March 31, 2011 - Easter Bunny Cake
Click here for short instructions

A few years ago, I came up with one bunny cake. It was almost cartoonish in design. He's on our home page. Recently, I decided to make another, more cuddly, bunny cake using the Cake-Shaping Strips. To make this cake, you'll need a Cake-Shaping Strip (look here about how to make one), a sheet pan, prepared cake batter (from about 1 box of cake mix) and icing (about 2 16-oz. white-icing containers, one small tube of pink icing, and one small tube of black icing gel). Here's a picture of the finished product.

Bunny Cake

To make this cake, first make a Cake-Shaping Strip as described here using six sushi-mat segments. Line a cookie sheet with a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Shape the Cake-Shaping Strip into the outline of the bunny, and fold the foil around the edges of the strips. In places with tight corners (e.g., between the bunny's head and front leg), cut the foil (e.g., between the head and leg) so that you can wrap each cut segment around the adjacent piece of strip. It's likely that there was still not much foil in these areas to wrap around the strip. Therefore, take small pieces of foil (about 3-inches square), crumple it up into small wads and stick them in these areas. You can see these foil wads in the picture below.

Spray the inside of the Cake-Shaping Strip and the bottom foil layer with cooking spray. Make a cake batter. Batter from one box of cake mix was sufficient to fill the bunny pan that I made shown below. Pour the prepared batter into the new bunny "cake pan".

Bake the cake batter at 350 degrees until it "springs back" after being pressed lightly on the top of the cake.

Gently slide a knife between the cake and strips to be sure that the cake is well separated from the strips. If small amounts of cake batter leaked through the strips, cut these leak-throughs away from the strip. It is important to do this before separating the strip. Otherwise, the strip will be stuck. Then gently pull the strip away from the cake.

Now decorate your cake! It's really easy to make "fur." Just apply a thick layer of white icing on the cake, and then repeatedly place the flat side of a table knife on the icing's surface and pull up to form little peaks. Alternatively, you can apply a medium-thick layer of icing on the cake and sprinkle coconut over the iced cake. Finally, add a pink nose and ear marking and a black eye. This should make a fun addition to an Easter table!
