Yes, it’s that time again and with spring paving the way for all the wonderful pastel Easter festivities it’s time for us to unveil the very first of our Easter cake decorating tutorials; how to make a simple yet sweet bunny rabbit! This adorable edible bunny would be the perfect finish to any delicious cake or cupcake so read on for our step-by-step guide!
How to create a cute and easy fondant bunny…
- Fondant/sugar paste (we used a grey colour, but you can use any colour you wish)
- Black fondant/sugar paste balls around 4mm in size
- Pink fondant/sugar paste
- Tylo powder
- White sugar paste
- Edible glue
- Spaghetti stick uncooked
- Scriber tool or cocktail stick
- Pink blossom, lustre or petal dust
- Small ball tool
Take a small ball of fondant around the size of a standard marble and roll into a ball before tapering slightly into a rounded teardrop shape.
Paint a broken spaghetti stick around 1cm longer than the body you created in step 1 with edible glue. Insert into the centre of the fondant bunny’s body. Above is a photo of the fondant or gum paste ball before and then with the spaghetti stick inserted.
Roll a larger ball of fondant approximately the size of a golf ball.
Add edible glue to the exposed half of the spaghetti stick and attach the larger ball of fondant on top. This will be the head of your rabbit.
Create two tiny balls of fondant and attach midway up the head to create the muzzle.
Using a small ball tool indent two eye sockets and attach your black fondant balls into these with a dab of edible glue.
Add a tiny pink button nose with a small triangular shaped piece of pink fondant and some edible glue.
Add detail to the muzzle with a scriber tool or even the pointed end of a cocktail stick!
To add ears roll out two equal sized balls of fondant around the size of a small to medium bean before rolling lengthways to form long rounded teardrop shapes.
Insert two lengths of spaghetti sticks where you’d like the ears to sit. Make sure that each is the same length as the fondant ears. Paint these with a little edible glue.
Carefully push each fondant ear onto the spaghetti and flatten slightly.
To create a cute bunny-like stance attach two small balls of fondant underneath it’s head. These will be adorable little paws perched just under the bunny’s face!
Add some flushed cheeks to your bunny with some edible petal dust.
If you’ve followed our tutorial step by step then you should now be faced with one wonderfully sweet little bunny ready to nestle into a freshly buttercream cupcake or attach on top of an iced cake; ready just in time for a fun Easter party!
