  1. These bonbons look delicious! I came across your blog as I was searching for paper mache bunnies. The Get Your Martha On blog has been discontinued and no one online has posted how she made them. I know that you made a few paper mache bunnies using her instructions. I was wondering if you could either do another post or leave a message on my blog about how to make them. They're so cute!
