Easter Cookies

I decided to make some decorated cookies for the carers at the gym creche and for a few friends I was catching up with.

UsingĀ a bunny cutter and an egg cutter and this recipe, I firstly cut out the cookies

After cooking and cooling the cookies, I made my royal icing and piped on my white outline

I then added water to my white icing to make it runnier so that I could fill in the cookie. I coloured some of it pink for the ears and after applying the white icing, I piped the pink icing into the runny icing.

As you can see, I over-filled a few of the cookies and they spilled over the sides. This generally happens to me, so always make a few extra cookies!

Next up we outlined and filled in our egg cookies.

We decided to make polka dot eggs, so while the icing was still wet, I piped in white dots using runny icing.

I gave the bunny cookies about 4-5 hours to dry and then piped on the cheeks

I let them dry overnight and then using edible pens, drew on the rest of the bunny’s face

Last step was to package them and hand them out!

Happy Easter everyone!
