Fondant Colors: white, orange, green, pink, blue and black
Bunny Fondant Topper:
Body: Mold fondant into a pear shape with a flattened bottom for stability.
Legs: Roll short pieces of fondant into snakes, shaping one end into a foot with toes using a modeling tool. Attach to the base of the body.
Arms: Roll fondant into small pear shapes and attach to the body.
Head: Roll fondant into a ball, indent for mouth and muzzle, then attach to the body.
Ears: Roll fondant into thin snakes, thin the inner part, leaving the edges thicker. Attach to the head.
Eyes: Make indentations with a modeling tool, place flattened black fondant balls for eyes, add eyelash indentations with a toothpick.
Nose: Roll pink fondant into a triangle, flatten, and attach to the face.
Carrot: Roll orange fondant into a carrot shape with a pointed end. Make horizontal indentations with a knife. For the top, roll green fondant into a rectangle, cut halfway down lengthwise, fan out the top, and form leaves with modeling tools. Rest the carrot in the bunny’s arms.
Mold Chocolate Carrots:
Melting Chocolate: Melt orange and green candy coating separately in the microwave.
Fill Mold: Fill the leafy section of the carrot mold halfway with green chocolate, then fill the remaining section with orange chocolate. Tap mold to settle chocolate and remove air bubbles.
Chill and Release: Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes, invert mold, tap to release chocolate. Refrigerate for additional time if needed.
Bake a 2-layer 2-tiered cake. Layer, fill, stack and crumb coat each tier.
Roll Fondant: Roll out pale blue fondant for cake covering and roll pink fondant for lettering.
Cover Cake: Drape fondant over the cake, smooth with a fondant smoother, trim excess.
Assembling the Cake:
Decorate: Place the larger tier on the cake board, stack the second tier, add "Happy Easter" lettering.
Brush piping gel on the board and bottom tier, cover with "dirt" (pulverized oreo cookies or chocolate graham crackers).
Add Grass Border: Pipe a green grass border along the bottom of each tier.
Attach Carrots: Cut tips off molded chocolate carrots, dip in melted candy coating, stick into the "dirt" around the cake, adding extra “dirt” to resemble soil.
Top the cake with the bunny cake topper.
