Easter Egg Cookie Tutorial by Sweet Sugarbelle

I’m so excited about our guest post today!  Callye is the owner and cookie genius behind Sweet Sugarbelle.  She made my daughter Spongebob and Patrick cookies last year and I actually saved two because I couldn’t bear to eat them (but I did manage to eat like a dozen of them…)  Welcome Callye!

 

Lots of people think that they cannot decorate cookies, but I’m here to tell you that you can! It’s easy to make beautiful cookies using the simplest of techniques!

Since Easter is on the way, we’re going to make simple but beautiful polka dot Easter egg cookies.

Begin by baking a batch of your favorite cut out cookies. If you don’t have a recipe, click HERE for mine. It’s delicious and easy enough for a beginner to make.

To decorated these cookies you will need:

  • Piping and flood icing in your choice of colors
  • white flood icing

For my royal icing recipe click HERE. If you need help with coloring and preparing royal icing, click HERE.

To begin outline and flood your cookies. For help with this, click HERE. Be sure to only work on one or cookies at a time until you get the hang of it. You have to work a bit quickly.

Immediately after flooding use the white flood icing to drop dots into the wet icing. This is called the wet-on-wet technique.

At this point let the cookies dry for eight to ten hours and that’s all there is to it!

See, I told you it was easy!

 

If you’d like to learn more about cookie decorating, you can visit me anytime at The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle. I hope to see you there. Happy baking!

    Love these, and love the colors! Wet-on-wet is so easy and super addicting. Polka dots are the best, and so clean and classy looking!
