Bunny Cakes have been part of our Family’s Easter Tradition since My Mother, Baked and Decorated her First Bunny Cake in the 1950s.
***AFTER MORE THAN 65 YEARS . . . THE BUNNY CAKE TRADITION LIVES ON!!***
Now the Bunny Cakes are Made by Myself, Sisters, Sister in Laws, Brothers, Brother in Laws, Nephews, Nieces, and their Kids, Cousins, and Some Extended Family, I Hope I did not Leave Anyone Out!! All Over the USA and Possibly Out of the Country at Times During the Month of April
It’s Easy . . . all you need is a Cake Mix, Frosting, a few Decorations and a Lot of Love. All the Bunnies are Unique and take on a Personality of their own. No Two are Exactly alike
Mix all Ingredients Together and Pour into Two 9 Inch Cake Pans and Bake
Fresh Out of the Oven and Into the Freezer they Go For 30 Minutes
Out of the Freezer and Cut the Cakes, So the Bunny can Start to be Born !!
Bunny is Almost Here, Now for a Few Final Touches so He Can See and Smell and Feel..
The Bunny is Born and Ready to Carry on…..
THE BUNNY CAKE TRADITION
Nice to see traditions are kept alive.
🙂 Awww Thanks Peter for the nice remark, and thanks for visiting
Totally agree with Peter’s comments! By the way Thomas, what is the purpose of freezing the cake for 30 minutes?
Interesting story, I like to bake, but not frost, when my family started to talk to me again, and include me into these fun traditions. I fought with my bunny cakes, from cutting to frosting, they would fall apart when cutting and they would crumble when frosting, was very frustrating making sad bunny cakes. So I went and talked with a pro foodie baker and they said the best way after they cool is to freeze them for 30 minutes and that makes it easer to make precise cuts and frosting goes on smooth. So this year I tried it, and you know it works very well, and making the bunny cake was quick and not stressful So Now I dont mind frosting 🙂
Thanks for the explanation, Thomas. It’s a useful knowledge. Thanks for sharing!
I’ve never made a bunny cake, although I do love to bake and cook and most of all eat. I believe your advise for refrigirating the cake is a great one. Whenever I frost cakes I am in such a hurry to get them into my belly that I rush things and one of them being the addition of frosting. Hence, I end up with crumbes as part of the frosting. I can see now that letting it cool all the way and refrigirate, will eliviate that problem. Very nice post Tom 😊
Yea that was my problem too Camellia, I wanted to do it fast and it would just be clumps of cake with frosting haha Thanks for the visit and the comment
What fun! I’m going to share this with some folks who might need it!
Its fun to do and really easy and does not cost alot
