Tuesday Toppers :Special Edition Easter Bunny


Today i'm giving all of you wonderful readers a special Easter treat and having a special edition of Tuesday toppers. I'm going to show you how to make my Easter Bunny cupcake topper. Now he is one of my more complicated toppers, and a little more time consuming, but he's just so cute that i think he's worth it :D. Here's what you'll need to make him:


-Knife
-Paint brush and water

-black food coloring marker (or gel food coloring and paint brush)

-Fondant smoother

-White and pink fondant




-Take a 1" ball of fondant and flatten it slightly.



-Take smaller ball of white fondant and make

2-small balls for cheeks

2-smaller balls for eyes

1-small ball for teeth

2- 1 1/4" logs for ears

-Take ball of pink fondant and make

2- 3/4" logs for ears

1- small ball for nose


-For teeth, take small ball and flatten with fondant smoother.


-Cut two of the sides off.

-Using the back of the knife make an indentation in the middle for the teeth mark and set aside.



-For the nose flatten just slightly and set aside.

- For the cheeks take the two bigger balls and flatten them together as shown. Set aside.



-For the eyes, take the two smaller balls and flatten out pretty thin. Set aside.


-For ears take the white and pink logs and flatten then out thinly.


-Stack the pink on top of the white, lining them up at the bottom.

-Flatten them out again.


-Pinch both ears in at bottom as shown.


-Flatten the bottoms out with fondant smoother.



-Attatch both ears to back of face with small amount of water, turn over, and flatten face again with fondant smoother.

-With a very small amount of water, attatch eyes and teeth.



-Do the same with cheeks.

-Attatch nose with small amount of water.

-Take the knife and flatten top of nose slightly.

-Using the markers, make a dot in each eye ( or you can use the gel and paint brush and do the same thing).



-To curl ears up, use the back of paint brush and wrap around gently.

Happy Easter Everyone!
