for Easter: peeking bunny cookies


“Is it Easter yet? Is it Easter yet?” I’ve heard this every morning since Valentine’s Day.  Soon, my darling four-year old, soon. Look, I even spotted the Easter bunny peeking around the corner.


To make these, I cut out 2 1/2-inch squares from my cookie dough. Made my royal icing and tinted pink, green and blue with Americolor Soft Gel Pastes (Electric Pink, Electric Green and Sky Blue). Then I outlined and flooded the background and let dry overnight. I prepared white fondant, rolled it out, cut out 1-inch circles, then cut those in half for the heads. I used scissors to cut out the ears. I attached them to the cookies with light corn syrup. Then I used edible writers to draw the eyes and pink in the ears. Easy peasy! I even bent one of the ears forward.


Have you seen any bunnies lurking around your house?

    These are the cutest cookies. I think I’m going to make them for my grandson. He can’t have chocolate so cookies are going to be in his basket and these are adorable. Love them.

    So cute! I love that they are simple and modern but still somehow have a very spring- frilly adorableness (I’m not even sure that’s a word).

    I think it’s hard even for an adult not the rush the holidays since Easter stuff has been out in the stores since the beginning of February. : )

    These are adorably cute. Aren’t kids cute with their daily reminders?

    That is almost too cute for me to handle.

    Ohh these are so cute! I haven’t tried using fondant on cookies yet, but it’s great to know that you can combine it with using RI as well.

    Thank you everybody! Love how much the word “cute” was used!! Yep, Sarah, since I like the taste of RI better than fondant, I do that a lot, using the fondant more sparingly.

    I just wanted to let you know that I made this weekend and I am in LOVE! This was my first attempt at flooding AND making/using fondant, so they aren’t nearly as cute as yours! But, I’m so proud of them! You are too amazing for words!
    Thank you for sharing this! I’d love to send you a photo of my cookies.
