This lovely bunny is just perfect for your Easter cake! Here you’ll find the tutorial on how to make him.
Serrated & Taper Cones tool
Scallop & comb tool
Fondant for the bunny
Orange (60 gr)
White (45 gr)
Green (2 gr)
Little pieces white/black/brown/blue for the eyes
Fondant for the litthe carrots (makes 10)
Orange (7 gr)
Green (1 gr)
Take 50 gram orange fondant, mix it with tylose. Roll a ball and roll this into a carrot shape. Fold the point of the carrot and use the Flower/Leaf tool to make carrot details. Probably the carrot won’t stay in it’s position, place for example a cup behind it to support it.
Use a serrated & taper cones tool to make the holes for the arms and legs and one for the head. As a detail you can use the quilting tool to make a line of stitches alongside the carrot.
Take 4 gram white fondant for each foot. Roll a sausage and make one edge a little thinner and flatten this out. Cut 3 toes with a pallet knife. Mold this with your fingers to make the edges smooth. Use the ball tool to make dents for the toes and the heel. Make two feet like this.
Take 0.5 gram pink fondant, this is for both feet. Part this in two, part both halves in two. Part for each foot one part in three. You now have 2 bigger pieces for the heels and 6 smaller pieces for the toes.
Roll little balls of the pink pieces and glue them in the dents in the feet. Also make a dent in the back of the each foot where you can glue the leg onto the foot.
Take 1 gram white fondant for each leg. Roll a sausage of 3cm, bend this and glue it onto the body and the foot. Repeat for the second leg.
Take 2 gram white fondant for each arm. Roll this into a suasage of 2cm. Roll one half of the sausage thinner so you create a hand. In total you roll the hand+arm to 4cm length.
Use the flower/leaf tool to make the fingers in the hands. Glue the arms onto the body, I let one hand rest on the foot (you can put a mini carrot in this hand) and the other hand onto the belly.
Take 1.5 gram white fondant for the neck, mix tylose into this fondant. Make a short sausage out of it and glue this onto the body.
Take 20 gram white fondant for the head and mix tylose in to it. Roll the fondant in an egg shape, flatten out the top of the head so you create a surface where the eyes will come. In the picture below you’ll find a front and side view. Make dents with the ball tool where the eyes need to be. Glue the head on to the neck.
Take a small amount of white fondant and part this in two pieces. Roll small balls and place them in on the eyes of the bunny. Make dents with the ball tool for the iris.
Take a small piece of blue or brown fondant for the iris, part this in two. Roll balls and place them on the eyes. Make with the ball tool small dents for the pupils.
Take a tiny piece of black and part this in two. Roll balls and place them on to the iris.
Take a even smaller tiny piece of white and part this in two. Roll tiny balls and place them as a light sparkle on the iris/pupil. Place them for both eyes on the same side.
If you like, you can make eyelashes out of brown or white fondant. Roll the fondant into a tiny sausage, cut small hairs and paste them above the eyes.
The 0.5 gram fondant for the snout. Flatten this in the shape of the snout(oval shape with flat top). Take the scallop & comd tool to create the details on the snout. Cut out a triangle for the nose and paste snout on the head.
Take a tiny piece of pink and shape it in a triangle shape. Paste it on the the snout.
Take 2.5 gram white fondant for each ear. Roll a sausage of 3cm. Roll both ends a bit pointier and flatten out the ear. Use the ball tool to make the inside of the ear a bit hollow. Make two of these ears.
Take half of the left over pink fondant (a little less then 0.5 gram). Part this in two and roll two sausages. Place one sausage in each ear and flatten this out. Glue the ears to the head.
Take 2 gram green fondant and mix in some tylose. Roll a sausage of about 2.5cm. Cut one half of the sausage in strips.
Take 10 gram orange fondant. Roll a ball and flatten this out to a circle with a diameter of 3cm. Make in one side a dent in the oval shape of the head. Make on the other side a dent in the shape of the leaves.
Paste the carrot head and the leafs on to the head of the bunny.
The only thing left to do is the tail. Roll a small ball of 4 gram white fondant and paste is on to the bunny.
And then you’re done! This is how you make this cutie for your Easter cake.
When you place the bunny on your cake. You can use two toothpicks to keep the bunny in place.
Mini carrots (makes 10)
The mini carrots are just cute, and really easy to make!
Take 7 gram orange fondant and roll a sausage of 10cm. Cut this in 10 pieces, this way you get 10 evenly sized pieces. Roll every piece in a little ball and then in a carrot shape. Make with the flower/leaf tool carrot details and a hole in the top.
Roll out 1 gram of green fondant and cut it in small strips. Cut the strips in even smaller strips annd place two or three stripes in each carrot.
That’s all! Have a happy easter everybody!
