Hoppy Easter 2017

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!

Hop to It

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:

Bunnies

Not sure of what cookie favors to take into school for her daughter’s birthday, the client sent me several photos of her incredibly adorable six year old for inspiration. One of the photos showed her hugging her favorite stuffed animal bunny.  Bunny bonanza!  I sketched the idea, passed it by my customer, and was good to go.  The bunny cutter was from the MeriMeri 2015 Easter collection.  I happened to have a small carrot from R&M Internationla Corp‘s mini veggie cutter set that went perfectly for the look of the favor I was trying to achieve.  I am still giggling about the carrot bow tie I gave him…

Here are the bunnies in process.  Only 4 colors needed.

And the final presentation of the favors…

I also made 5 folk bunnies for the family to just eat at home (they are amazing and I love my repeat customers!). Playing up the texture…
