I almost forgot to post these cuties :) We made them for a friend's birthday as a gift. Because of time constraint we wanted to make something quick and simple, but still cute so we these were our choice :)
These were made from a simple egg cutter. I think there is already a tutorial by Sugar Belle. However we made it even simpler with the eyes and I'll go over a few quick steps here.
With an egg cutter you just snip off the top part with the egg cutter to create the pointy ears. Then mark off the area for the wings with an edible marker.
Then fill the body area with 20 second icing, you can choose any colour you like....we decided to go with pink here, let it dry. Then fill the wings area with blue 20 second icing, let it dry again.
Once the pink icing is dry, piped a white flooding icing to make the bottom of their eye shape & let it dry - see picture below for a clearer visual.
Then piped a black flood icing on each eye area, while the black icing is still wet, add 2 white dots to give a definition for the eyes. Let it dry.
Once the eyes are dry, then we can start piping all the little details. We added the beak with orange icing, white dots around the wings with a piping consistency icing, then lastly the squiggly lines in the middle of their body to add the fur. We used light pink 20 second icing for the squiggly lines in the middle.
So there you go, simple & easy :) Hope this encourages you to try making these cuties ;-)
Hope everyone is having a great start to the week ;-)
