Peek-a-Boo Bunnies Fondant Tutorial

As Easter is just around the corner, I’m excited to share this “Peek-a-Boo Bunnies” tutorial featured in the Spring 2013 issue of The Party Dress Magazine! Last year, I had the immense pleasure of styling the Easter Egg Hunt party for their 2012 issue and was so extremely grateful for all the amazing and supportive feedback I received for the “bunny bum” push pops diving into their rabbit holes! The bunnies are back this year and are popping up to take a peek and see if everyone’s ready for an early Easter!

Supplies you will need:

  • white, pink and black fondant
  • rolling pin
  • large and small leaf cutters
  • round tip {in this case, Wilton tips 12 and 5}
  • modeling stick and knife tools
  • food safe brush and water
  • raw spaghetti
  • white soft gel paste & toothpick
  • push up container, crushed Oreos and chocolate pudding

Roll some white fondant into a ball and shape the top narrower with your fingers, making sure it remains nice and rounded.

Roll out white and pink fondant and cut out two each with large and small leaf cutters respectively. Use water to glue pink over white and indent with modeling stick. Insert small piece of raw spaghetti into ears and glue into the head.

Roll out pink fondant and use larger tip to cut out a circle. Pinch one side with you fingers and use the knife to indent the other side to create a heart and glue onto face. Roll out black fondant, cut out two small circles for the eyes and glue. Utilize the toothpick to dip into white gel paste and “dot” the eyes.

Roll two small white fondant balls for the hands. With the knife tool, make three indentations for fingers. Turn it upside down and make an indentation with the modeling stick. Place on push up container to mold.

Fill push up container with pudding and crushed Oreos and finish it off by adding the bunny head and hands! You can vary the ears and eyes so the bunnies are looking in different directions as they are popping up and taking a peek prior to hiding some eggs!

And don’t forget, if you are interested in the instructions for last year’s “Bunny Bums”, it is available, along with additional inspiration and tutorials in this year’s Farm Fresh Easter publication!

Merci Beaucoup!
