One of the winners of the free dozen cookies requested some Chinese New Year cookies.

She sent me a picture of an idea she had and I thought it was adorable!

The Chinese New Year officially begins on Feb. 3rd and this is the year of the Rabbit.


I just love that little hat and queue! (Chinese ponytail)


I must tell you… I have never wanted a KopyKat so badly as I did with this. Piping out each bunny by hand and trying to get them to look like each other was giving me brain aneurysms.

And hand cramps.


But as I always say, it was all worth it in the end.

Happy Chinese New Year!!


And just so you know, I am almost posting a tutorial on the Rose Cake on Friday! (or tomorrow if we can get homeschooling done in a timely fashion!) I dont usually post three times in one week, but I couldnt help but share these with you on an appropriate date. (as in, not late!)

Thank you all so much for your kind birthday wishes!

Share with your friends!
