How to by Debbie Thorne
Suitable for – Beginners
Decorating time – Two hours
1. Allow the cookies to cool completely before decorating.
2. Roll the icing to a half centimetre thickness and cut egg shapes using a cookie cutter.
Top Tip!…Lightly dust the work surface with icing sugar or corn flour to prevent sticking.
3. Moisten the reverse of the shape with a small amount of water (be sparing!) and apply to the cookie. Run a dry finger around the edge of the icing to ‘polish’ it into a rounded shape.
4. Decorate as required. Add a white ‘shell’ and writing icing features for the chick, or press in sugar pearls and add coloured writing icing dots for the patterned cookies.
Top Top!…Use a dot of writing icing to attach sugar flowers.
