Bake Easter Surprise – PopArt Easter

Bake colourful easter bunnies

One of the Easter surprises is the search for (filled) Easter eggs. But there can also be a surprise at the table. Instead of powdered sugar and traditional color decorations, just serve up some Easter bunnies in pop art design for once. Thanks to ready-made colorful glaze, this is also very easy to implement.

To make it really colorful, the dough and glaze have different colors. You can use conventional food colouring for the dough or natural colours such as beetroot powder and cocoa.

Now just pick a Farmix and get going.
