The Partiologist: Easter Bunny Photo Prop Cookies!

Easter Bunny Photo Prop Cookies!

You may remember how I flooded you with Easter posts last year because I was running out of time.  I decided not to let that happen again... So today is the first of many EGG citing Easter ideas I will be sharing with you. 
 
Thinking outside the cupcake, I created Easter Bunny Photo Prop Cookies~
My friend Callye a/k/a SweetSugarBelle is the master when it comes to repurposing cookie cutters.  You could give her two cutters and she would be able to make an entire set of star wars cookies.   Not me, I had to buy the set from Williams Sonoma.  I finally repurposed a cutter.  Yes, it was only one cutter, but give me credit, I tried.

When I was finished, I needed a model to photograph.
What do you think?
 
 
That's what happens when you're left alone too long...
 
Now I'll show you how to make a few noses for your favorite little bunny.
 

1. Cupcake cookie cutter - (Thinking Outside The Cupcake)!!!
 
2.  After cutting out the cupcake, reshape with a round cutter and trim off the top.
 
3.  After trimming the top, even up the bottom.
 
4.  Place on cookie sheet and bake. 
 
(I used the No Fail Sugar Cookie recipe and rolled them out 1/4 inch thick.)
 
5.  As soon as they come out of the oven, insert a wooden skewer.
 
6.  After they have cooled complete, remove from pan.
 
 
Now it's time to decorate~
 

1.  Roll and cut white fondant for the bunny teeth.
 
2.  Trim the top to fit the cookie.
 
3.  Make a line for the two teeth with a toothpick.
 
4.  Using a basket weave tip, pipe butter cream frosting across the bottom of the cookie.
 
5.  Clean the edges with a spatula.
 
6.  Add the fondant teeth to the frosting.
 

1.  Roll out pink fondant and cut with oval cookie cutter.

2.  Using a strip cutter (or knife) cut the whiskers.
 
3.  Pull the strips out of the cutter.
 
4.  Lay out in an X
 
5.  Add another strip across the middle.

6.  Press the center together.
 
7.  Pipe white frosting using the grass tip.
 
8.  Add whiskers.
 
9.  Add a dot of white frosting.
 
10.  Add the oval pink nose.
 
11.  Add a drop of hot glue to the stick.
 
12.  Place a straw over the stick and sprinkle with sanding sugar.

(My friend, Lisa, TheBearfootBaker taught me about using a stick to support the straw!)
 

You're No Bunny 'til Some Bunny Loves You!
 
Some Bunny DOES Love You!
