HOW TO MAKE FONDANT EASTER BUNNIES
In this tutorial I will show you how to make fondant bunnies to use as an Easter topper for your cake or cupcakes. I found a tutorial by ‘cake.correre.it’ on the web, however it was not in English (this tutorial is based on what I gained from this tutorial).
ITEMS YOU WILL NEED:
Knead the white fondant – weigh out 15 grams (make sure you wrap your remaining fondant in plastic so it does not dry out). Roll into an egg shape and then place on non-
Weigh out 5 grams of white fondant – roll into an oval and place an edible pearl on either side at the front for the eyes.
Glue on a small pink circle for the nose and then glue the head onto the body as shown.
To make the hind legs -
To make the front legs – weigh 2 grams of white fondant – split into 2 x 1 gram balls and then roll each into a small sausage shape to form the 2 front legs.
To make the tail -
Glue on the hind legs, front legs and tail with edible glue.
For the ears – weight 2 grams of white fondant – split into 2 x 1 gram balls and roll them into a teardrop shape. Using the fondant tool shape your ears – you may need to gently shape the bottoms with your fingers until you are happy with the shape.
For the centre of the ears – roll a small amount of pink fondant into a small teardrop shape and press into the centre of the ear with the fondant tool.
Glue the ears onto the bunny and then allow to dry. Once completely dry (about 3 days) you can store in an airtight container ready for use.
