Easy Easter Eggs & Bunnies

I have been doing cookies pretty much non-stop since Christmas. Soo I decided to go with an easy design for my Easter cookies. 

I absolutely love how they turned out! 

 I outlined and iced all of them in plain white. This alone saved me so much time! 

The bunnies I reoutlined once they were dry, and dipped in rainbow non-pareils.   

I normally don’t like bunny cookies but this shape is so adorable and it’s only about 2 1/2 inches tall. Simple yet still festive and fun!

For the eggs I wanted a speckled look. I mixed food coloring with a few drops of lemon juice (normally I’d use vodka but I didn’t have any). 

  

Then used a straight edge paintbrush and a toothpick to “flick” coloring all over the cookies. 

  

I did both pink and blue and I’m kind of obsessed with how cute they are!

  

Hope everyone has an amazing Easter weekend!

Lacy Easter Egg Cookies

Made these for a friend’s mom for a get-together.

Even though they are pretty detailed, they didn’t take a ton of time to do. Filling the eggs with a solid color and only using one color to pipe with saves a TON of time.

Each cookie is totally unique. I just made up the designs as I went, there was no template that I followed. Doing this also makes it more fun!

Easter Cookies

I love Easter colors!

The butterflies are a new cutter I bought recently. Much cuter than the round-winged Wilton butterflies I had before.

I wanted to make only eggs, but my friends (who I do a cookie decorating party with) wanted other shapes too…)

I love sprinkles. It’s like glitter. Makes everything better.

The rest were done with stencils and Wilton color spray.

I icing them solid white…

Then layed out the stencil on top (sorry no picture)…

Then went outside because the color spray flies everywhere… and kept spraying until it got a nice dark color. Waited a few minutes, then removed the stencil to find these beauties!

I bought my stencil on Amazon. This paticular one can be found here.

And this is why my husband does not help me decorate…

…and yes there is a “base coat” of sprinkles under the icing…
