As I’ve mentioned a few times before, Scarlet is super into baking. She starts a baking class tomorrow, she watches all the baking championship shows on Food Network, and she wants to own a baking business. At age 9! Whether or not that’s possible, I do know that it’s been fun trying new things with her – like Royal Icing – and like fondant. Love it or hate it – it’s a key to gorgeousness, and especially this time of year! And it’s super fun to play with. I love sculpting.

Easter Egg Sugar Cookies:

What You Need:

Your favorite sugar cookie dough (we used an instant mix)
8-9 oz. yellow fondant
4-5 oz. pink fondant
3-4 oz. purple fondant
Egg cookie cutter (about 2.5 inches long and 2 inches at its widest part)

Yields: One dozen decorated sugar cookies

What You Do:

1 – First, sprinkle flour on a clean working surface and then coat a rolling pin with flour.

2 – On the coated surface, roll out your sugar cookie dough until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.

3 – Using your egg-shaped cookie cutter, cut out 12 eggs from your cookie dough. Save the rest of the cookie dough (if any!) in plastic wrap and refrigerate for your next recipe!

4 – Then, bake in a pre-heated oven, according to the cookie’s directions.

5 – Once the cookies have baked, allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.

6 – Roll out your fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Using the same egg-shaped cookie cutter, cut out one dozen egg-shaped fondant pieces. You will want 12 of them.

7 – Press one egg-shaped fondant onto each cookie.

8 – Roll out pink fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Using a paring knife, cut out strips, about ½ an inch wide and 3 inches long.

9 – Place on pink strip on each cookie, on a slight curve. Trim any excess.

10 – Roll out purple fondant, about ¼ of an inch thick. Using Wilton tip #11, cut out 60 purple fondant pieces.

11 – Place 5 purple circles on each cookie, just above the pink stripe. I recommend starting with the middle circle and working your way out – this ensures that the circles look even and centered.

12 – Lastly, serve and enjoy!

    1. I generally have neither, so I delegate the heck out of it to my family! They have it in droves. Actually I do have a very steady hand, which is nice for photography. I do not have patience.
