My What Cute Buns You Have, Mr. Cottontail!

They say imitation is the best form of flattery, right? I don’t know who they are, but I bet they know the same everyone who got to wear eyeliner in 5th grade. The same entire population who was allowed out past 11PM. At least in the summer.

Anyway, we will be the first to admit that we copied this adorable idea from Pinterest, one of our favorite addictions (we call it research around Epicurean because it makes it sound like we are hard at work).

Based on the feedback from Pinterest users, these Bunny Bun Buns (that’s what we’re calling them) may not turn out exactly like the ones in the picture. In fact, we are guessing the picture may have been photoshopped; not as much as Kim Kardashian, but way more than Nick Nolte.

We are sharing this idea a bit prior to the Easter holiday so you have time for a practice round. The woman who originally came up with this idea made these out of cookie dough and gives some visual instruction that seems helpful. The rest of her recipe is in a different language. No, we are not kidding. So for those of you who struggle with baking even when the recipe is in English, we suggest frozen Rhodes dinner rolls, small scissors, toothpicks, and a whole lot of faith. After all, that’s what Easter is all about. That and jelly beans. And those cute little Peeps. And – oh – don’t you love those Cadbury Eggs? And how about the chocolate bunny? The SOLID ones, not those dinky hollow things from the drugstore. And what about….okay, okay – we’re done now. Happy Easter!
