We know all there is to know about Easter sweets, and by making these we can guarantee you'll be more popular than the Easter bunny himself!
We recommend making your favourite cookies (using your own recipe) a day in advance. Roll them out and use a bunny cutter to cut out the shapes. Bake and cool the cookies.
Get your fondant and separate it into 4 bowls. Tint the separated fondant (about 100g or 40z) each of the following colours: violet, rose, blue & green. Use a fondant roller to roll out the fondant colours separately. Use pattern embossers to detail different patterns on the fondant sections, then use the bunny cutter to cut the shape for the cookie out of the fondant.
Prepare your favourite buttercream icing from your own recipe. Use a disposable decorating bag with its tip cut off to outline and pipe in the cookies with white icing, leaving a gap around the edge of the cookie. Use a spatula to smooth this.
Then place the cut fondant onto the cookie. For the tails, roll out small, matching colour balls of fondant, flatten them slightly and imprint with a pattern. Use a damp brush to attach the tail to the cookie.
You've finished! So hop to enjoying them with a deliciously rich coffee or a perfectly warm cup of tea. You can also move on to our wider range of Easter recipes!
