Step 4: It's Time to Decorate Our Cake
- Design what we want to reproduce.
- We are going to use white fondant and food colourings
- We are going to do a rabbit and some carrots. Dye the correct amount of fondant to do each thing we want.
- We start giving shape to it, just let your imagination flow.
- To have more support you can use toothpicks or wood sticks.
- To make designs to the figures you can use a simple fork, knife, spoon or the previous toothpick.
- Very important to "glue" a piece of fondant with another use a little bit of water.
- To work well with fondant heat it well with your hands, NOT the microwave!!!
- If fondant sticks to your hands you can put a little bit of flour but not too much.

- Locate the other pie layer and cover again with cream cheese.
- Finally locate the figures you have done on top of it.
- And again back to the fridge because it can be melted the cheese cream.
- And ready to eat.
