Bunny Cake: Part Two


Right now my sister is still sleeping and the Bunny is hiding eggs, so I figured I’d take advantage of some quiet time that I likely will not have the rest of the day and update the ol’ blog!


After yesterday’s doggie 5k race, everyone was pretty tired! While I blogged, the whole family, including Sadie the Race Dog, napped.

Once everyone was awake, we headed out on the boat for a two-hour boat ride in the beautiful sun. About an hour into our ride, we saw three dolphins and one was an itty-bitty baby! I’ve never seen such a young dolphin. The baby was so teeny!!!

Once we got back home, we all showed and got ready for church.

Ready to Go

Uno Mas

Right outside of our church, there was a pen of bunnies and baby chicks that were rescued by a young man. He allowed people to hold the animals, so of course my sister and I took full advantage and held a peeping little chick.

Me & Chick

Two Chicks

Apparently the mama hen was killed by a coyote, so the little chicks were all on their own. They seemed to be doing really well and were beyond adorable.


After church, we were a hungry bunch and headed out to dinner at The Clubhouse.

All of my foodie pictures came out dark, but dinner was delicious! We split cheeseburger sliders as an appetizer and I enjoyed sushi and miso soup for my entrée. My dinner also came with fried bananas and ice cream which were surprisingly good!

Bunny Cake Number Two

Post-dinner, we headed home where I immediately got to work on BUNNY CAKE NUMBER TWOOOO!

Since Bunny Cake Number One was tasty and didn’t last 24 hours in our house, I knew I had my work cut out for me on my second attempt.

I made the second bunny cake using funfetti cake mix (I love this stuff!) and whipped fluffy white icing.

The Process

After a lot of cutting, frosting, and shaping, the bunny was ready for decorating.

Bun Bun

I made him fluffy with shredded coconut, and used jelly beans and twizzlers for his facial features.

Eat Me!

We haven’t sliced into this bunny cake yet because I am taking it to Ryan’s family’s Easter lunch.

I do know that the cake is pretty tasty thought because we had some cake scraps leftover, which we iced up and devoured immediately last night. 😉

Bunny Cake


  • Cake, prepared in two round pans
  • White icing
  • Candy to create facial features
  • Shredded coconut


Slice one cake in half and “glue” slices together with icing to create the bunny’s body. Ice the body completely.

Slice a small head, two narrow ears and a tail out of the second cake. You may need to cut off a layer of the head, ears and tail to make them thinner to attach to the body they do not stick out too much and look disproportionate. Attach the head, ears and tail to the body and ice completely. Use candy to create the bunny’s face and sprinkle with coconut to create bunny “fluff.”

Bunny Cake: Part One

I am 24-years-old and I still get an Easter basket.

I am 24-years-old and I still enjoy making and decorating Easter bunny cakes. 😀

Do you still get an Easter basket?

After a homecooked dinner of beef tenderloin, broccoli and sweet potato casserole, and a nice evening boat ride with the family, my mom, sister and I got busy in the kitchen creating our first of two Easter bunny cakes.

We debated on what cake flavor to make for a while, but eventually decided to make Bunny Number One a carrot cake bunny.

We poured the cake batter into two round cake pans to bake before waiting what seemed forever for them to cool so we could frost ’em.

We then cut into one cake so we had two ears and a bunny bow tie.

Naked Bunny

We frosted the cakes with cream cheese frosting (and practically made ourselves stick from all the finger-licks) and gave our little bunny eyes (with two Rolos + two chocolate ships), a nose (strawberry Starburst jelly beans) and whiskers (rainbow twists Twizzlers).

Yay! I have a face!

We debated making the bunny “fluffy” with shredded coconut, but decided to save that for bunny cake number two.

Poor Bunny Number One didn’t last too long and lost his bow tie and half of his ears rather quickly.

My Sister Slicing the Cake

I enjoyed a nice, big piece of Bunny Number One, as well as a couple small slivers before bed. 😉

My Slice

By the end of the night, Bunny Number One looked more like a cat!

Bunny ---> Kitty

He sure was tasty!

Bunny Cake


  • Cake, prepared in two round pans
  • White icing
  • Decorations for facial features and bow tie


Cut ears and bow tie out of one of the round cakes by slicing a two even semi-circles on either side of the cake. Place ears and bow tie above and below remaining round cake and ice the cakes completely.

Decorate as you see fit, adding eyes, a nose, whiskers, a smile and funky color to the bunny’s bow tie. Enjoy!
