Homemade Bunny Birthday Cake

I made this Bunny Birthday Cake for my daughter's first birthday, which happened to fall on Easter. The 3D cake pan I used was from Williams Sanoma. My first practice cake, I only used one cake mix, and the ears didn't turn out complete, so for the final product I used 1 1/2 cake mix.

Once cooled, I leveled each side with a bread knife, then froze each half separately for an hour. I then combined the halves with buttercream frosting and froze for another hour. Freezing made decorating a lot easier. I used a star tip to decorate the body of the bunny and a larger star tip for the tail. I added some green frosting around the legs with some sugared flowers that I purchased at a cake decorating store, as it was too difficult to get the frosting to take to the underside of the bunny.

For the eyes, I outlined them with black frosting. Lastly, for the ears, I just piped in some pink frosting. Except for the time, it was a pretty easy cake to decorate and my daughter loved it!

I have this cake pan. I usually do not
use the star tip to decorate the bunny.
I spread vanilla or cream cheese frosting
all over and then press coconut all over the
bunny. You kind of have to press the coconut
into the frosting. Then I dye some coconut
green for the grass under then bunny and add
jelly bean eggs in the grass. I also use a
pound cake instead of a regular cake mix. It keeps the ears more stable because it is a heavier cake .

Wow!! That is adorable! My daughter's first Birthday is a week after Easter and I thought of doing a 3D bunny for her but unfortunately I have not come across any 3D bunny cake tins in SA. Don't know how I am going to shape the bunny since I'm not the greatest artist...

Coolest Easy Bunny Cupcake Cake 5

Easy Bunny Cupcake Cake

I’m surprised I haven’t seen postings of bunny cakes this easy, yet. For the grass, I dropped a few drops of green food coloring in whipped store-bought frosting. I added some green sugar sprinkles for effect.

To make the bunnies, I used half a powdered mini-donut for each body. I used my own white frosting (1 cup powdered sugar, 2T shortening, 2T butter, and milk until I got a soft but thick texture, about 2tsp) and piped it on to make the heads and cottontails.

The ears are made from large marshmallows, which I squished so that the round flat part became oval. Using kitchen shears, I cut a cross section of that oval, then cut it again lengthwise. Since these pieces were sticky, I could press one side of them into pink sprinkles, and the ears stuck easily in place on the body.

For the noses, I used strawberry Nerds candy and for the eyes, I used round color sprinkles. I think it took about an hour or so to decorate 24 cupcakes.

Coolest Bunny Cake Ever 54

Homemade Bunny Cake Ever

Here's a simple cake to make for a special child's birthday. I simply baked a cake in 2 round 9" cake pans, then cut 2 ears out of one to attach to the complete circle head. The leftover in the center of the "ear" cake made a sweet bow tie for under the bunny face.

I baked it 2 days in advance and froze it in the freezer to make it firm and easy to frost. I made a basic butter cream icing with butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and water. You can keep this moist until you're ready to use it by draping the bowl with a dampened cloth.

For decorations I used jelly beans, red licorice and some red sanding sugar. It was fun to see my little girl's face light up in delight, and I'm sure its a cake she'll never forget.

I would try this one again in a heartbeat, very easy and cute.

I took 4 round cake pans for this Homemade Bunny Cake Idea. Cut all 4 in half, used 3 halves to make the body. They were all standing on the cut side with icing between to hold them together. I took another half, cut it again, used the 2 pieces and shaped it down to make the head.

I did the same for the "legs". I used a small piece from the halves to make the ears. Covered in white frosting and used jelly beans for eyes. I used the cupcake frosting from a can for the tail and grass. You may need to use toothpicks to hold some pieces together. Just remember where you put them before giving out slices.

Coolest Easter Bunny Cake 35

Homemade Easter Bunny Cake

This Easter Bunny Cake is a peppermint angle food cake. The cake inside is pink and white marbled. The glaze is peppermint flavor and I finely crushed up peppermint candy and sprinkled it on the wet glaze.

This really makes it sparkle. Then I just stuck the marshmallow bunnies and whole peppermints alternately around the cake.
