Grass, Large, Small Treetops and Trunks


Step 1

In advance: Make fondant bunnies, tulips, leaves, treetops and trunks.

Step 2

For bunnies, roll out white fondant 1/8 in. thick; cut 3 bunny shapes using cutters from each set. Let dry on waxed paper-covered board, dusted with cornstarch. Reserve a 2 1/2 in. ball of white; tint remaining fondant: 12 oz. leaf green, a 2 1/2 in. ball of brown and 1 1/2 in. balls of rose, yellow and violet.

Step 3

Roll out rose, yellow and violet 1/8 in. thick; cut 4-5 tulips in each color using mini cutter. Let dry. Roll out green and brown fondant 1/8 in. thick; trace treetop and trunk patterns with toothpick and cut 3 large and 2 small of each. Cut leaves for tulips using ears from mini bunny cutter. Let all dry. Reserve remaining green fondant.

Step 4

For flower stems, cut 14 lollipop sticks in half; tint vanilla green and brush on sticks. Let stems dry in craft block. Draw features and decorated egg on bunnies with FoodWriters.

Step 5

Using reserved white fondant, roll small balls for bunny tails and logs for standing bunny's arms; attach with damp brush. Attach confetti sprinkles with dots of melted candy. Attach treetops to trunks with melted candy; let set. With melted candy, attach trees and bunnies to lollipop sticks, attach tulips and leaves to stems. Let set.

Step 6

Ice 2-layer cake smooth (bake two 1 1/2 in. high layers for a 3 in. high cake). Roll out reserved green fondant 1/8 in. thick.

Step 7

Trace grass pattern with toothpick, making a separate section for each cake side. Cut grass with knife; attach to cake sides.

Step 8

Draw grass blades with FoodWriter. Attach tulips to grass with dots of icing, trimming sticks as needed. Insert trees and bunnies.
