Pat Duran


This is the cutest cake ever- thanks to CM - and I saw it in Cooks Corner I think , but it was so darn cute that I had to share it with you all. A great big thank you to CM where-ever you are this is a fabulous cake!

Note: I suppose if you have a lamb cake mold you could alter it to resemble a bunny, if you choose.

1 loaf pan for cake




18 oz
cake mix flavor of choice
2 can(s)
white butter cream icing
candy easter egg shapes
brown jelly beans for eyes
pink jelly bean for nose
wooden toothpicks
green food coloring for grass,if desired or just white or chocolate frosting around bunny base

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat oven to 350^ Bake cake according to package directions and Pour into large loaf pan lined with a sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper.Spray inside and paper with cooking non-stick oil. Bake according to package directions. Allow cake to cool completely- best if baked the day before.
When cake is completely cooled, slice a 3-inch portion off the front at an angle as shown.Next, using a serrated knife, begin carving off the edges of the loaf into a rounded shape.
Slice off 2 of the corners and save for the ears. Carve a "V" shape groove 3 inches behind the sloped front to form the back of the bunny's head and neck. Carve off the square edges all around until you have a shape similar to the photo.
Place sheets of wax paper on serving plate,such as a cake stand. The paper will keep the plate clean while the bunny is being decorated. Place bunny form on the plate. When finished decorating bunny and before adding the frosting grass- or chocolate dirt...gently pull out wax paper.
Cover bunny with the frosting. Save some for the ears, and cover them too.Insert 2 wooden toothpicks into each ear and place on the bunny's head. Touch up ears and bunny with additional frosting. Place the eyes and nose jelly beans on now. You can decorate around bunny with colored frosting for grass and store bought candy flowers and candy Easter eggs.
