Today on Bakers Party Shop's blog we're sharing bunny sweets + desserts for spring. Four of our sweet design team contributors took the challenge of creating something sweet using a bunny in what they created to help inspire your spring baking. We hope you enjoy the Easter desserts and bunny sweets they made!
Our sweet design team contributors are a talented bunch! They made a spring garden cake featuring the sweetest chocolate bunnies and carrots, a bunny candy box made right in the box you gift it in featuring a bunny chocolate pop on top, marbleized bunny sugar cookies with bow ties and the most adorable pastel bunny face cakesicles. You're bound to learn a tip or two or be inspired by something that you can incorporate into your spring baking! Take it away sweet ladies...
Spring Bunny Cake by Johneris of Little Rose Desserts
When I decided to participate in the Easter bunny collaboration I knew I wanted to make a cake but wasn't sure of the elements I wanted to use for the design. When I took a look at all the adorable products that Bakers Party Shop offers for spring and Easter my mind got really creative. I knew I wanted to make a cake that was very spring looking with lots of special details and components.
Their silicone molds and candy molds helped create all the extra details and sweets I wanted to put on my cake. I made small eggs and Easter bunnies using white candy melts. The cutest carrots were made using fondant. The nice thing with these kinds of elements is that you can make them ahead of time.
For the cake itself I wanted it to look a little like the sky, so I went for an ombre of light blues untill it reaches to a white shade, and of course I gave the final touch with a wavy placement of their nonpareil easter mix, and some of their sprinklefetti Easter mix which are soooooo adorable. I'm very very happy with the final result, and I think this is the most adorable, detailed cake I've made so far.

Chocolate Bunny Candy Box by Christie of Ritzy Parties
Create your own fancy candy shop style bunny candy box using candy molds, chocolate and sprinkles. In this simple tutorial, I’ll show you how to create a chocolate bunny lollipop, which rests atop a chocolate "bar" background dotted with colorful jimmie sprinkles. The entire piece is presented in an elegant oval candy box, complete with a clear lid to protect your chocolate work of art. These unique Easter favors are lovely for gift giving, and also make pretty party favors or additions to an Easter basket.
To begin, melt your chocolate until it is completely smooth. Stir to achieve the best consistency, then add enough to the center of the oval box (yes you pour right into the box!) so that the entire surface of the box is covered with chocolate allowing enough room for the bunny lollipop to be placed on top. Tap gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles. For the candy bar background you can keep it simple like I did and just use chocolate or toss in chopped nuts, micro marshmallows or tiny crisp rice pieces to your chocolate to give it some texture. You could also use the boxes for fudge. As the chocolate sets, this is when you will add your sprinkles to the surface of the chocolate. If you add them too soon they may sink into the chocolate. Set the chocolate filled boxes aside while you move on to the next step of making the chocolate bunnies for the top.
Prepare the white chocolate in the same manner as before. Trim paper straws in half and insert into the mold so that only about one and a half inches of length is visible below the mold. Add the white chocolate to the Easter Bunny lollipop mold until each one has been filled. Gently tap to remove any air bubbles. Allow the chocolate to chill for fifteen minutes or until set. You can put your mold into the fridge for 15 minutes to help it set faster. The lollipops remove best from the mold when the chocolate is fully set and chilled.
To finish your bunny candy box place a small drop of melted chocolate on the center of your candy bar background and add the completed Easter bunny lollipop. You want to use just enough chocolate to hold the bunny in place and to make it easy for someone to pull it off to enjoy. Add the lid, and your bunny candy box is ready to gift! Don't they remind you of the fancy decorated sugar eggs?!

Bunny Sugar Cookies with Marbled Fondant by Brittanie of Brittanie Bakes:
For my bunny projects I tried something new when it came to decorating my bunny sugar cookies. I'm definitely a newbie in the fondant world, but with quality fondant and cookie cutters you love, it's definitely not difficult to come up with a treat option that's sure to impress! The marbled look for the decoration on my cookies was created using Satin Ice Baby Blue fondant, a little bit of gel coloring to add a slightly darker shade, and Satin Ice White fondant as a bright contrast.
To make the marbleized fondant I intertwined fondant "worms" (you know, like we used to do with PlayDoh!), twisted it into a cinnamon roll shape, then rolled it out with my Wilton Fondant Roller. Sweet Sugarbelle cutters are perfect for any occasion, but the bunny shape I used on these a definitely a new favorite. It came with a cute bow tie cutter so my bunnies were dressed in style! I used the same cutters for the cookie cutter to cut out the fondant decoration for the tops of the cookies. Fondant applies easily to your favorite sugar cookies with the help of some pre-made frosting. Add a little of ready to use royal icing or buttercream to the top and spread with an offset spatula. Add your fondant cutout to the top and poof, you have the cutest bunny cookies! If you want to add a little extra detail you could speckle your cookies with Edible Art silver paint like I did. Pack in boxes to gift or add them to a Easter or spring cookie tray. These would even make pretty cookies for a birthday or baby shower. Change the colors of fondant used to fit your event.

Bunny Cakesicles by Amanda of A Few Cakes:
A fun way to start off the Easter treats season is with some cute bunny cakesicles! These would be the perfect addition to any Easter basket or treats table and will have your guests amazed by the cuteness!To decorate my bunny cakesicles I added the blush pink and light plum nonpareils to the eyes, ears and mouth, piped a little bit of candy melts onto the nose and painted it with Sweet Sticks pure gold edible art paint. I piped a line of the candy melts just under the ears where I added the Sprinklefetti Easter sprinkle mix and some for the cheeks as well. I also painted on some little eyelashes with black edible art paint.
These little bunnies were made with the Cute Bunny cakesicle mold. Wilton mini candy melts in turquoise and pink with white candy melts added to make them more pastel shade made the chocolate coating on my bunny mold. Melt the candy melts in the microwave, fill the molds about 1/4 of the way and use a small fan paint brush to brush the melted chocolate up the sides and in all the crevices in the mold. I inserted the metallic light pink popsicle sticks I am using in my cakesicles into the mold to create a hole and then took it back out again. I then did a second coat of Wilton candy melts on the sides just to thicken it up a bit more so it doesn’t crack. I inserted my stick in and out again and waited for the candy melts to set up. Then I added a cake pop style mixture (cake crumbs mixed with buttercream) leaving a gap on top for more candy melts, inserted my popsicle stick back in about halfway then heated up the candy melts and poured on top, making sure to tap the cakesicles so it all settled smoothly. Once completely set up, I flipped them upside down onto my silicone mat and pushed the cakesicles out (top first) working my way to the bottom and then pushing up gently on the stick to pull them right out.
