I made this pink bunny cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday to look like her "lovey", a stuffed pink bunny (that is about as flat as the cake now because she always sleeps with it).
I used 2 round pans, cutting one of them to make the ears and bow tie. I used cream cheese frosting with food coloring for the all-over pink and for the little details, using a zip-lock baggie and cutting off a very small tip from the corner.
For the appearance of fluff or fur I took a small plastic spatula and "picked up" the frosting. I used Junior Mints for the eyes and the decorations around the cake with some coconut.
I made the cakes the night before and tried to get them out of the pans the next morning - well, they wouldn't come out! I found a tip on the net - place the pan over an open flame or burner for about 15 seconds (wearing hot mitts of course) and the cakes slipped right out!
I remember my mother making us this cake when I was younger and I really enjoyed making it for my daughter.
This Bunny birthday cake is a twist on the classic bunny pattern. We've turned the bow tie into a hair bow. Perfect for the birthday GIRL! Our little bunny wanted her all in pink.
We used pink sugar crystals for her face and ears. We used jelly beans for her hair bow. To make the nose we clipped a large sized pink marshmallow along two sides. We used the small cake mate gel icing tubes for the facial details and two large almond M&M's for her eyes.
Our little bunny couldn't take her eyes off of her cake! She wanted to "help" so I gave her a paper plate to decorate right along with me using the exact same decorating items.
This is a Bunny Cake Idea I made for my niece. All I used was 2 circle pans. A pan was used for the face and the other was used for the ears and bowtie. I covered it with buttercream frosting and then I layered it with a marshmallow fondant.
