Mini Bunny Cakes

Instead of dying eggs….I dyed cake.

My heart was set on baking carrot cake until I stumbled upon this dessert on Pinterest. It was so much fun to make and absolutely love the Spring colors!!

I was able to make four (4) mini cakes — purchased small boxes from Michael’s and shared these adorable cakes with a couple of my friends kids. Of course, I kept a mini for myself. It was moist & sweet! Hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend : )

  9. Use a Wilton 2D or tip of choice with decorating bag and pipe a full circle onto each cake (as your layer)
  10. Make the bunny ears with marshmallows and sparkling sugar. Slice or cut two diagonal pieces of marshmallow. Lay the sticky part of marshmallow into the pink sugar.
  11. Stick the pink marshmallows into ear position and use a jellybean to make your nose.

Note: I swirled one circle along the edge of each layer and one small dollop in the middle. Decorate top layer.
