Woodland Easter Cookies
I live in the woods and love it because I get to take walks and get inspired by the things I see in nature. The other day I saw a piece of wood that had some moss on it and I got inspired to make these Woodland Easter Cookies so I grabbed some cutters and this is what I came up with.
By using an airbrush gun, a stencil and a few royal icing flowers, it is easy to make a unique set with just a few colors of icing because your airbrush gun does all the hard work for you.

Woodland Easter Cookies Video:
- Did you know you can airbrush wet icing?
- I added some to the wet icing in the video and it’s really fun to watch the icing wiggle as you airbrush.
- Well, you will see it in the video so pay attention to the brown outline.
Woodland Easter Cookies Tutorial:
- Begin by outlining the rabbit cookie with the tan icing because that will be a good base color for the wood.
- Next, flood the rabbit cookie with the tan icing and let the cookies dry overnight so it’ll be easier to airbrush.
- Once the icing on the cookies have dried completely, it is time to stencil. I love the Stencil Genie because it makes life so much easier. It’ll hold your stencil perfectly and your airbrushed edges will be nice and sharp. If you don’t have one, you can use magnets to hold your stencil in place and The Cookie Countess has several great video tutorials here.
- Once you place your stencil in the Stencil Genie, get ready to airbrush.
- Hold the airbrush gun several inches away from the cookie when you begin to add the airbrush color and gently spay.
- Then, remove the stencil and airbrush around the edge to give the cookie a little more interest.
- After you add the edge and airbrush it, pipe a little line to look like a bow because all little bunnies need a bow.
- Then add a royal icing flower and let it dry.
- You can repeat this pattern on other cookies to make a fun woodland set. I like the wood grain look and by adding some moss to the carrots gives your set a fun look with a pop of color. I learned about the moss technique from Mike at Semi-Sweet when he made his set of Realistic Moss Cookies. It’s one of my favorite sets ever because it has amazing texture and the color.
This is the second set of Easter Cookies I’ve made where the same pattern has been on almost all of the cookies because it’s a simple way to make a beautiful platter of sugar cookies. The Zebra Easter Cookies was the other set that used the same pattern throughout the platter because a zebra pattern is amazing. There’s something about a black and white zebra cookie that makes me happy!
Using the same pattern is a fun fast way to make a platter of cookies with a unique look. It’s a time saver since you don’t have to mix so many icing colors. It helps make clean up pretty easy because we all want an easy clean-up process, don’t we?
I have one more set Easter cookies to share that has one pattern carried out through the set. So I’ll be back soon to share them with you.
