Bunny Butt Cookies

Hello all! As you have probably been able to tell by now, I love to bake and I especially love themed desserts. This is a fairly new discovery but I have loved making special holiday treats for everyone at work with fun decorations. Decorating something just gives it that extra oomph that I also look for in my outfits! 

So, in honor of spring, I decided to try something new. My co-worker Jessica and I were brainstorming one day for desserts she could make for her family for Easter. By far the cutest thing we saw on Pinterest were bunny butt cakes. Yes, cakes that look like a bunny butt. They were adorable and absolutely hilarious.

Now, while I loved the idea, I am not a huge cake fan. So I decided to adapt the idea to my favorite cookie recipe, sprinkle cookies. These cookies are pretty easy to make and they are delicious. To make them into bunny butts, I split the dough into half and used half to make regular size cookies (which I cooked for 11 minutes) and half to make tiny cookies to use as the feet (I cooked these for 4 minutes). 

Then, after they had cooled, I first iced all of the regular cookies with plain icing. Then I put a little bit of icing on the bottom of the tiny cookies as glue to attach them to the regular cookies. Finally, I dyed the rest of my icing pink to make the tails and the feet. 

Let me tell you, these were a huge hit at work and are by far the cutest thing I've ever made. If you try them out, I'd love to hear how it goes or get any suggestions for improving them! Until next time, XO
