I could say I was making them for my chicks homecoming, (how cute would that be) but I really made them to try out for an order I have coming up.
Chick cookie cutter or template
#2 Decorating tip
Black Dragees for the eyes (or black icing)
Sanding Sugar – pastel yellow
I used India Tree brand found at Williams-Sonoma. It’s fine in texture and light in color.
Royal Icing Colors~
Black (if not using dragees)

Sugar Cookie Recipe and Instructions
Perfect Consistency Royal Icing Recipe and Instructions
Outline the chicks with a #2 tip in orange icing, making cute little feet.
Sprinkle with sanding sugar and let set until dry.
For presentation ~
Fill a small bowl, basket or add a very small bunch to a cello bag with Easter Grass.
I love this shredded paper from Williams-Sonoma.
A little goes a long way and it puffs up big time when you open the bag.
Enjoy your week.
This mother hen will surely be enjoying hers!
