Bunny Cake - Kiddy Cakes #1



I made this cake last year for my dear niece.
She has been changing her mind a few times, made me buy a few stuff.... and I'm glad she finally settled with a bunny cake, just a week before her day.

Here's how the decoration went on.. you can use any cake base you like. Since this is going to be a bunny cake, I made a carrot sponge (I forgot how I made it, just add some grated carrot to your favourite cake recipe). The frosting is Italian Meringue Buttercream, and you can use Swiss Meringue Buttercream if you like





1. Trim the cake.
2. Smother evenly with cream. Use toothpicks to mark the cake. Create borders with cotton strings and pat on desiccated coconut.
3. Rub some desiccated coconut with pink gel colour and fill up the space within the borders with the pink coconut. Remove the cotton strings.
4. Draw the final details with melted dark chocolate


The idea didn't come out of thin air, but I referred to a picture from the internet



My niece loved the cake a lot :)

  8. soh,
    I baked a sheet cake in the tray that came with my oven, cut into half and stack it with cream.
    This design will work with a rectangular cake of any size

  13. MH,
    It's not in the blog, that's why I put the link to a similar one, Swiss Meringue Buttercream. The ingredients are the same, the difference is only in the method.
