Donut Cutter with Removable Center
Wilton 46-Piece Deluxe Cake Decorating Set
A few tricks will help you execute these fun cookies. We used a donut cutter with a removable center. Here let me show you a picture.
Cute huh? Amber then shaped the little round middles into ovals for the feet. Once baked she iced and then glued them into place.
Amber flooded the cookies with a slightly thicker icing and didn’t use a border or outline on these. She used a small tip like a Wilton 3 to add the dots for the feet and a Wilton 233 (as shown) for a fluffy tail with just a slightly thicker frosting. This tip can also make great grass for cupcakes and many other uses.
These cookies were fun to make for her and even more fun to eat!! The cookies freeze well either plain or decorated once dried. Enjoy thinking of spring now as it is coming quickly. Let the sun shine and the warm breezes begin!!
Bunny Bum Cookie Recipe
Bunny Bum Cookies
Cute little Bunny Bum Cookies will make anyone smile. Make up a big batch and have them at the ready in the freezer now for Easter.
- Sugar Cookies
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ½ cup white corn syrup
- pinch of salt
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 3¼ cups flour
- 4 cups confectioners' sugar
- 3 Tbsp. meringue powder
- 5-6 Tbsp. water, plus more to thin
- Food colouring, liquid or gel
- For the sugar cookies, in a stand up mixer cream butter and sugars together and then beat in eggs until well mixed. Add vanilla and syrup and mix well. Whisk together dry ingredients and add slowly, mixing well until all is incorporated. Chill the dough well, best if done overnight. Roll out dough onto a well floured surface and cut using a donut cutter with the middle removed. Bake at 325F for 8-10 min. on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Let cool 5 min. on the tray and then remove to further cool on a cooling rack.
- For the icing, add the ingredients to a standup mixer with a paddle attachment and mix for 5-7 min. until soft and glossy, if too thick add more water. Add additional water to thin to a toothpaste consistency. Take out about ½ cup for piping the tails. Thin the rest of the icing sugar to a corn syrup consistency, continuing to beat. Colour about 1/2 cup pink with food colouring. Place in piping bags with number 2 tip for the pink, number 233 for the thicker icing for the tails and a number 7 to ice the cookies themselves. Cover any remaining icing with a damp towel. Once the cookies are dry to the touch attach the decorated feet with a small amount of icing.
- Let cookies dry for 1-2 days before storing.
- Cookies freeze well and also last in a sealed container for a couple of weeks.
- Tip: This recipe makes a lot, you can make other shapes for different holidays and have them ready in the freezer to ice for later if desired.

How many cookies does this recipe make?
Tara Noland says
The recipe makes a lot so beware, we have used it for a few holidays and frozen cookies. It is really hard to say how many as everyone’s cookie cutters are different sizes and varied shapes. You can also freeze the dough for later use too.
