FF, I am very impressed with your baking skill! Though I've never heard of the Bunny Cake, I am familiar with cakes using this method. Just want you to know that you've done nothing to help my diet (LOL).

*Save me a piece!!!*

I bet that when the folks at walmart asked if you were making a easter bunny cake they showed you the various models you can buy pre-made and decided to show it off as your own. Im just kidding of course but it does like a cake you could only buy at a higher priced bakery. By the way, my mom used to bring cakes home, get rid of all the packaging, place it on a tray and tell everyone she'd slaved all day over it just so we could eat it 3 minutes or less. I'm still amazed at how good of a job you've done there.... Congrats and I hope the car ride treats it well.

Thank you everyone! I am pretty proud of the little creation. I actually used to compete in baking competitions and the highest I ever ranked was 4th in the state. But that was a LONG time ago. My problem is, I do not have the slightest bit of creativity in my body.

Mazda- My fiance's mother is convinced that I bought it at a bakery and am pawning it off as my own. Next time I make one, I will be sure to take pictures of the entire process so she actually believes me. My mother also does the "Bakery cooking" thing too. She buys pies from the store and takes them to holidays and tells everyone that she made them. it's kind of funny because one year the store had put the ingredient sticker on the bottom of the tin and when my aunt picked it up she noticed it and called her out on it. My mom played it off as she wanted everyone to know what ingredients were in the pie in case there were food allergy issues. Oh geez, it is a pecan pie!

I really appreciate everyone's compliments. I guess the cake is actually something that many people make.

One of my friends growing up was born around Easter, so her B-Day cake was always the Bunny Cake. Her mom used coconut sprinkled over the top to give it a furry look.

I come from a long line of bunny cake makers, here, and icing them is probably the most difficult thing about them. You are trying to get icing on the cut edges, which crumble and are tricky to ice. The trick is to bake your cake, cut it out, and then freeze the pieces. Ice it frozen and it is so much easier to handle.

I use coconut too, except for the bow tie, which is what you can do with the piece in between the two ears that is leftover.

I have never made the bunny cake, but I am for sure going to try it next year. That is TOO cute!

YEAH! I was wondering if anyone else made it with a bow tie.

My sister in law made it with the bow tie this year and it looked cute. But of course, mine was prettier. Then again, I am bias.

Yours is extremely neat and very well done, so you should be very proud of your creation!

My mother used to use that plastic grass you use in baskets under the cake until everyone got sick of picking it out of the icing, so one day she finally started using green colored coconut, and that really is a nice touch.

Yes, the coconut dyed green looks just like grass. James' fingers were green for two days though (he mixed up the food coloring and coconut). That was his ONLY contribution. Well, no, that's not true. He DID walk in the house with it and announce that HIS cake looked gorgeous! Poor guy, can't even make a frozen pizza without screwing it up.
