Cutie-pie “Cakes” for Easter

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashionable Food/Recipes

If you happen to be looking for a sweet treat to make for Easter Sunday, I have an easy peasy suggestion that might just hit the mark. It’s my cutie- pie “cake”aka Easter Bunny Cake. It’s a breeze to bake and takes literally zero skills to assemble. All you need to do is make two cake rounds and cut up one round as the necktie. and ears and the other is saved for the face of the Bunny. I first made this cake about a thousand years ago for my sister’s children and it was such a hit they asked for it for about the next 10 years. I cut them off at the age of 18 and said we have got to move on to more adult fare…. (te-he) (Note:cakes for grown ups below for inspo)!

The cake recipe below goes together in a snap due to the use of one wonderful cake mix. No judging please. We’ve added a few bonus ingredients and uust between you and I ..No one will know the difference. Enjoy!

Cake

  1. 1 pkg cake mix
  2. 1 pkg pudding
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 1/3 cup butter, melted
  5. 1 cup milk

Frosting

  1. 1 cup shortening
  2. 1 cup margarine or butter
  3. 2 tsp vanilla
  4. 8 cups powdered sugar
  5. 1-4 Tbsp water
  6. Food coloring (opt)
  7. Candy, coconut, sprinkles, etc. for decorating (opt)

Instructions

  1. Mix together all ingredients for cake. Split in half and place 1/2 in each of two greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  3. Remove cakes from pans. Leave one cake intact, and cut the other using the template below.
  4. Assemble bunny shape using template below. Set cake aside.
  5. In a mixing bowl, whip together shortening and butter. Add vanilla and mix well.
  6. Add powdered sugar in 1 cup amounts until frosting reaches desired consistency.
  7. Use frosting to decorate cake as desired.

If you need to put a little “pep in your step” might I suggest selecting a red suit to add to your wardrobe. Here’s a little fun fact:Studies show that red is a universally flattering color. Translation-red looks good on everyone! . Red is such a vibrant color and will absolutely brighten your outlook and your appearance.

Opt for a red suit that flatters your body and fits you to a T. Speaking of T-check out the images enclosed and note how a plain simple solid t shirt/or cami can be the perfect finishing touch paired with some pretty spectacular heels. Done and done.

If you’re looking for some affordable and stylish red suiting options here are two that would look so good on you. Options are under $100.00
