Easter Cake Idea: Tower of Bunnies

This was my first time working with homemade fondant. I was inspired by the season of Spring and Easter and by a picture/link I found on Pinterest on How to Make Marshmallow Fondant.

As much as I was inspired I was also psyching myself to do well by repeating in my head, "I will not be a Cake Wreck I will not be a Cake Wreck. Must. Forge. Ahead. Quit talking to yourself. Well I'm only crazy if I answer myself. Right? Right."

What I used:
1 16 oz bag of Small Marshmallows
1 16 oz bag of Confectioners Sugar/Icing Sugar
2 12 ct. packages of each color (Pink, Yellow & Blue) of Bunny Peeps
Canned icing to glue Bunnies to cake
1/2 cup of Butter
Non stick butter spray
Wilton Roll-N-Cut Fondant mat
Wooden rolling pin
Random kitchen utensils to smooth fondant

  • I used the entire bag of marshmallows, almost the entire bag of confectioners sugar, plenty of butter, non stick butter spray and whole lot of determination. Followed the instructions on Clockwork Lemon's blog.
By the time I was done with rolling and kneading fondant, my apron and house shoes were covered in powdered sugar. Here is a pic of the aftermath. Oh yeah, I also don't have the basic bakers utensils so I used a flat spatula, wooden rolling pin covered in non stick butter spray and glass bowl to smooth my fondant. Haha. Rookie, I know.

Not too bad for a first-timer, huh? 

Place bunnies onto cake by glueing them with your canned icing. Press gently as you shape Peeps around cake. And Voila!!

Cake was homemade white cake mixed with Berry Blue Jell-O powder.
