Floppy Ears Bunny Cake Zoom

Floppy Ears Bunny Cake


When we say ?quick like a bunny?, this is the bunny we mean! OK, you do have to let the fondant and gum paste ears dry for two days, but decorating the cake itself involves just spreading the icing and adding a few quick details. Best of all, this cake couldn?t look cuter on your Easter table.
Makes: Cake serves 12.

Additional Information

Step 1

Make ears 2 days in advance. Knead gum paste into fondant. Divide mixture in half. Use hands to flatten and shape into ears, approximately 5 in. long x 2 in. wide at widest end, about 3/8 in. thick. Use fingers to form center of ears, rounding edges; bend over top of one ear. Insert a lollipop stick into bottom of each ear, extending 4 in. at bottom to insert into cake. Let dry 2 days.

Step 2

Make cake and mini cupcake: Prepare batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool two 6 in. cake layers and one mini cupcake (use any remaining batter for additional mini cupcakes).

Prepare buttercream icing following recipe directions. Tint a small portion of icing black and set aside. Level, fill and stack cake for a 2-layer cake, 5 in. high.

Use spatula and white icing to ice cake smooth and mini cupcake fluffy. Attach cupcake to cake for tail.

Step 3

Paint ears. Mix cornflower blue and white-white icing colors with lemon extract. Use brush to paint inside ears with mixture. Let dry, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 4

Decorate cakes. Use tip 4, a cut disposable decorating bag and black icing to pipe dot eyes. Use tip 1, a cut disposable decorating bag and black icing to overpipe ?x? shapes on eyes for a cross-stitched look and pipe ?x? shapes for nose. Insert ears in cake top.
