Decorated Turkey Cookies made with a Bunny Cutter

I promised you ten turkeys in ten days that are made with ten different cookie cutters.  Are you ready for it? I hope so because here is turkey number one. It is a simple little decorated turkey cookie that is made from a cute bunny cookie cutter. His tail feathers are a bit different than other turkey cookies and that helps set him apart from the crowd.Easy Decorated Turkey Cookies made with a Cute Bunny Rabbit Cookie Cutter by thebearfootbaker.com

I hope during these next few days you will learn to look at cookie cutters and see more designs than what it was intended for. What do you see when you look at a bunny cookie cutter? Did you see a turkey? What about a tooth? Turn it upside down. Do you see the tooth now? Do you see a girl with piggy tails? What do you see? Think about it as you read this tutorial because I will ask you again later.

If you don’t have a #6 tip, you can use whatever size you have on hand. Use the tick icing to pipe a dot that is a little off centered at the bottom of the feather. Build the icing up a little and then pull it off to the side of the feather while easing up on the pressure. Give a quick little pull at the end to form a peak.
