Easter Chick Plaques


With Easter around the corner, Amanda of @minimandakay shows us how to make a fun, customizable Easter chick cookie. So many color and pattern options to make this adorable cookie your own! 

*

What you’ll need:
-CookieCutterKingdom's The Corner Plaque Cookie Cutter and Easter Egg Cookie Cutter
-Your favorite sugar cookie dough recipe (CookieCutterKingdom recipe here)
-Royal icing (CookieCutterKingdom recipe here)
-Scribe Tool
-Gel food coloring (I most frequently use Americolor and Spectrum)
-Rolling pin (an adjustable pin or guides help make an even sheet of dough)
-Piping bags
-Scissors

Directions: 
If more is better and bigger is better, then using more cookies to make a bigger cookie is best, right? Yeah, I thought so.
 
Begin by outlining and flooding your plaque cookie.
  

Moving quickly while the base icing is still wet use flood consistency contrasting colors to pipe diagonal stripes across the plaque.

Drag your scribe tool perpendicularly through the lines in one direction and then going back in the other direction to create a marbled look.

Set your plaque cookie aside to dry before adding a border. While it’s drying you can start on the egg cookie. Begin by outlining and flooding the bottom of the egg. When you get ⅔ the way up the cookie continue across the cookie in an uneven zig-zag pattern to mimic a broken shell.
  

Outline and flood the negative space on the cookie to make the body of the chick.

Return to your plaque cutter. Alternate the same colors you used to pipe lines to create a beaded border with a stiff consistency icing. (For more tips about royal icing consistency, check out our royal icing post here.)

Hopping back to the chick cookie. Pipe a fun pattern on the shell. It can be as simple or complex as you like. At this time, you can also add features to the chick.

At this point, let your cookies set a few hours to dry. Once dry, apply some flood consistency icing to the back side of the egg cookie to adhere it to the plaque cookie.
  

You can personalize these sweet Easter treats for everyone in your family by adding names or using their favorite colors.

Happy Easter!
Enjoy,
Amanda
