These cookies were inspired by an Easter card I found in my keepsake box. One of my favorite tools
for inspiration are cards I have kept (I have cards going back to high school).
I loved how the bunny is barely poking his head, checking the scenery!
You will be amazed how simple these cookies are to create.

You will want your icing to be freshly beaten (if you have icing from prior place
the icing back into your standing mixer and beat until you reach off consistency).
Dried Albumen Royal Icing Recipe:
907 Confectioners Sugar Powder, sifted
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or almond extract
30 grams dried albumen
150 grams/5/8- cup Luxe water
Add the dried albumen to luke warm water and mix well.
Using the paddle of your standing mixer place mixed dried albumen and confectionary sugar in mixing bowl of the standing mixer, stir with a grease-free spatula just to incorporate. Add extract and mix on the lowest speed until ingredients are combined. Scrape bowl down as needed. Mix for 10-20 minutes on medium-low speed. Mix until icing forms peaks and doesn’t lose its shape. If the icing appears too thin add more powdered sugar; if icing appears too thick add more water.
Cover icing in an air tight container. The icing will keep for up to 7 days in a dark cool place, DO NOT PLACE IN THE REFRIGERATOR.

You can pipe your toothpick roses days ahead..I keep a container of toothpick roses in a variety of colours. Anytime you have extra royal icing pipe roses, blossoms, sweet peas, and ranunculus.
The flowers will keep for a long time.

These cookies are fairly easy to decorate and are awesome for using your basic
royal icing skills!
