How to Use One Cookie Cutter to Make Bunny Face Cookies or Cute Little Bunny Tushies with a Video Tutorial | The Bearfoot Baker

I don’t know about you but I have about a million bunny cookie cutters. The last thing I needed to do was to go out and purchase a new one. I guess that deep down in my cookie obsessed mind I did need a new one so I bought the cute little Wilton one with the adorable floppy ear. It had a cute chick and sheep with it that I will add the many sheep and chick cookie cutters I have on hand, but I needed that bunny. You see the floppy little ear set my mind in overdrive. I saw a cute bunny face but I got really excited when I thought about flipping the cutter upside down to make a bunny tushy.

  • Bake a batch of sugar cookie and cut out that super cute little bunny. If you decorate him the way Wilton intended, you will get a face. If you flip it upside down, you will have a cute little bunny tushy. The way that little ear flops over is what totally inspired these cookies.
  • Outline the oval foot and then the rest of the bunny cutter.
  • Flood the left foot and the tushy area with the white icing.
  • Let it dry for about 10-20 minutes
  • Then, flood the oval foot with the white icing.
  • While the icing is wet, pipe the paws with the pink icing.
  • Let it dry for about an hour or so.

  • Outline and flood the bunny face with the white icing.
  • While the icing is wet, pipe the pink on the inside of the ears. I had to use the turkey lacer to help move the icing on the floppy ear.
  • Add the 4 mm black pearl dragees.
  • Let it dry for about 20 minutes.
  • Add the cheeks one at a time with the white icing. Let the icing dry for about 20 minutes before you add the second cheek. Piping them one at a time will allow the first cheek to crust over and help keep the cheeks separate so they don’t run together and make one big blob.
  • Let the cheeks dry for several hours and add the nose with the pink icing. If you don’t want to wait several hours, you can let the cheeks dry for about an hour and add a pink Jelly Bean.
  • Let the cookies dry overnight.
