This one is cute. I don't have the 3d pans, but I have made several bunnies for Easter in years past. I use 2 rounds (8 or 9") and cut one to make ears and the leftover pieces make a cute bowtie. (The whole round is the head.) It's super easy and can be decorated in any colors you like. They are adorable!
