The thing I love about these rabbits, you can make them as big or as small as you like. It all depends on the size of the tear drops you make.
What you need:
· Two balls of coloured fondant, one for the body, one for the nose and tail
· A sharp knife
· A ball fondant tool
· Water and paint brush
· Black food colouring or edible ink pen
How to do it:
1. Create two tear drops, one slightly bigger than the other using the coloured fondant you have chosen for the body.
2. Using your knife, cut down the middle of each of the tear drops, starting from the small end cutting to about halfway.
3. Turn the sliced pieces downwards, so that the cut fondant is facing the bench surface.
4. The larger of the tear drops is your body and legs. Round the end of the sliced pieces so they begin to look a little like bunny feet.
5. The smaller piece is your head and ears. Using your ball tool, gently press into the top of each of the sliced pieces and drag down towards the head to form your ears.
6. Once you are happy with the head and the body, use your paint brush to slightly wet the ball of the body and stick down the ball of the head.
7. Using the second fondant colour, make two little balls. One for the tail, and one for the nose. Use your water and paint brush to glue your nose to the head and your tail to the bunny’s bottom (in case there was any confusion as to where these belonged!).
8. Now complete your rabbit with a little splash of black food colouring for the eyes. Dip your tooth pick into the food colouring and dab gently onto the rabbits head. You can use a clean tooth pick to mark the spot for the eyes if you like before you had the dye. Or if you prefer, use an edible ink pen
I usually give my rabbits a day to dry before using them.
