Easter means two things to me: Cute, fluffy bunnies, and candy. Since I would hate to pass up the opportunity to celebrate pretty much any holiday, despite my pitiful lack of knowledge about it, I set about making the most festive sweet treat I could muster.
Thank goodness I still had a marshmallow kit from Angel Food, which had admittedly expired six months ago, but still worked just as promised. Thick, billowing clouds of marshmallow-y goodness were soon whipping around the beater of my mixer, dyed a pastel pink thanks to the pomegranate juice I substituted for water. Peeps are pretty much the epitome of Easter to me, but it would be a stretch to try piping out those iconic shapes, so instead the mallow was set in a baking dish, to be cut out later into appropriate shapes.
Lightly dusting the counter, knife, cookie cutter, and entire kitchen with powdered sugar, tiny pink bunnies were soon taking shape.
Carefully poking those microscopic ears and tails out of the metal form, it seemed like a task that would last me all day. Little did I know that like the real thing, this rabbits can really multiply in no time…!
