3D easter egg and bunny

Hand-made 3D easter egg and bunny

Just before Easter the lovely peeps at Lékué sent me the 3D easter egg and bunny mould and a decopen. I filled my bunny and egg mould with white chocolate and then, using the decopen filled with white chocolate coloured blue, I drew a graffiti squiggle over the top; a great gift for my cute nephew Samuel who loves bunnies and puzzles!

What you will need:

Lékué 3D easter egg and bunny mould


Instructions
  1. Temper (melt) white chocolate
  2. Spoon chocolate into icing bottle or bag fitted with a small nozzle
  3. Squeeze chocolate into moulds
  4. Lightly tap moulds so chocolate lays flat and air bubbles are removed
  5. Stir blue chocolate food colouring a little at a time into the remaining white chocolate until you have desired colour. Stir well so colour is even
  6. Fill decopen with blue melted chocolate and carefully draw design onto filled moulds
  7. Lightly tap moulds so chocolate lays flat and air bubbles are removed
  8. Leave to set. Refrigerating speeds up this process and can make it easier to turn out
  9. Carefully release the eggs and bunny from the moulds
  10. Assemble egg and bunny

Lékué decopen

The decopen comes with two, four or six nozzles and can be used to decorate cakes and biscuits with messages, create ball, flower, rope and shell shapes; make toppings for your cupcakes and exquisite macaroons or profiteroles. I can't wait to use it again on my sweet treats!

Have a sweet day!
