Every Easter for as long as I can remember my family has a made an annual bunny cake. It’s a fun tradition I’m excited to continue with our own little girl.
It’s so simple to make. Start by making your favorite cake batter. (We always use chocolate.) Pour it into two round cake pans and bake. After the cakes have cooled, leave one cake round and cut the other into two ears and a bow tie. The ears come from the edges and the bow tie is the space left in the middle. This sketch I made for a friend shows how.
Then put the pieces on a cookie sheet in the shape of a bunny with a bow tie.
Then comes the fun part – decorate the bunny! Frost the cake and add eyes, a nose, and a mouth. Frost the inside of the ears with pink. We always like to decorate the bow tie with m&ms, but you could use any candy of your choice. It’s sure to be a special part of your Easter celebration!
