How to Make Crackle Effect Cookies
This crackle effect is something that I have been trying to figure out for ages. I have seen several various tutorials online but they either involved some weird product I didn’t have (and didn’t feel like buying) or some tedious work.
But it turns out there is a much simpler way to achieve this crackle effect on cookies. And, I mean, it’s VERY simple!

How to Make It
Alright guys, here’s the secret.
Just paint white (Or any chalky gel food coloring. I used Americolor Fog) over the unbaked cookie, then bake it.
And *BAM* you have your crackle effect!
So simple, right? I can’t believe it took me so long to figure it out. And I can’t even take credit for figuring it out. One of my cookie friends send me a very similar tutorial and we were both shocked out how easy it was.
I love the look of these weathered bunnies, which are perfect for Easter, but they needed a little something else.
I decided to add a few tulips to the bottom of these little bunnies. They, too, are easy to achieve.
First I piped on some grass. Then I made three long teardrop shapes to create the tulip - two on the outside, then one down the middle.
To finish them off, I added a little stem with the same green icing.
These cookies definitely don’t look like they were easy to achieve, but they were! That’s what I love about them! A simple cookie with very little piping required.
Recipes and Supplies
To make these you will need:
Sugar cookies cut out into your desired shape
White food coloring (or any chalky food coloring like Fog)
Stiff consistency royal icing in green, red, and pink (or your desired colors)
