- Modelling Paste

Cover cakes and board in a Spring Green sugarpaste. Dowel, stack and attach a ribbon. Stack the bottom tier to the back of the board and the 2nd tier to the back as well.
Using a fine paint brush 00 and green powder colour mixed with clear alcohol, paint the grass at the bottom of each cake.
To make the picket fence, roll-out some white modelling paste.
Using a rolling pin, press KSD Wood Panel firmly to get the wood effect and cut out approximately 10 picket fences and attach to the side of the bottom tier with some edible glue.
Make 7 rabbits using KSD Sugar Buttons Rabbit mould in different colours and attach the ears with edible glue. Dust the feet, ears and nose with pink powder colour and allow to dry before royal icing them to the cake.
To get the rabbits to sit up, leave some excess paste at the back of the body.
Using a small ball tool, indent marks for the whiskers.
For easy animal eyes, glue 2 small black pearls for the eyes and then paint some eyelashes.
Using the KSD Basket and Flowers mould, make a basket and dust with some powder colour. Leave this to dry overnight so it hardens.
Using KSD Basket mould, make lots of tiny flowers and colour them before royal icing them onto the cake and up the picket fence. Save a few to put on the top of the plant pots.
Make several carrots using the Sugar Buttons Rabbit mould by starting off with a small amount of green paste and then add orange paste. Attach to the basket and place them around the cake.
Using the KSD Garden Accessories mould, make a watering can, wellingtons, trowel and fork.
To make the plant pots stand up. Make 2 and glue them back-to-back. Roll your thumb and finger to get them more rounded.
Colour all of the accessories mixing powder colours and clear alcohol.
If you want a good shine on your wellingtons, paint some edible glaze once they are coloured.
Make the lettering with KSD Manuscript Alphabet and glue to the base of the board.
Lastly, place a few mini-Easter eggs with royal icing to make this a fun Easter cake.
