Happy Easter!!! 'Peek-a-Boo' - Sugar Painting Tutorial


Hi everyone!

This Easter, I didn’t know what to do… Literally… I thought about eggs, then bunnies, then bunnies in eggs, then I forget about it…

Suddenly, yesterday when I was navigating through Pinterest, a cute drawing appears on my screen, like a “peek-a-boo” hello. I’ve had bought a couple of picture frames last weekend, and then I had an idea. Why not just make a simple edible portrait? A little photoshop touch and the design was created. 

Now I have my Easter project and it was so simple, but I think is soooooooo adorable!!!Then I thought, I could film the process and share to all of you. And I did. Below there is the materials I used and the video. 


  • Modelling sugar paste

  • Brushes (flat #2, round #5/0, #3/0, #8, #12)

  • Confectioners Glaze

  • Lemon Extract

  • Gel food colour: super black and ivory

  • Dust food colour: white (if needed), yellow (daffodil), orange (berberis), pink (rose), green (vine), blue (hydrangea), light brown, chocolate brown

  • Pencil

  • Palette tray

I hope you like it! If you have any questions, or just want to say hello, please do. For more pictures of this painting, click here: PEEK-A-BOO
