How to Make a Bunny Body Cookie Set
Ever since BRP came out with the perfect 3-cookie gift box, it's been a goal of mine to create a design that uses that box for each holiday. This Easter was no exception.
This new Bunny Body cookie set has been one of my most popular cutters. Thank you for that! Because these 3-piece designs have been do so well, I'll definitely keep them coming for future holidays.
Now, on to the tutorial. This post is a long one, so I'll cut to the chase. Here's the long awaited tutorial for each of the three pieces for the Bunny Body Cookie set.
Bunny Body Set Cookie Cutters
This Bunny Body cookie set is available as a 3-piece set (with a head, a carrot middle, and bunny feet), or as a 2-piece set (with just the head and the carrot).
Templates for the Bunny Body Cookie Set
Each of these new Easter cookie designs has a template file you can download to help guide you through the decorating process.
Click the link below for the downloadable template PDF file.
This file is 3 pages long and is rather large in data size. Just a warning, it might take a moment before the file opens in your browser.
The Bunny Body cookie set templates are on the second page.
The Decorating Process
For these Bunny Body cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:
- Bunny Brown piping and flood icing (I mixed Americolor Taupe with a touch of Americolor Warm Brown.)
- Carrot Orange piping and flood icing (I used Americolor Orange.)
- Easter Grass Green medium icing. (I mixed two parts Americolor Egg Yellow and one part Americolor Mint.)
- Pink medium icing. (I used one small drop of Rainbow Dust Pink. A little goes a long way.)
- Black piping icing (I used Americolor Super Black.)
- For those without a projector, mark guidelines where the ears and head should be, as shown. I made a template with template plastic from the PDF file above and used a food marker to draw the guidelines on the cookie.
- Begin by filling in the inner ear areas with a thin layer of pink icing. Then fill in the head area with brown icing. Let this icing crust over.
- Next, fill in the top ear areas with brown icing. Then add the eyes and snout details.
- Lastly, outline around the ears, add eyebrows, a nose, and draw in a smile with a food marker.
- Mark guidelines where the hands and the top of the carrot should be, as shown.
- Begin by filling in the hands and outer leaf sections. Let that icing crust, then fill in the center carrot and remaining leaf sections.
- Let this icing dry completely before moving on.
- Once the icing is dry, draw in some carrot skin lines with a brown food marker. Then outline around the carrot, as well as define the fingers on the hands.
- Mark a guideline where the middle edge of the feet is, as shown.
- Begin by filling in one foot at a time with brown icing. This should give the feet added dimension.
- Let the icing set up for about 15 minutes.
- Next, add the pink paw pads. Then finish it up by outlining the feet to define the toes.
The steps above are summarized in the time-lapsed video below.
Here are the finished cookies all boxed up and ready to be gifted.
Using the same head cookie cutter, the head can be decorated as a boy or a girl (with the addition of some eye lashes and a bow). I provided both head designs in the PDF template.
For the 3-piece gift set, I used this new BRP long cookie box (12″ x 5″ x 1.5″).
For the 2-piece gift set, I used this Classic BRP cookie box (7″ x 4 3/8″ x 1.25″).
