Decorating Easter Cookies & Cupcakes

 Easter Egg Cookies

You Need:

  • Baked and cooled sugar cookies (see Recipes)
  • Easter Egg Cookie Cutter (we used our 4-inch)
  • Easter Bunny Cookie Cutter
  • 1 batch Royal Icing (see Recipes)
  • Food gel paste colors you desire
  • Fondant (purchase at craft store or make your own)
  • Edible Quins and Pearls

Supplies Needed: Small spatula, writing tip #2 or #3, disposable decorator bags, fondant roller, orange Starburst (for chick beak)

  1. Make cookie dough recipe. Cool in the refrigerator for 2 or more hours. When ready to use, take out of the refrigerator. Roll cookie dough out on a floured board with a rolling pin. Continue to dust rolling pin with flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Using cookie-cutter - cut out egg shapes.
  2. Bake cookies as directed on recipe. Allow cookie to cool before decorating. While cookies are cooling, make the royal icing or roll out fondant.

Royal Icing Decorating:

  1. After making royal icing, create the colors you desire by adding food gel paste and mix well. Royal icing dries fast so keep your bowl of icing covered at all times with a wet paper towel or saran wrap.
  2. When ready to decorate, fill a decorator bag with a #3 or #4 tip and desired color of royal icing. Carefully outline the cookies with the icing to create a seal around the cookie. Once this border outline is dry, you will be able to spread a layer of icing inside the border to create a beautiful top layer of your cookie.
  3. Using spatula or knife, spread a layer of desired color icing on the top of the cookie. Allow drying before creating designs.
  4. Using some of my designs, create your own cookie designs using a variety of icing colors and the #3 or #4 tip.
  5. Adorn cookies with edible quins and sprinkles. Allow to dry before stacking or packaging.

Fondant Decorating:

  1. Color fondant with colors you desire. We used yellow for the back of the chick egg cookie and violet for back of bunny cookie.
  2. Roll our fondant to desire thickness. We use corn starch to prevent sticky fondant. Cut the desired shapes with cookie cutters. We cut a yellow egg shape and white egg shape for the chick egg cookie cutter. We cut a viole egg shape and white bunny shape for bunny cookie.
  3. To create the chick, use a sharp knife to cut out a cracked egg look. Using water, brush on backs of fondant pieces to adhere to the cookie and fondant pieces.
  4. Adorn with quins. To make chick nose, roll out orange starburst and cut a triangle shape. Lay onto fondant.
