How to Make Bunny Slipper Cookies for a Sleepover
To celebrate the arrival of cooler weather, I decided to skip the traditional autumn leaves and work on another idea that’s been floating around in my brain…bunny slipper cookies made from a top hat cookie cutter.
The green cutter is a St. Patrick’s day design that I picked up at Hobby Lobby, while the black one is a Wilton creation and can be purchased here.
To make these cookies you will need:
- Yellow food color marker
- White piping and 20-second icing (make it on the thicker side)
- Light pink piping and flood icing
- Dark pink flood icing (I used Strawberry ProGel to create this color but you can also use this formula featuring Wilton rose)
- A small amount of black piping icing
Before decorating use a food color marker to “map out the design”. You can always skip this step, but it really takes the guesswork out of creating uniform cookies without a projector.
When the cookie is dry, finish up by using a #3 tip to pipe ears and a #1 tip for eyes and nose.
For a couple of months I’ve been considering adding alternative steps you can follow to either simplify or dress up the designs that I share. Let me know what you think, or feel free to add your own suggestions in the comment section.
Keep it simple:
- Drop black sugar pearls or non-pariel “eyes” into the wet white icing with tweezers and skip mixing another color.
- Outline the legs as one large section and pipe a dividing line after the base has dried
Make it fancy:
- Use blue petal dust to highlight the edges of the bunny slippers to make them “POP”
- Pipe a little cuff along the bottom of the pajamas before piping the ears
- Use cookie stencils to create more intricate pajama pant designs
- Use an airbrush to shade the individual popcorn kernels
