I love developing new decorating ideas…it’s very rewarding and satisfying. These particular Easter egg cookies were designed so they could be easily decorated by everyone, no matter what their skill level or age.
‘Have a go’ cookie decorating activity
Last weekend I had the great privilege of being invited to run a ‘have a go’ table at the Dyslexia Information Day, in the engine shed at Enginuity, part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust. Beforehand we had no idea who would come or how popular the activity would be. We needn’t have worried!
What a wonderful response! We had people both young and old queuing up try their hand at decorating. Easter eggs cookies were certainly popular and even the youngest participants created amazingly neat and colourful work – In my book, being artistic is definitely one advantage of being dyslexic!
Dyslexics doing what they love
These dyslexia information days are not-for-profit events created to offer free information, advice and guidance to all: adults, children, individuals, families and employers. The focus for this particular day was dyslexics doing what they love! I guess that is why I was invited – I love what I do and as an adult, I appreciate and enjoy the gifts that being dyslexic brings.
How to decorate Easter egg cookies using stencils
You too can have a go. I’ve created a Facebook live video to show you just how easy these Easter egg cookies are to create. Before you begin you will need:
A set of Easter egg cutters and some appropriate stencils, I used my Spring Garden Flower set. You will also need to bake some cookies and have some sugarpaste and colour food dusts to hand. To find out more please watch and enjoy my video.
I hope you feel inspired to make and decorate your own Easter egg cookies this year. If you’d like a good cookie recipe try either my vanilla cookies or my spiced orange cookies, they always work a treat.
I’ll sign off with one of my favourite photos from DID18 – threading the ribbon, the finishing touch.
Happy baking and decorating
