This post is more about a “concept” in progress – than a finished product… but I wanted to share the idea while it was fresh (and truthfully, before someone else blogged about it) I feel like each time I have a creative idea in the works, someone beats me to it.
This was not my idea although, I think I probably would have thought of it eventually. I’ve seen a few cookiers make these and obviously so has CopperGifts.com since they now make 3 different sized Bunny Bun cookie cutters. The day after I placed my order, they came out with the 3rd size – the mini-cutter which would have been perfect for these.
I know these cookies have a few issues:
#1. I cut them by hand, instead of using a cookie cutter, so they are, uh “whimsical”
#2. I didn’t not allow any drying time before handling them while I tried to take a somewhat decent photo
#3. The colors are off — between the dough, the frosting & the sugar…
HOWEVER – the point is, they are cookies not “artistic masterpieces” so just go for it!!
Anyway, the most memorable post was by SugarBelle – you can check out her blog The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle here. (Aside from the fact that she is very talented – my nickname is Sugar and my daughter’s nickname is Belle – so naturally I was drawn to her blog.) — SugarBelle has also blogged recently about using colored dough – another concept I was playing around with, since it seemed the next step after my many years of making my own play-dough which I blogged about here. Sooo, I put combined both SugarBelle’s ideas (bunny peep cookies & colored dough) and made my version of Peep “Bunny” cookies. Anyway, I think it’s a fun idea and it really doesn’t take much effort to color the dough. Thank you so much to SugarBelle for spurring my creativity!!
