Keep Calm and Hop On

I finally got the cookie mojo back last week and began some Easter holiday goodies! Of course I am quickly running out of time to get them all done, but I will do my best to accomplish as many as possible.

Keep Calm and Hop OnI do not own a KopyKake (yet!), so my lettering always lacks the perfection and fonts I desire. I just practice a few times on wax paper, then hold my breath and hope for the best when I start on the cookie. I usually make extras in case they turn out truly horrible, but for this design I only had enough dough for one chance!

chick in disguiseThe old Cadbury Egg commercial (“Thank you Easter Bunny! BAWK BAWK!”) gave me the idea for something like this. I used the bunny face cutter for the ear “headband” and a small egg cutter for the chick. Once the pieces are cut out of the dough, fit the two together like a puzzle, bake and ta-da! Kinda cute!

ChicksThis is my Busby Berkeley inspired cookie shot. The little basket chick was a design from last year and I still love it.

Happy Easter EggsI’m always nervous about shipping cookies with appendages, like bunny ears, so I try to come up with shapes that will hold up better. Can’t go wrong with an egg then! I made these with an Easter buffet in mind.

Happy Easter Carrots 2I find it gets a bit crazy when I try and create too many different styles at one sitting. By the time I got around to these carrots, I was done. I know they could still use a little something. Next season perhaps!

Have you started your holiday preparations for the upcoming weekend? This Bunny has a bunch of shopping to do, but not before I get in a little more baking. I attempted painting on a few cookies that I will post next time. Definitely nothing fancy! I just wanted to give it a whirl to change things up a bit. I still want to try painting gingam patterns on some eggs that I didn’t get to with this batch. Better hop to it and get the dough started!

Too predictable of a pun?

  1. All I’ve got to share at the moment are designs from last year. I’ve had so much going on in “real life”, that the cookie life has taken a back seat. Better get on it, or Easter will be here before you know it! Thanks for the cookie love!
