i mean….does it really get cuter than a bunny cake?! I think not! this build-a-bunny cake is thanks to the lessons of mama G. i tell the story like this, every Easter my brothers and i made this cake with our mom as kids. however, when i told mom we were making this for the blog, she said “i can’t believe you remember making that cake. i think we only made it one time.” needless to say, i was a little crushed to hear her say that. i guess when you’re a child your imagination really does run a little wild and you only remember life the way you want to. oh, well. maybe someday when i have my own children we’ll be sure to make this EVERY Easter! hehe :)
step one: bake your cakes.
Using your favorite cake recipe, prepare two cakes in 9″ round cake pans. bake, remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
step two: cut your cake
only one of your cakes will be cut to form the ears and the fancy bow tie! cut the cake as shown below:
step three: assemble your bunny
this should be self explanatory…ears at the top….bow tie at the bottom…i mean, there’s a picture if you really need it:
step four: frost your bunny
step five: decorate your bunny
while we decorated our bunny piece by piece….laura fell into the typical spindler pattern and gave the bunny a name: edward….my husband then gave edward a voice…oh dear, thank goodness this blog doesn’t have audio. :) please enjoy this adorable bunny cake, not only for easter, but for spring time and birthdays too! we love edward and hope that you too will want to create a new friend. (don’t get too attached though….cause then you might have trouble eating him)
