Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies




Last year I went to a fun cookie decorating class at Petite Party Studio and learned a few tricks with making sugar cookies and decorating them. Ever since then I have been hooked on decorating cookies. Unfortunately it is one of those things that I like to do when my kids aren't around. Most of my cooking I do with music going and my kids running wild around me. Decorating sugar cookies I like to do in the quiet with no kids running wild around me. Maybe its a little therapeutic for me. Either way I love it! 

These bunny cookies are a good cookie to start with. There is only a few simple steps and the outcome is super cute! I only did flood frosting because I didn't want to make 2 different types for only 12 small cookies but the taste is better with 2 kinds of frosting. The tutorial for both those frostings is here

So you can either just make the Glaze Icing like I did or if you are doing more cookies then make the Flood and Royal Icing. Here are the steps for the bunny cookies. The shape of your cookie cutter will make the instructions defer slightly. But atleast you will get the main point.

First, outline all of the cookies with the glaze icing

Then fill them all in and let them dry for 30 minutes


For the rest of the tutorial head over



Glaze Icing: (base/flooding)
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup milk
4 cups powdered sugar
food coloring-optional

Mix all ingredients on low until incorporated. You may need to add more powdered sugar (1/4 cup at a time) if the consistency is too runny or if it is too thick add more milk a Tablespoon at a time.

Royal Icing:
2 egg whites
4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
food coloring-optional

Mix all ingredients on low for 7 minutes. If the mixture is too thick add water a teaspoon at a time until it is a smooth paste consistency. Then you can add food coloring or divide is small bowls and add different colors to each bowl.
