How to Make Simple Bunny Cookies with Video
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. Cute bunny cookies need cute bunny tushies .
If you need a cute Easter cupcake, place one of these bunny cookies on top. Shucks, you don’t even have to bake the cupcakes if you don’t want to. Pick some up from you local grocery store, pop a cookie on top and you will have an instant Easter treat. Perfect and simple. You’ve gotta love that!
Supplies to Make Simple Bunny Cookies:
Wilton Bunny Cookie Cutter
Royal Icing Colors:
Pink-White Icing with a touch of AmeriColor Super Red
4mm Black Pearl Dragees or black icing
Of course every cookie begins with a good sugar cookie and royal icing recipe. If you have one, great! If you need one, I would be honored if you gave mine a try. Here is my sugar cookie recipe and my Full Batch and Half a Batch of Royal Icing Recipe.
- 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.
- Pipe the cute little pink bunny tail.
- Let it dry overnight.
- 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.
Wouldn’t these make a great gift for teachers and co-workers? They are cute and you don’t have to mix many icing colors.

If you don’t have this cutter, I think you need it. Okay, maybe it’s my cookie obsession that thinks every cookie decorator in the world needs every cute cookie cutter ever made. I kinda wish I was Santa and I would make sure everyone got a stocking full of them.
