My niece Katie and I made these sweet bunny and chick Easter cookies the other day. We think they are quite lovely if we do say so ourselves. It was the first time we had decorated with Royal Icing and let me just say it is not as easy as it appears to be on the You Tube tutorials. We used my sugar cookie recipe that I posted on in December (remember my frosting fiasco) and as for the Royal Icing recipe we went to the Sweetopia website.
We had so much fun decorating these adorable confections that our next project will be nautical inspired cookies for the Fourth of July cookout hosted by Katie's mother who just happens to be my sister. Katie lives seconds from the ocean so lobsters and sailboats along with some patriotic flags seem to fit into the theme of Fourth of July and the ocean at the end of their street.
