So, after three days of nearly nonstop Easter cookie immersion I am happy to report that I am DONE (and only slightly insane…)! I’m going to do a post on everything later in the week, but today I wanted to share a little how-to for making bunny cookies. For these particular bunnies, I went with the “as found in nature” look – very simple but extremely cute!
First (if you’re me) you start with a crap-load of bunny cookies…
Take your white royal icing and fill in the area where the bunny’s tail goes.
Next, flip your bunny over and dip his (or her – we don’t discriminate here) tail into a bowl of white Nonpareils.
You want to do this part first because you don’t want the Nonpareils to stick anywhere but the tail. After the tail is looking nice and cottony you can outline the rest of the bunny.
At this point you should add a little water to your icing so that it spreads easily and then simply flood in the outlined area with the icing. Once that is dry, outline again adding a little detail on the ears and feet and then give bunny an eye and a nose and you’re done! I used edible marker for the eye and pink royal icing for the nose.
I also had a few requests to put names on the cookies, so here is what one of those looks like!
Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! Personally, I’m exhausted!
