Decorate a Cute Easter Bunny & Chick Cookie Platter
Are you ready to spruce up your Easter baking this year with a festive cookie platter full of cute bunnies and chirping chicks? This platter of homemade sugar cookies is bound to be the star of any Easter celebration. From rolling, cutting, and decorating these little delicious treats, I am here to show you exactly how you can create an impressive yet surprisingly simple Easter bunny and chick cookie platter that will have your guests hopping for seconds!
Easter Bunny & Chick Cookie Platter Cutter Set
New this spring season is this Easter bunny & chick cookie platter set. This set includes 3 cookie cutters: a chick, a bunny, and a center circle. You can purchase all 3 cookie cutters together, or as a 2-piece without the circle cutter.
(This is the same circle cutter used in all my platter sets, like this Snowflake set, Spiral Platter, and Floral Wreath, etc.)
There are two sizes available. When arranged as a platter, as shown in the example picture, the platter measures:
LARGE- 12 inches in diameter.
SMALL- 9 inches in diameter.
For this tutorial, I'll be decorating the large size.
Template for the Easter Bunny & Carrot Cookies
To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template of all of the new Easter cookie cutters, including this bunny & chick cookie platter design.
You can download all the 2023 Easter cookie templates HERE.
If you have a Kopykake or Pico projector, just print it out (or pull it up on your mobile device) and you are good to go. For those without a projector, follow the suggested steps below by tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.
The Cookie Decorating Process
For this Easter bunny and chick cookie platter, you will need the following suggested colors:
- Green royal icing (I mixed two parts Americolor Egg Yellow and one part Americolor Mint.)
- Tan icing (I mixed Americolor Taupe with a touch of Americolor Warm Brown and a touch of Americolor Electric Green.)
- Yellow icing (I mixed Americolor Egg Yellow with a touch of Americolor Taupe.)
- Light Pink icing (I used Wilton Pink.)
- White icing (I used Americolor Bright White.)
- Orange icing (I used Americolor Orange.)
- Black icing (I used Americolor Super Black.)
Let's start with the bunny cookie. Begin by filling in the lower paws sections with tan icing, and the inner ear sections with pink icing.
Let that icing crust over then fill in the face section around the eyes.
Next, fill the outer section of one of the ears, and fill in the eye details.
Then add the pink nose and complete the other ear, as shown.
Lastly, outline the paws for added dimension.
For the Easter Chick cookie, begin by filling the face section around the eyes. Let this icing set.
Then fill in the wing sections, as shown.
Next, fill in the eye details and add the lower beak.
Lastly, add the upper beak and outline the feathers and wings for added dimension.
For the final, center message cookie, begin by flooding the entire cookie with green icing. Let this icing dry completely.
In the shop is a new Happy Easter stencil you can use for the center message. Just swipe thick white royal icing over it to apply it to the cookie. The video below better illustrates how I did this.
Easter Bunny & Chick Cookie Platter Video Tutorial
The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together below.
Here's the final Easter bunny & chick cookie platter all assembled. To create this entire platter required 11 cookies-- 5 bunnies, 5 chicks, and 1 center circle cookie.
This is the large, 12" version. For the tray it's on, I like to use the 12" pizza pans from Dollar Tree. They are cheap and sturdy for transporting around.
