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!

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!
Once I was done making the cookies for the party, I had a few leftover that I played with. I really like how these “swoop” designs turned out too. And SO easy.
Hope everyone has a great Easter!

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…
