Edible Easter Decor


What could be sweeter than a decoration you can eat?


Easter Cookie Ornaments





To transfer your favorite Easter image design onto a cookie,
reduce it to 65 percent of its original size on a standard color photocopier
(at any Office Depot, Kinkos, etc)
Take the smaller image to your favorite bakery where it can be reproduced with edible inks on thin, sticker-like sheets of paper made from rice, potatoes or cornstarch.


  1. Roll out store-bought or homemade sugar cookie dough to 1/4 inch thick.  For vintage postcard images, cut dough into 3 3/4 x 21/2-inch rectangles.  Use a cookie cutter to create the egg-shaped cookies

  2. Carefully punch holes for the ribbon at the top of the raw cookies with a drinking straw

  3. While the cookies are baking, cut out the images from the edible paper.  Make matching ribbon holes in the paper with a hole punch

Let cookies cool, then top them with a thin, even layer of white icing.
Peel the edible paper from its backing and gently smooth onto the cookies surface.
Allow the images to set for a few minutes, then pipe pastel-hued frosting along the edges.
Dust with edible glitter and thread with thin ribbon to hang from a whimsical feather tree for a fun centerpiece.

If you do not have a tree they look just as adorable on your favorite vintage plate.


Happy Good Friday!

Enjoy,
Sharon
