Outline and flood the carrot with orange icing.
2: While the icing is still wet, use a thin brush to paint a few distress lines along the carrot using the orange color gel straight from the bottle. No need to mix.
3: Pipe the leaves last and then you are good to go!
