This Easter Bunny Cookies decorating tutorial is courtesy of our contributor Cherylin…With Valentine’s Day behind us, it’s time to start thinking about Easter! Did you know that Easter this year falls on April 1st? Yep, Easter and April Fool’s Day on the same day this year. That should make for some interesting Easter egg hunts! I’m not big on pranks so I probably won’t be planning any jokes on April 1st but I can guarantee that I will be eating a lot of Easter treats! Do you make your own Easter treats or load up on chocolates from the store? For the DIY bakers, here’s a cute Easter Bunny Cookies decorating tutorial perfect for your special celebrations.
Easter Bunny Cookies – What You’ll Need:
- egg shaped cookie cutter (mine is from the 101 Wilton Cookie Cutter Set)
- 3 – #2 tip for purple and white icings
- 2 – #1 tip for black and pink icings
- 5 pastry bags and couplers
- Wilton purple, black and pink gel food coloring
- paint brush
- CK Rainbow Disco Dust
- white sanding sugar
Using your favorite cookie recipe, bake egg-shaped cookies using an egg cutter.
Once the cookies are baked and cooled, prepare the icing. I love Sweetopia’s. Note that 1 batch of icing covers about 3-4 batches of my cookie recipe. The icing recipe can be halved or even quartered depending on your needs.
Seperate the icing, delegating 3 larger portions of icing for light purple, dark purple and white then a much smaller portion for each the black and pink. You’ll have 5 separate icings here: light purple, dark purple, white, pink and black.
Color the icing, and thin the purples and white to 20 second icing, as explained by Sweetsugarbelle.
Take one shade of purple icing then outline and fill in the egg shape.
While still wet, dip a brush into the Disco Dust and tap the brush over the cookie so the glitter falls evenly. I love the rainbow dust because it can be used on all colors of icing to make it look glittery, rather than investing in each individual colored glitter.
Allow the glittered base to dry and then layer on the ears in the same shade of purple.
While still wet, pipe the white inner ear details over the purple ears.
Using the black icing, pipe on the eyes, nose and mouth. I love adding the eyelashes!
Dab some pink icing on the cheeks then pipe the whiskers on top in black.
Pipe the tail in white then sprinkle white sanding sugar on the tail while wet. Discard excess onto a sheet of paper or coffee filter so that it can be reused later.
