  • 6 tablespoons water
Instructions
  1. For your cookies, roll out dough and cut out bunny and carrot shapes using cookie cutters.
  2. Bake according to your recipe. Let cool completely.
  3. For the Royal Icing recipe, Beat the meringue powder, sugar & water on low speed for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until icing forms peaks.
  4. Mix in food coloring gel to get the color you want. (I use a toothpick full. A little goes a long way)
  5. This icing hardens quickly so be sure to keep the icing covered with a wet towel or place in plastic bag.
  6. Pipe orange icing onto the carrot bottoms. Let harden about 30 minutes until set.
  7. Pipe green icing onto the carrot tops. Let dry completely (I let mine harden overnight).
  8. Draw on carrot and leaf details using the orange and green edible food markers.
  9. For the bunnies, pipe on the pink icing for the ears and nose first. Let harden about 30 minutes until set.
  10. Pipe on the white icing. Let dry completely (I let mine harden overnight).
  11. Using the black edible food marker, make a black dot for the eye.
