There’s no better way to decorate your Easter baking than with this cheerful chap, the perfect combination of cheeky and cute.

You could use him with other Easter-themed decorations on a large cake or top cupcakes with a little rabbit each - let your imagination go wild.

Once made, you can keep these in a breathable cake box for a good few days, letting you get ahead on your Easter prep.

The amounts make 1 bunny but you can double or triple the ingredients if you want to make more - you could also choose to make your bunnies a smaller or bigger size, or even a different colour - the choice is yours!
