Run away, run away–Rabbit’s Revenge, Holy Hand Grenade

Run away, run away!

The Rabbit of Caerbannog has returned with his own Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch!

Holy Hand Grenade, Rabbit's Revenge

But the only thing to explode will be your bunny as he binkies with joy at getting this grass and willow ball festooned with delicious yucca dyed with Bunfectionary’s own spinach and beet dyes. Big raffia ears replace the cross on top. And deep inside is a small paper bag filled with Timothy hay, crumbled Bunny Biscotti, dehydrated carrot and beet pulp.

Now, go change your armor!

Tinker, tinker, tinker

Each Bunny Biscotti batch we make, we seem to discover something new about making our treats. Since each batch is made by hand, we’ll experiment with the methods, although the ingredients always stay  the same. For example, with our own summer  fennel sprouting in our gardens, we add fresh green fennel fronds to the mix instead of the ground fennel bulb we add in the winter. Or last night we discovered that juiced beets provide better color than pureed beets. It tastes the same, or so Tilbert and Violet seem to say, but we think you’ll appreciate the extra steps it takes to produce the more vivid color.
And despite having molds made for smaller treats, we have decided to return to our original shape, the biscotti, or to be proper, the Italian cantucci. The hay stems, panicles, and leaves can remain longer, there is less chafe during shipping, and are much faster to produce.  The other shapes will be available by special order.

Here come the Bunny Macarons!

We just finished up a new batch of our Bunny Biscotti Macarons, and even made a donation of our new boxed set to the Rabbit Meadows dinner and auction. (No pictures until the big unveiling!) The box was part of our “Parisian Collection” with BunnyBytes, and included the Bunny Clutch Purse and the Bun-glasses.

Macarons for bunnies

Yucca slices are naturally dyed with fruits and vegetables to achieve the same beautiful hues of regular French (Parisian) Macarons. Left to right are beet, carrot, spinach, and blueberry. All our filled with our own Banana Bunny Biscotti Hay Treat mixture, made with whole Timothy hay, pumpkin, and banana.

Bunny Violet chases her purse

Violet enjoys her Bunny Clutch Purse in this video. She chases her woven grass “purse” around to get at the hay inside. This is why I sometimes find it clear down the hallway. Although there is a whole bundle of equally fresh grass readily accessible just 6 feet away, she prefers the challenge of getting it from the purse. There are a few treats mixed in, like broken Bunny Biscotti, dried carrot, and dried fennel fronds. Designed by Bunfectionary, sold by www.BunnyBytes.com.

Trademarking the Bunfectionary grass bunny

We just received notice that no opposition was filed against the publication of the Bunfectionary logo! Just a few steps away from replacing the little TM with the encircled R to designate it as a REGISTERED trademark. We never have looked so forward to reprinting our cards, labels, and letterhead.

Our label assures the customer of the quality and care of our products, from our own Bunny Biscotti made with whole Timothy hay to our toys to Harvest Naturals.

Flower Garden Bunny Biscotti–making

Each batch of our handcrafted Flower Garden Bunny Biscotti begins with over 3 quarts of dried flowers, including roses, calendula, chamomile, and lavender. With just a bit of fresh apple, they are perhaps the least sweet of the Bunny Biscotti line, but they are the most fragrant. The entire line of Bunny Biscotti is now available at BunnyBytes. Be sure to tell them  Violet sent you! Click here to learn more about Bunny Biscotti.

Just in time for Easter, Bunfectionary releases its new line of Bunny Biscotti Macarons. In vibrant colors and soft pastels, these may look good enough, but they are strictly for the bunnies and other herbivores. The inside filling is our own Bunny Biscotti, full of Timothy hay and flavored with ripe bananas and cinnamon. The exterior shells are sliced yucca, hand dyed with fruit and vegetables, including red and golden beets, spinach, carrots, blueberries, and mango. Click here to learn more about Bunny Biscotti.
