This is the Easter bunny cake I made for Easter this year. Actually, I made two of these cakes. I purchased the Wilton Bunny Cake mold for this cake. The cake I decided to make was a lemon coconut cake. I wanted something decadent but also light and refreshing like spring. I filled the lemon cake with a lemon curd filling and added some coconut flakes to it. Once the cake was stacked and filled I made my butter cream and iced the cake. Instead of adding the usual vanilla extract to the butter cream I added lemon and coconut extract to it. This worked out really well it was a nice touch to the cake and not over powering either. After the cake was iced I sprinkled coconut flakes over the cake. This gave the cake a fun fluffy bunny feel. I added the facial details with colored butter cream. Overall the cake was very moist and a big hit at Easter.

This is a little belated but here is what I made for our Easter celebrations. First, I made about 60 cake pops. The cake pops were made with carrot cake and cream cheese frosting. I shaped them into eggs and dipped them in white and pink chocolate. After the chocolate dried I added the decorative details onto them. I did this by painting corn syrup onto the cake pops then poured the sprinkles onto the corn syrup. It was very easy to do and I got great results from it. I also used a few different colored candy writers to get some additional added effects. The cake pops were a big hit and looked really cute. I individually wrapped them and put them in a little Easter basket for display.
I am starting to prepare for my Easter baking. I am really excited and I hope everything turns out great. I will be making two bunny cakes and two batches of cake pops for Easter Sunday. Once I finish everything I will be sure to post some pictures and let you know how everything goes.
I started my baking off with this easy recipe, Rice Krispie Easter Eggs.
For this recipe I used the basic Rice Krispie Treat recipe. After I made the cereal treats I molded them in plastic eggs. After, I shaped them in the eggs using my finger to push a little well in the middle of them. In the well I added two to three M&M candies.
These came out really yummy and were super easy to make. They are also a great thing to make with your kids. My daughter had a lot of fun with this even though she ate a million M&Ms as we were putting them in the eggs. 🙂
