Easter Dinosaur Egg Cookies by claremanson Easter Dinosaur Egg Cookies by claremanson
Egg shaped sugar cookies with coloured icing.

All the details were decorated using toothpicks dipped into the various coloured icing, I find it much easier to control with a bit of practice than a big piping bag for such tiny details.

Recipe for cookies from the BBC [link] as I have said before it's the best cookie recipes I have ever used for cookies needing to keep its shape for shapes.

This was a three in one baking session! I really wanted to make some Easter Egg cookies with some leftover cookie dough I had in the freezer from my last baking session that needed using up. At the same time I wanted to try out some of my new food colouring paste I bought for my youngest daughters birthday next month. Finally my eldest daughter brought home Diamond The Dinosaur for the weekend (the class toy, each child takes in turns to take home!) so I thought I would theme the cookies on him, he is a green dinosaur that wears stripey blue PJ's.

That's it now for Easter baking until the weekend when I try a recipe by the wonderful :iconcakecrumbs:

Some more Easter baking ideas for you.

I'm so in love with this photo. I not entirely sure why but the way you set it out with the toothpicks and the cups of colouring just really grabs me. It's so beautiful.

I didn't even think to use them until I had used up all my utensils during baking and only had toothpicks left to mix the icing with!

What kind of icing do you use for these cookies, do you have a recipe for it or is it store bought.
Reply
:iconclaremanson:
claremanson Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
icing/confectioners/powdered sugar mixed with a little water until you get the consistency you want then add a few drops of food colouring paste until you get the right colour :)

Great idea. I think you know I like dinosaurs anyway but it's a nice twist on Easter eggs. Diamond the Dinosaur sounds like a nice idea too. Definitely something kids would love.
