How to Embellish Chocolate Bunnies

by Matthew Mead

Chocolate Bunny Edible Craft & Free Printable Easter Tags by Living Locurto
I am a huge fan of the cake decorating aisle at the crafts store and have a specialty cake decorating supplier called Chandler’s Cake And Candy Supply in Concord, NH.  Most cities have similar stores and they are filled with great decorating ideas for items way beyond cakes.

This year I purchased a mix of milk, dark and white chocolate bunnies at discount stores and grocery stores and brought out the details using dusting powders including a mix of colors and shimmery gold.

I started by selecting rabbits that had lots of detail.  This will give you the ability to use the most amount of colors to highlight items like eggs, baskets, clothing details and more.

Coco Dusted Bunny (pictured above)
Sprinkle chocolate coco over the bunny using a screen sifter shaker.

Dust Colored Bunny
Apply the color to the surface of the bunny with a paint brush.  Do not mix brushes in several colors.  Reapply to reach the desired shade.  (Try not to touch the bunny because it can smudge).

Edible Glitter Bunny
Brush the surface of the bunny with a light layer of piping gel.  Sprinkle with glitter through a tea strainer.  Let dry for several hours.

Apply the gold powder to the bunny surface using a make-up applicator.

Fill cellophane bag with candy and place bunny inside.  Use candy to stabilize the bunny so it stands.  Fold top of bag and place bag header over top.  Staple header in place and hot glue on vintage looking silk flowers.

Place in Easter baskets, as favor on plates or arrange on a sideboard as an Easter focal point.
