A little late to the (cake) plate on this post but just love the umbrella cutter (still crushing on all things Killer Zebras). I tweaked the original design to incorporate Easter bunnies. If you haven’t noticed, I am in a geometric phase; bring on the structured rabbits. Hope you enjoy!
Ryan wanted her birthday to be centered around jack rabbits. I did a cookie take on the invitation artwork (sorry I can’t give the artist credit/wish I knew who her/his name!) and added a few embellishments…
I wanted a soft background with lattice work (those rabbits had me thinking of Mr. MacGregor’s fence but with something sweet for 5 year old girl …). Stencil hero Killer Zebras came through again with just the right touch.
After I flooded the cookie in pink and airbrushed gold sheen (Americolor), I put the base of white royal icing for the bunny (and the black eyes about 4 hours later). They dried overnight before I added the details with my trusty Rainbow Dust pens. Luckily I had some purple flowers I had made with leftover icing from another cookie set; they worked perfectly to sync up with the invite design. And the result:
In MamaMayer’s garden…
Just a little whimsy of a hopping bunny and some late summer flowers.
I love using minis when you have to feed a larger crowd but still want to make those couple of bites special.
