For decorating

  • Using electric whisk cream together vegan cream cheese and maple syrup. Try and adjust sweetness if needed. Add matcha powder to colour it and continue whisking until light and fluffy
  • For BUNNIES Make the Raffaello following the instructions on my Instagram For PAWS Warm up the coconut butter slightly and mix it with the powdered sweetener of your choice. Taste and make sure you like the level of sweetness If it is too liquidy place it in the fridge for a few minutes so it solidifies slightly for about 2-3 minutes After that, it should be nice and thick but still pliable Form the paws and place them in the fridge to set completely(7-8 minutes) To the remaining coconut butter add few drops of water and strawberry or raspberry juice to colour it After the paws have set, draw pink dots on top of them to complete the design Leave in the fridge till needed
