Easter Bunny Cake
(Oak Park, IL)
Easter Bunny Cake
I made this Easter Bunny Cake for Easter brunch. It's a carrot cake made from scratch (what else do bunnies eat?) and is filled and frosted with Cream Cheese frosting. I used the recipe from this site, which is very good because it's not overly sweet.
I filled the layers with cream cheese frosting then tinted the rest green and frosted the top and sides of the cake.
I made the Easter bunny and his basket out of fondant and put them in the fridge to harden. The basket is made by rolling out long ropes of pink and pale orange fondant and then twisting them together. I made a circle for the bottom of the basket, then just attached a long rope that I wound upward in circles to make the basket (using a little water to attach the levels of the basket to each other. Last thing was the handle, also attached with a little water.
The "eggs" falling out of the basket are jelly-belly jelly beans.
The grass on the sides was made with the directions on this site for using candy melts and green coloring and painting grass onto wax paper.
