In this blog, you’ll find Peter Rabbit Cake Ideas and Tutorials! I’m a little bit obsessed with bunny rabbits, I have two adorable furry friends who have the run of my garden, and nothing beats the joy of watching them hop skip and play from my kitchen window whilst I’m butter creaming and ganching my cakes. I used to have 14 of them, Oopsie! Let’s not get me started on that story, you can imagine!

As a cake maker, my love for Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit naturally spills over into my designs, perfect for christenings, baby showers, or birthday celebrations. That’s why I’ve crafted a ‘fondant Peter Rabbit cake topper tutorial’ to help you create your very own cute bunny cake topper.

Before we dive into the tutorial, let’s hop over to some unique ‘Peter Rabbit cake design ideas’. I’ve selected a few that stand out from the usual two-tiered designs, adding a dash of creativity that I hope will inspire your next baking project!

One of my personal favourites is a pink, girly Flopsy rabbit cake designed for a christening. Merging the classic Beatrix Potter watercolour aesthetic with my love for creating fondant and clay figurines, I fashioned a fondant Flopsy rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck cake topper, and hand-painted watercolour flowers and little chicks with gel colours. It’s all about adding that personal touch, like the painted ‘O’ for the sweet little Olivia.

No more searching the bottom of your kitchen drawers in the hope of finding one and then not knowing where to add it to the cake that doesn’t ruin the beautiful design. You can purchase the large fondant/cookie number cutters in a set including the wicks. [shop candle cuts here]
