Making the sugar Bunny:
1.) Using the white fondant icing make the following – x1 large ball for the body ( golf ball size) x 2 small balls for the feet (almond size) x1 small ball for the bobble tail (malteser size) – roll on a cheese grater to get a rough finish.
2.) Colour a small piece of white icing with a tiny drop of red colouring to make the pink paw pads.
3.) Make a small amount of royal icing by adding a little water to icing sugar.
4.) Shape the feet into an oval, add pink paw pads by rolling out x6 tiny pink balls – see photo. Stick on the pink balls to the base of the feet.
5.) Stick on the bobble tail and feet to the body, then attach the body to the cake using a little leftover buttercream. Add in a pair of ears if you are feeling creative!
7.) Finish off by tying a pretty ribbon around the outside edge of the cake.
