How to Make a Stackable Bunny Cookie Set
If you're looking for an adorable cookie set to offer this Easter season, I think I have just the set for you.
This new Stackable bunny cookie cutter set is probably the most adorable thing I've ever made. I mean, come on. How cute is this Easter bunny‽
For this tutorial, I made a version of each available size for demo purposes. And as I was decorating, it seemed the smaller he got in size, the cuter he became. I just wanted to eat him up!
Anyways, enough with my adoration of this set. Here's a breakdown of the decorating steps if you would like to recreate this set for yourself.
Stackable Bunny Cookie Cutter Set
This Stackable bunny cookie cutter set comes in 4 pieces, each a different section of a standing bunny design.
This set is available in various sizes.
- The LARGE cookie set will fit in this BRP long cookie box (12″ x 5″ x 1.5″).
- The REGULAR cookie set will fit in this BRP cookie box (9.5" x 6" x 1.5").
- The MINI cookie set will fit in 3" x 11" cellophane bag sleeves.
For this tutorial I'll be decorating the LARGE size, however the REGULAR and MINI size examples are shown at the end of this post.
Template for the Stackable Bunny Cookies
To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template of all of the new Easter cookie cutters, including this stackable Easter bunny cookie design.
You can download all the 2021 Easter cookie templates HERE.
If you have a Kopykake or Pico projector, just print it out (or pull it up on your mobile device) and you are good to go. For those without a projector, follow the suggested steps below by tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.
The Decorating Process
For these Easter Bunny Cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:
- Brown royal icing (I mixed Americolor Taupe with a touch of Americolor Warm Brown.)
- Light Tan icing (I mixed a little of the brown color above with fresh white icing.)
- Black icing (I used Americolor Super Black.)
- White flood (I used Americolor Bright White.)
- Light Pink icing (I used Wilton Pink.)
- Light Blue icing (I used a touch of Americolor Sky Blue.)
For the ears cookie, begin by filling in the middle "empty" area between the ears with a thin layer of white icing. Also do the same with the inner ear areas by filling with a thin layer of tan icing. Let this icing set.
Then fill in one of the outer ear areas with brown icing, as shown.
Next, fill in the other outer ear section with brown icing. Let this icing dry completely.
Once the icing is dry, draw in sewing seams with a food pen (I used this coffee color pen). Then outline the ears as shown.
For the legs cookie, the steps are the same as above. Start by filling in the middle "empty area with a thin layer of white icing. Let this icing set.
Then fill in one of the legs with brown icing.
Next, fill in the other remaining leg with brown icing. Let this icing dry completely.
Once the icing is dry, draw in sewing seams with a food pen (I used this coffee color pen). Then outline the feet as shown.
For the head piece, begin by flooding the entire cookie with brown icing. Let this icing dry.
Next, add the mouth area with tan icing and the two eyes, as shown. Let this icing set before moving on.
Finish the face details by adding the pink nose and two eyebrows.
Draw in sewing seam and mouth line with a food pen. Then outline the cookie as shown.
For the belly cookie, start by flooding the vest area with white icing. Let this icing dry completely.
Then airbrush a gingham pattern. I used this wide striped stencil (if you're decorating a mini set, use this smaller striped stencil) with beachy blue airbrush from the Cookie Countess. Let this airbrush color dry before moving on.
Next, fill in the remaining arms and belly sections with brown icing.
Outline the arms and belly with brown icing, and outline the vest with light blue icing. Add a bow tie to finish it off.
For the bow ties, I wanted to save time by using a fondant mold instead of piping a bow with icing. It's quick, easy, and adds nice dimension. You can find the fondant mold I used here.
The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together below.
Here's the completed stackable bunny cookie set fully decorated.
This is the large sized set and it fits nicely in this BRP long cookie box (12″ x 5″ x 1.5″).
For a size comparison, here's both the Regular and Mini sets as well.
The Regular cookie set will fit in this BRP cookie box (9.5" x 6" x 1.5").
The Mini cookie set will fit in 3" x 11" cellophane bag sleeves.
For the mini cookie set, the cellophane bag always leaves a glossy glare in my photos. So, below is a shot of the cookie pieces outside of the bag for a better, unobstructed view.
