Happy Easter! In honor of Easter I got a little creative with some Easter cookies. These are moss covered bunnies and gingham eggs.
The moss covered bunnies I made by crushing up graham crackers and mixing them with green food coloring until it was mostly green with just a bit of brown showing through. Then I iced my bunny sugar cookies with green icing to cover any gaps that might show through. I waited about 5 minutes for the icing to set up a bit then sprinkled the tops with the graham cracker mixture and pressed on the tops to make sure they were set in. I let them dry, after they dried I dusted off any excess graham cracker and piped tiny flowers along the neck of the bunnies.
Next I worked on the gingham eggs, this was a bit of an experiment because I had seen this before but had never done it, but it worked great! I bought some edible color mist and used a lined stencil. I covered the eggs in white icing and let them dry almost completely. Then I laid the stencil on top of the egg horizontally and lightly sprayed, then did it again placing the stencil vertically.
I just love how they both turned out they were so cute and of course yummy! Like I say never sacrifice flavor for presentation when you can have both.
