In medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder.
In bowl of stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, granulated sugar and vanilla sugar for 4 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture and mix for 5 minutes or until a soft dough forms. Shape dough into a ball; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until chilled.
On lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Using 3-inch (7.5 cm) egg-shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies and arrange on parchment paper–lined baking sheet(s).
Bake for 11 minutes or until cookies are set. Transfer the parchment paper with the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Decorate: Divide royal icing into 4 even portions. Add 3 to 5 drops of green food colouring, as desired, to 1 portion and blend in colour. Tint the other portions yellow, red and blue. Between 2 sheets of parchment paper, roll out each portion to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Using the egg-shaped cookie cutter, cut out royal icing eggs.
Top each cookie with a fondant egg. Use icing pens to decorate cookies.
