Over the past year Instagram and Facebook seemed filled with beautiful photos of the ever popular unicorn cake, and with Easter just around the corner I thought I would make my own bunny version. So instead of the unicorn horn, this has been replaced with 2 bunny ears along with the bunny nose on the front and the cute bunny tail on the back of the cake.
The Perfect Easter Cake
This cake is not just great for Easter, but if you have a rabbit lover who needs a birthday cake, or just want to create a fun design, this cake would be perfect. I have put together a step by step video tutorial showing exactly how I made the cake and you can see this below.
For the actual cake I baked 5 layers of 6 inch vanilla cake. Each layer was 1 inch in height and I filled the cake with a pink vanilla buttercream. This gave me a deep cake, just over 5 inches in height, which was the perfect size to create the rabbits face. The cake is then covered in icing / fondant with the facial features on the front of the cake also made from icing. For the ears I made these out of the Renshaw Modelling / gumpaste, as I needed these to set firmer in order for them to stay upright when pushed into the cake. I love how the bunny ears look on this cake, and as each new feature was added it really brought it to life.
The template for the ears
I have also created a template for the ears which you can download, print out and use on your own cakes. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE BUNNY EARS TEMPLATE
