Easter Musical and Circus Chick Cookies

These cookies were also for the Easter Egg Hunt and, like the previous set, the photos are terrible, because I didn't have time and just snapped with my phone. These cookies feature anthropomorphic chicks playing musical instruments, dressed as circus clowns, rollerskating, etc.

I don't generally make large cookies, but the detail in these would've been lost without, so I made them big. I used this Rectangular Cookie Cutter (2.375" x 3.5"), which the nice folks at CheapCookieCutters.com made for me upon request. I used my favorite sugar cookie dough, by Sugarbelle. I piped and flooded the cookies with white Royal Icing and, when it was hard, wafer-papered them and piped a border for them with a #16 star tip. They were a huge hit.

The wafer papers are available at my shop.
