I quarter sheet cake (9x13), cut in half, filled and stacked
Non-crusting buttercream, or thick ganache
Ruler – with good straightedge
Pme cutter, or pizza cutter
White chocolate, colored to match fondant
Use milk chocolate if your box is brown
Edible markers and/or luster dust
Roll out fondant for box and lid the night before you want to decorate the cake. This allows the fondant to stiffen and makes it easier to handle.
If you want you box to be all one color then cover cake and cut out box lid in the same color
If you want a contrasting box and lid, then cover the cake in one color for the box,
and Roll and cut the lid in a different color.

Place over yellow centers in mold. Gently press the petals into the mold.
Place on stem, gently pressing into the mold.
Spoon into molds, tilting to coat the sides,
continuing to rotate the mold slightly to cover the sides with a nice thick layer of chocolate.
If some spills over the edge,
just scrape off with the flat side of a spatula.
Roll out a small amount of pink and place in the center of the ears.
and buttons on the front of bunny, if desired.
(being careful not to burn it, 30 seconds, med power should be plenty, but keep a watchful eye)
and brush a little onto on side of the pastels to attach to the bunny.
We don't want our Easter Bunny empty handed!
The chocolate eggs should be set up.
Allow the eggs and base to loosen.
then gently afix the decorated side of the egg on top.
then add the butterflies to cover the seam.
then set the egg on top of the base.
And add a little butterfly to his foot,
just because it's spring!
It sifts from leaden sieves,
It powders all the wood,
It fills with alabaster wool
The wrinkles of the road.
It makes an even face
Of mountain and of plain, —
Unbroken forehead from the east
Unto the east again.
It reaches to the fence,
It wraps it, rail by rail,
Till it is lost in fleeces;
It flings a crystal veil
On stump and stack and stem, —
The summer's empty room,
Acres of seams where harvests were,
Recordless, but for them.
It ruffles wrists of posts,
As ankles of a queen, —
Then stills its artisans like ghosts,
Denying they have been.
