How do you make the Easter Bunny appeal to a 10 year-old? Give him a little street cred. That’s right, I’m talking about some sweet street bunny action with a little “Yo” and “Yeah” to have my kids think they’re cool. I see my boys bounce their heads to the groove and beat of iLoveMemphis’ “Hit The Quan” and I’m pretty impressed with their nifty moves. So, here’s a shout-out to my version of the Quan Bunny this Easter – y’all feel me?
Check out some of these hipster bunnies I drew. I wanted to give them a bit of modern street appeal.
Mix up your bunny cookies and play around by mashing in plaids, stripes, drips, and uneven speckles.
A Few Easy Steps For The Cookies:
- Sugar Cookies Recipe (see recipe below)
- Fun Bunny, Egg, and Mini Alphabet Cutouts (Williams & Sonoma)
I created some fun expressions like “Yo Fluffy” and “Yeah Bunny” to speak to my kids tummies.
The Royal Icing Decorating
Flooding & Wet on Wet Technique
The next part is flooding, which is the process of outlining and filling a cookie with royal icing. It takes a bit of getting used to, but once you get it down, the possibilities are endless.
I love using edible markers to help outline a drawing on a cookie. Edible Art in the making here!
I flooded the bunny in white, then created the backdrop in blue.
I put my street artist hat on and made these bad boys come to life with dripping bunny ears and splattered hashtag lettering.
Now for the ‘Yo Fluffy Bunny’ shrine. It’s always a challenge for me to not showcase each and every single cookie because individually they take up so much time to create. So, I figured that each one should get their own ‘due’ love .
So get your Quan Bunny cookies on and let your sweets bust their moves!

Love these super cute easter bunny cookies! The flooding technique is genius to make the icing perfect on each cookie. Thanks for the visual!
Thanks Lorna. Flooding takes a bit of practice, but it is fun every step of the way. Cheers –
I love how cute these are! The best part is that you walk through every step so I’m feeling more confident in trying to flood cookies! Easter Sunday is taken care of, thanks Cindy!
Take pictures Kendall and please let me know how it goes!
Absolutely adorable! What a fun Easter treat 🙂
I love a great bunny cookie! My kids got a kick out of the different bunny styles.
These are unbelievably cute! And I think they’d be great for adults, too 🙂
Awww shucks, I think adults will love them too. My bff goes crazy for sugar cookies. Cracks me up!
These are gorgeous. And you make it look so easy, I think I could actually pull this off!
For sure you can April. Please post pictures if you make them. Celeste and you will love it.
These bunnies do have street appeal 😀 OMG….how much fun would I have with these edible markers?! These look absolutely perfect, Cindy! They almost look to cute to eat…..almost 😉 Cheers, my friend!
Love that inner artist in all of us. And those edible markers make it like a huge art project. Good stuff.
Oh my gosh girl, yours look so perfect! I couldn’t do that! They are gorgeous.
Thanks Karen. It does take a bit of practice, but either way the cookie tastes great.
LMAO! I love that you gave the Easter bunny some street cred. Seriously, you crack me up!! These cookies are just gorgeous, girlfriend! You make flooding and decorating cookies look easy! I have the most shaky hands, so mine won’t have nearly as much “swag” as yours. 😉 So fun and SO perfect for Easter!! Cheers!
Thanks so much. I do love my street sweets, so this one was easy-flowin (so to speak). Easter bunny in the house!!!
