Now that I am done with these I realize they probably look better without glaze or I should have just used a thin transparent one. Once I started with the pink glaze it was only a short hop to sprinkling pink sanding sugar on them and attempting to give them faces. They look a bit demented, not unlike some goat lamb cookies I made last year. They do look slightly cuter in person. Promise.
For the choux part I used Tish Boyle's recipe. It always works perfectly for me.I piped the batter in the shape of a bunny by making and round part for the body, attached a smaller round shape on top for the head, then piped the ears and the feet.
A bag of Mexican key limes at Trader Joe's recently found their way into my shopping basket.
They were looking ignored and lonely in the fridge so using Martha Stewart's recipe, I turned them into curd.
Then filled the bunny bellies and heads with the curd.
I used a vanilla glaze recipe from All recipes, colored it pink and dipped the filled chox bunnies into it. Edible pearls with dots of black royal icing became eyes, a large black candy sequins became a nose and black sprinkles formed whiskers.
