I made this Easter Bunny cake for my family for Easter. I try to find any opportunity to make cakes so that I can practice my techniques. I used a yellow cake box mix. Instead of using oil in the mix, I used a Mountain Dew soda. It was made with an 8x3 in round pan. I also made chocolate ganache icing to cover the cake before adding the candies.
This was the first time I have made chocolate ganache, and I will definitely be doing it again. It was so easy and very yummy! Once the cake was covered in ganache I put the Kit Kat's around the cake. I found that it was easier to work with them in sections of 2. The bunny bum was made a ½ cake from the Wilton 3D ball pan, and covered in white fondant. The feet and tail are made from fondant.
I used some left over butter cream frosting for the tail to give it a fluffy look. Once I placed the bum on top of the 8in layer I poured the pastel colored M&M's around it so it looks like the bunny is digging into the candies. I then finished it off with a rainbow colored ribbon.
This was such an easy cake to make and super fun too.
