Easter egg cookies

Remember a few posts back when I made cookies for Mr. Perfect to take to a Young Men's activity and we had enough dough left over to make a huge egg? Well, we decided to make big egg cookies for Easter. The only problem was that when I wen to Orson Gygi to buy a really big egg cookie cutter, they didn't have one the size I wanted. They had normal sized ones and one HUGE one that had cut-outs already in it. We didn't want that. So I went on a search and found this lovely egg stencil:
Through the magic of computer stuff, I was able to print it the size we we wanted, and there you have it. The Huge Easter Egg Cookie Experiment could progress. We did two sizes of eggs: really big and normal. We decided on three colors for our eggs: green, yellow, and purple. I know, I know. They aren't exactly the Primary colors, but hey, they work for spring.

We don't have decorating bags for frosting, so we improvised and cut the tips off corners of baggies filled with frosting. They worked great, because all we really wanted was straight piping, not the fancy star-tipped stuff. Here are the results. Please vote for your favorite.

Which do you think is my favorite?
