Easter Cookies

Share it!   

Managed to squeeze in some Easter cookie decorating and I have a wee bit of an update.

I’ve had so many emails asking about the KopyKake drawing projector, I think it’s about time I put together a tutorial!

So, for all those who asked, just thought I’d let you know that I’m beginning to work on one. (Update:  The tutorial is ready; you can find it HERE).

I’d like it to be detailed and comprehensive with lots of visuals, showing a step by step how to use the “ever-so-pretty” contraption. *

For now, here’s a little photo slide show of one of these Easter cookies I made using the KopyKake projector:

After letting the outline dry, I flooded the cookie with the same consistency royal icing.

And c’est tout!  That’s all!

I decided to try two different ways of doing these cookies; one with a base of royal icing and one without.

Which do you like better?

Of course I had to do a few cookies with disco dust!   Click here for a little tutorial on how to apply disco dust to your decorated cookie.

If you’d like to try some of these cookies or others, you can find the recipes I used here:

Enjoy decorating and Hoppy Easter!

    I am having a problem with my icing colors bleeding into each other, what could be the problem? I am using royal icing, and it doesn’t seem to matter if I use thick or thin consistency, it still bleeds. Also, I do allow at least 12 hours of drying time in between colors. Can you help me? Thanks so much!
