Recipe for Rice Krispie Treats


Melt 100g marshmallows with 20g shortening. Add 80g Rice Krispies and mix it.

The mass can be formed with well greased hands.

How To


1        First you have to make a dummy out of "Rice Krispie Treats" (recipe above). Make sure to have caves for the

         eyes.


2     Create a paper template for the ears and test it on the dummy for size and shape.

3      Cover the head of the rabbit with white fondant and model the little nose/mouth (y-shape) and cheeks. The eye

        sockets are also covered, but left hollow.

 

4      Roll out the flower paste and cut the ears using the template above. Glue the ears  with sugar glue to the head

        and shape them. 

5      Make two balls from fondant or flower paste for the eyeballs. Prior to insertion they can be freezed shortly so they

        retain their round shape. If necessary, the eye socket can be enlarged with a knife.  Place them with a little bit

        glue into the caves, and paint them with color paste/petal dust and alcohol. 

6    Make two small fondant sausages as long as an eye and place them as eyelids onto the eyeball and spread them

      outwards.  

 

7    In the next step you cover the dummy with fondant and give him a fur like structure with the veining tool.

      Pay attention to the direction of hair growth.

 

8    Paint the nose and the ears with pink petal dust first. Then mix the dust with water or alcohol to paint the veins

      with a very fine brush into the ears.

 

9    When the paint on the eyeballs is dried, dab some undiluted Confectioners Glaze on them to make them shiny.

     Attention: You can clean your brush only with high percent alcohol or a special dilution.  I applied the glace with a

     cotton swab. 

 

10   Finally cut some very fine stripes of wafer paper for the whiskers and the eye lashes. Glue them with a ultra tiny

      amount of sugar glue.
