If you fancy giving the rabbit a try or you just want to see how I made it, just click the video below ⇩

I think this cake just looks so cute, it’s quite a simple design but the rabbit really does come out from the cake.

The making of the rabbit

The cake is a 6 inch cake which is 5 inches in height. When making the rabbit this has been made entirely out of fondant. I did add a little tylos powder into his ears to make them stand up above the cake, so they hold their shape. If you don’t have tylos powder you could also add a little gumpaste or modelling paste. We just need it a little firmer than fondant on its own as some of the ear is coming off the cake so needs to stand up on its own.

The bunny was modelled from white fondant and coloured with different shades of petal dusts. It was at this point that the rabbit really started to come to life as the petal dusts bring out the features.

You can also design your bunny in any colour. I’ve gone for a white and grey fur but you can change the way he looks just by changing the colour of the petal dusts. I’ve also added some flowers at the top of my bunnies head, but you could add a bow or even a bow tie, depending on the theme of your party.

I really hope you enjoy the video and will find this tutorial useful and will be able to use it to add a bunny onto your own cakes. Plus if you haven’t already you can subscribe to my YouTube channel for more Free cake decorating video tutorials.
