Sweets: Easter Bunny Cookies, Two Ways

From St. Patrick’s Day treats to Easter treats… it’s a quick turn around between holidays, so let’s get you ready to dazzle, create and amaze this spring! We’re talking easter bunny cookies, two ways. You could say level 1 difficulty and level 2; we’re going to focus on level 1 today, but here’s a quick round up of the tougher route:

Level 2 requires royal icing. This in itself is it’s own post, which is coming soon. If you’re a whiz at royal icing already I’ve just piped a border of white icing and immediately flooded the cookie with more white. Once the base has dried, I added 2 rounds of white icing for cheeks, a quick nose and ears with pink royal icing, and two little eyes with a black, edible pen.

Let’s move on to the easier process, which would be so fun to do with the kids:

This cute lil bunny is covered in fondant and jelly beans. If you’ve never worked with fondant before, no worries. I like to get my fondant at Hobby Lobby. It’s less expensive and I think it tastes better. You could also make fondant, but that’s another post for another day! First, take a piece of fondant and roll it flat and thin. If it sticks to your surface at all, sprinkle the surface and the rolling pin with a bit of powdered sugar! Cut the fondant with the same shape you used for your sugar cookie.

Next, cut little circles for the cheeks. I used a “zero” cutter I had and just used the middle part, but you can use anything circular, like the top of a marker cap!

Carefully remove the fondant shapes.

Now let’s focus on that cute little bunny face. I used jelly beans for the features. I also used a sharp knife to cut them, so I’d suggest mom takes over this part for the kids! I cut off the end of a pink jelly bean for the nose, then I sliced a pink in half, vertically, for the ears. Next, I cut the ends off of a blue for the eyes!

Now we’re ready for those little hands to get involved again! Place those darling little pieces on the fondant and press down lightly.

Now pick the whole layer up and place on top of your cookie shape.

See how easy it is? Imagine the possibilities? This would be darling with an egg shape, too! Get those little helpers in there and create together!
