When I came across this Easter biscuit/cookie cutter set by Meri-Meri I fell a little bit in love with the pretty shapes. Bunny rabbits and rainbows are two of my favourite things, I couldn't wait to dust off my piping nozzles, mix up some royal icing and have a little play. Sometimes it's nice to work on a little project just because inspiration strikes, with no customer expectations or the pressures of a looming deadline.
Taking inspiration from the popular sleeping unicorn trend, I decided to opt for a dreamy sleeping bunnies design for my little fellas.
I choose a soft pastel pallet using Sugarflair food colourings in Claret, Party Green, Egg Yellow and Ice Blue to create the spring like colour schemed. The delicate gold details have been carefully piped, left to dry and then painted by hand using Sugarflair Gold Lustre mixed with a tiny amount of clear alcohol. Once the icing had dried Sugarflair Pink Shimmer Lustre has been dusted on with a dry brush to create the cute little blush on the bunnies rosy cheeks.
Once my creative juices were in full flow there was no stopping me, I couldn't resist adding a flower crown to some of the rabbits. I've decided these bunnies look like they could be off to a festival! What do you think?
