The Saturday before Easter Sunday would not be complete without making little flower cookies and coloring eggs. I started early in the day with the spritz cookies. The recipe I used is from Remarkable Home and I found it on Pinterest. When I first came across this post, it was cuteness overload. The Artist has sandwiched the cookies onto pop sticks and formed them into a bouquet. Intent on using my new bunny platter, I had no intention of going to bouquet route, but it was certainly adorable.
With my handy spritz cookie press and the basic cookie recipe from Remarkable Home I was able to create these festive flowers:
And they are tasty. The cookies are all brushed with a light glaze. The pink and orange cookies have colored sprinkles; the green and blue do not. The general consensus is that the sprinkle cookies taste better, however the cookies without sprinkles look better. Maybe I went a little overboard on the sprinkling.
After I decorated all the flower cookies I placed them on the Garden Bunny Cake Stand from Pier One that I purchased on a recent shopping trip. Isn’t it cute
This evening I drafted my daughters to do the egg coloring for me. Stephanie and Amanda took care of the metallic and tie dye Easter eggs and did a great job. We decorated 18 but my math/division skills were lacking at the time so we ended up with 10 metallic and 8 tie dye. My bad. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the time with my girls.
