The bunny cookie dough

1. Cream to­gether 1 cup of but­ter and ½ cup of sugar us­ing an elec­tric beater and a large mix­ing bowl. Add half a can of con­densed milk and mix well.

2. Sift 2.5 cups cake flour, 2t bak­ing pow­der and a pinch of salt into the but­ter mix­ture and mix well.

3. Press the dough flat and cover with cling wrap. Re­frig­er­ate for half an hour.

4. Roll the dough out on a flour-sprin­kled sur­face. Use a bunny-shaped cookie cut­ter to cut out the bun­nies.

5. Heat the oven to 160°C and bake the cook­ies for about 10 min­utes un­til golden brown. Re­move from the oven and al­low to cool.

Ic­ing (for the cookie)

1. Mix 250g sifted ic­ing sugar with 1 large egg white, lightly beaten. The con­sis­tency should be like tooth­paste. Spoon the ic­ing into a plas­tic sand­wich bag, knot the open end and cut a tiny hole in the other end. Squeeze the ic­ing around the outer edge of the cookie and then fill in the in­ner part.

2. Colour the re­main­der of the ic­ing with pink food colour­ing. Spoon into a sand­wich bag and snip the tip off. Use this to make an eye for the bunny.

Green but­ter ic­ing (for the grass)

1. Mix 250g of soft but­ter and 250ml sifted ic­ing sugar un­til the mix­ture is light and white. Colour with green food colour­ing.

2. Colour 250ml des­ic­cated co­conut with green food colour­ing. Fi­nal touches: Ice the top of the cup­cake with the but­ter ic­ing and sprin­kle co­conut over. Press the bunny cookie into the cup­cake to make it look as if the bunny is sit­ting in the grass.
