Cool Homemade 3D 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!

  1. 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 .

  2. 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…
