Easter bunny cake decoration


For this Easter recipe you will need:
  • 70g beige modelling paste
  • 1g pink modelling paste
  • 1g yellow modelling paste
  • 1g cream modelling paste
  • 1/4g white modelling
  • Black sugar pearls for the eyes
  • Chinese clear noodles for the whiskers

There’s no better way to decorate your Easter baking than with this cheerful chap, the perfect combination of cheeky and cute.

You could use him with other Easter-themed decorations on a large cake or top cupcakes with a little rabbit each - let your imagination go wild.

Once made, you can keep these in a breathable cake box for a good few days, letting you get ahead on your Easter prep.

The amounts make 1 bunny but you can double or triple the ingredients if you want to make more - you could also choose to make your bunnies a smaller or bigger size, or even a different colour - the choice is yours!
