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!

Stick the feet onto the body with a brush of water.
For the arms: Roll two sausage shapes, taper at one end.
Stick the arms onto the body with a brush of water.
