When a cookie design involves multiple cookies, my rule of thumb is to "keep it simple." This new HOP cookie cutter set does just that.

The letters H and P are straight-forward in design, but I applied an easy airbrush treatment to give them more added interest. The middle bunny booty cookie is also very beginner-friendly. There aren't too many steps to completing this set. In addition, it requires only 3 different colors of icing (including white), which is always a nice bonus in my book.

Here's how you can recreate this 3-piece Easter set for yourself.

Just added to the shop for the upcoming Easter season is this HOP cookie cutter set.

The cookie cutters are available in various sizes. However, for this tutorial, I'll be decorating the REGULAR size.

Templates for the HOP Cookie Set

To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template available for all the new Easter spring cookie cutter designs, including this HOP cookie set.

You can download these 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 Decorating Process

For the colors used for this HOP cookie set, you will need the following suggested colors:

Step 1

For the bunny booty middle cookie, start by flooding the entire cookie with white icing. Let that icing set up (about an hour).

Then add another layer of white icing for the feet sections. This will give the feet more dimension.

Step 2

Next add the pink foot pads on both feet.

Then fill in the cotton tail area with white icing, and immediately add nonpareil sprinkles over the icing for texture.

Step 3

For the letter pieces, begin by applying a thin layer of white icing over the parts where there is empty space, as shown. I used a flexible spatula for this step.

Let the icing set up (about an hour).

Step 4

Next, outline and fill in the letter area with colored icing. Let this icing completely dry before moving to the next step.

Finally, for added interest, I decided to airbrush a polka dot pattern on the cover. I used Americolor GEL color in white for the airbrush color. (Check out this post to see how I airbrush white color with great coverage.)

The white airbrush color doesn't really show up on the white icing of the middle spaces.

Video Tutorial

The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together below.

Here's the completed set of the three cookies.

These are the REGULAR size cookies and the fit nicely in this BRP long cookie box (12″ x 5″ x 1.5″).

The middle bunny booty design is also the same design in this 4-piece Hoppy Easter set.

It's on my list to decorate next. So stay tuned if you'd like to see those decorated cookies in the coming days!
