The Partiologist: Easter Bunny Cake Pops!

Easter Bunny Cake Pops!

Sometimes you have to be careful who you ask for advice, they just might give it to you!  And it may not be what you want to hear, which leads me to this...After making the Easter Bunny cake pops, I asked my husband if he thought I should have made the noses white.  His response?  "Well, look outside, we have lots of bunnies running around, what color are their noses"?  (Seriously? I thought)  and said, in the nicest way, "well, those bunnies don't have colored ears with bows, or flowers for their tails, so I don't think that will be much help".  I can tell you this because he doesn't read my blog.  Yea, that's what I thought too!
 
Anyway, I left the noses black, because I looked outside and our bunnies have black noses.

And flowers for tails...
 
They were a little shy for the photo, but finally I was able to convince them to turn around.
 
It's up to you, what color are your bunnies noses?  Do they have flower tails?
 
Remember the snowman cake pop mold?  Now it's an Easter Bunny!
 
Here's how~
 
Start by rolling bright colored fondant and cut with a large daisy plunger cutter.
 
Cut the petals off for the ears.
 
Let dry overnight or longer.
 
Roll black fondant VERY thin and cut the nose with the Nori punch.
 
 Make your cake pop mixture, press in the snowman cake pop mold.
 
Insert lollipop stick.
 
Dip in white candy melts.
 

After you dip the bunny in the candy melts, immediately add the ears.
 
Sprinkle with white sanding sugar before the candy melts are set.
 
 Make white flowers for the tails and add colored sixlets to the center.
 
Tie little bows for each bunny. 
 
Add a bit of frosting and add the bows, eyes, nose, buttons and tails. 
 
These are Hoppy Cottontails!
 
It's up to you, what color are your bunnies noses?  Do they have flower tails?
 
Show Me the Bunny!

  1. Love the daisy tails and pretty bows! How do you get the cake pops to stand up in the glasses? That's such a cute way to display them!

  2. I got a good laugh here. I probably would have gotten a similar response from my husband. I just did a cookie where I was trying to decide whether or not to add a border, after spending hours painting the cookie. I'm fairly new so this was a big feat for me. I asked him what color border he thought I should add and he said, "Are you going to make the whole cookie white first?" OK, clueless. Why did I bother? Ha ha!!

    Anyway, love these cake pops. I'm terrible at making cake pops and I'm always so enthralled by them. These are super clever!

  3. LOL! My husband would have said something similar. He thinks my edible should be an exact duplicate of the real thing, but I'm much too creative for that, and so are you. I love that you used a daisy cutter to make ears and that you used flowers for the tail. These ideas are just so clever and your bunnies are adorable.

  6. Well at least you asked your hubby for advice. LOL Sometimes my hubby makes a weird comment when I am working on a project and it is not always welcome! He doesn't have my brain so he can't possibly know where I am going with it. LOL

    I adore your black nose bunnies. I think you are brilliant for making them with the snowman mold. Their flower tails are so cute I would have to eat them first!
