Frank the Bunny Cookies

      Happy Easter!

     I made these creepy bunny cookies to celebrate the beginning of spring with something terrifying. They're basic sugar cookies, cut into bunny shapes and decorated with a simple glaze, with white chocolate for the teeth and eyes. I brushed them with silver lustre dust to give them that eerie shimmer.

     While it's not strictly speaking a horror movie, Donnie Darko (2001) was one of my favourite films during my teen years. You'd be more likely to put it in the category of sci-fi, fantasy or drama, but it's still a creepy film that defies genre. The story is confusing and admittedly flawed, but the dark, stylish direction more than makes up for it. It's set in 1988, and Donnie is your average moody teenager played by a very cute Jake Gyllenhaal. However, Donnie has quite a spectacular problem. He is led out of his house one night by a terrifying, 6-foot-tall bunny who tells him that the world will end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. He has until then to find a way to stop it, all while getting the girl, taking down an annoying motivational speaker and figuring out why his new best friend is wearing that stupid bunny suit.

Now excuse me, I need to go back to grad school.

Check out another holiday sugar cookie I made: Gremlin Cookies.
