I obviously had too much time on my hands this weekend. I wanted to make a project where I could use up some of my leftover fondant and color flow from my cake decorating classes. I saw these two projects online and thought they would be perfect.
I modified the projects a little. For the chicks I used color flow for the head and wings. I traced my leaf cutter for the shape of the wings. The downside to color flow is that it takes a long time to dry. I have to learn to be patient with it.
I used fondant for the bunny's ears, nose, and teeth. The eyes are made from mini chocolate chips. It took me a while to figure out how to make the ears even the the right size. I finally thought to use the leaf cutter but I only had one size cut out. Then I figured out that I could cut the white out in thicker pieces and then roll it out more with my rolling pin to make it bigger. I cut out the pink shapes with the same cutter but didn't roll it out anymore. I stacked the pink over the white and "glued" the two pieces of fondant with white butter cream. Unfortunately the ears drooped down the back side of the cupcake but I think they are still cute.
