Easter Bunny Cake Ideas

Everyone celebrates Easter differently and for different reasons.  Personally, a cake in the shape of a cross would be more appropriate but a bunny cake is much more fun to decorate.  There are plenty of ways to decorate a bunny cake ranging from super easy to really involved.

And if you want to take all the guess work out of the carving, you can try Wilton's:

Step-By-Step Bunny Pan

Cottontail Bunny Pan

Mini Bunny Pan

No matter which way you choose to go, make sure you have fun decorating.  Don't get bogged down by your To-Do list.  Enjoy those around you and remember the reason for the season.

We have added a new little angel to our family and it has been a whirlwind of adjustment!  The little one is almost 2 months now and is "sort of" sleeping through the night. Sounds good except that she begins stirring around 4:00 in the morning.  I get up to feed her but she's asleep again before you get to the crib.  We do this for about an hour before she's up for real at 6:30am.

Our 3 year old is thrilled to have baby here but has upped the hyper activity.  She has driven me completely nuts for the past month and a half.  She is FINALLY starting to calm down just in the past week.

I have tried to do a little baking but not with much success.  Too many interruptions.  I actually burned some Funfetti cupcakes so badly the paper cups turned black.  YIKES!

I did manage a cake for one of my hubby's co-workers.  It was her birthday and I made a Chocolate Chip Layer Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing from the Cake Mix Doctor....

It was YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I will be using this recipe again for a school fundraising auction in April.
