See this adorable little Easter gift? That was my inspiration for this yummy treat! Purchase one at Hallmark. Photo from hallmark.com
After finding my inspiration, I drew up a quick sketch to model my cookie after.
- I began by outlining the cracked egg shell. Then I placed the sprinkles randomly on the white.
- Once the shell dried, I filled in the middle with yellow icing and added two black candy sprinkles for eyes.
- After the yellow icing dried, I painted on his mouth using a toothpick and orange icing. And finally using a paintbrush dipped in a mix of meringue powder and water and then the pink edible glitters.
There I am decorating my cookies! Kristina helped me too which made it go much faster! It's always nice to have a helper.
There they are all nicely packaged in a bed of grass!
Then another layer of packaging!
There I am with my proud and joy! It's been awhile since I've made sugar cookies and boy was Kristina ever happy I did. They are one of her favorites of course! She stole several and hid them to ensure she wasn't left out. I packaged these darling little hens up in individual bags and then in a see-through box to give as gift. Happy early Easter & happy baking!
