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.

Bunny lovers are used to getting bunny-related gifts, both good and bad. But this gift took us even by surprise.

An Easter gift for Bunfectionary

We think it is a part of hand-painted sign advertising baked goods in a store, probably from around World War II. Needless to say, it will stay not be put away with the other Easter items.

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.

Bunny Macarons

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.

Bunny shaped French Macarons (for people!)

Please don’t scream when you see these utterly cute treats–bunnies have such sensitive ears! While researching French Macarons for Bunfectionary’s newly-introduced line of treats, Bunny Biscotti Macarons, we came across this inventive take on the traditional French Macaron.

 


The author includes directions for making these as well as a recipe. (We prefer the Cooks Illustrated recipe, which is posted all over the web.) You gotta love someone who attached chocolate sprinkles with tweezers.

Got Fur? Fur the Birds!

If you are like us, your home has been under seige by shed fur, with dust bunnies (real bunny fur!) growing to the size of baby bunnies in the blink of an eye. What to do with all that soft, lovely, and super warm fur after you have gathered it? Why not set it out for our fine feathered friends to line their nests with soft insulation that will keep them and their chicks warm. Unlike other fibers such as cotton, nylon, polyester or laundry lint, fur and wool stay warm even when wet, so they are ideal for nest building. (Think wet jeans vs a a wet wool sweater.)

Fur the Birds

Fur the Birds are individually handmade of naturally grown wood (no herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers). Hardwood dowels allow birds to perch, while the bark allows finches and others to hang upside down or along the side. Just stuff the fur into the openings with a stick (we find a demolished willow candy cane works great), and hang near your feeders, or in an area safe from predators. We find that rubbing fur between your palms to make a “yarn” makes it easier to handle.

Species of wood vary. Length, not including hook is 10″. Wood perches are 5″. Thickness will vary. They have not been treated with paint or wood preservatives.  These are not meant for rabbits. As with any product dealing with wildlife, it is recommended that you wash your hands thoroughly after handling.
