Martha by Mail ~ Hatching Bunny & Barnyard Hen Cutters
Here's a post worth revisiting. Enjoy!
The bunnies are given a meringue wash (meringue powder dissolved in a little water) and immediately flocked with fine sanding sugar; once dry, little noses, whiskers and ears are piped in pastel colors. The cracked eggs are flooded with pastel-hued royal icing.
The simplest of decorations requires nothing more than a few multicolored squiggles suggesting feathers. Non-pareils cover another hen, while one is given a grid of royal icing in pastel plaid.
