Easy Easter Egg Decorated Cookies

Share it!   


Today’s post is short and sweet – eggzactly like the Easter cookies I’m sharing with you today. (Sorry, couldn’t resist).

The nice thing about these ones, is that they’re simple to make.

For most of them I did a ‘wet-on-wet’ icing technique, where I applied the bottom coat of icing and the the next layer right away.

This one dots using a #2 tip…

Marbling by dragging a toothpick through the white dots, towards the center…

Or marbling lines, like the large egg in the basket, below:

This last one was made by piping wet-on-dry icing lines

They were made for the on-line magazine My Little Jedi. I was thrilled to be asked to contribute to the Autumn issue (Australian).

Happy decorating!

    Those colours are so pretty, how do you achieve the pastel shade? Less icing dye or is it a specific shade of dye, if that makes sense. Beautiful as always!

    Hi I just made some of the cookies with the flowers where you drag a toothpick thru to marble them and I had trouble with the icing drying by the time I had piped all the dots for the flowers. I took about 15 seconds to pipe the dots. Should I just practice to be able to do it faster or is it an issue with my icing consistency? I did the 10 second test w/ the knife and it was about 7 seconds.

    Hi @ dorothy: Yes, you’ve got it! You can try practicing to pipe faster, you can make the icing a bit runnier (but make sure you have a dry outline to hold the icing in before you flood it). Hope that helps!
