COOKIE CUTTER

I don’t own a basket cutter and so I made a basket shape from a large ice cream cone cutter. I trimmed the bottom with a bench scrapper.

EASTER BUNNY BASKET COOKIES

Start by dividing bottom/ basket into 3 sections. Then take the template and trace the outlines on a cake with edible marker.

Flood bottom and top basket section with 20 second consistency brown royal icing. Let 2 sections crust and then flood the middle section.

Ice the bunny head with 20 second white icing and let crust.

Make the ears, start with white 20 second icing and then immediately flood the centers with pink. Use the needle to shape the icing while still wet. Let dry.

Apply a small amount of green icing around the face and attach decorating Easter Sprinkles.

Use Pink Color/Petal Dust and dry food paint brush to add color to the cheeks. To create shading on the basket, use brown edible marker.

Using a marker darken the basket grooves. Then with a lightly damp paint brush blend the marker lines in.

Make the rope basket handle with brown royal icing. Outline the ear with piping consistency royal icing.
