Easter Bunny Cake Recipe - How to Make a Easy Bunny Cake

I was thinking to make something for this easter. So when i searched for recipes i came across couple of recipes which made me try it immediately. It is this bunny cake and a easter bread. The cake is pretty simple to make and it looks so cute. Calls for basic ingredients as well..

Similar Recipes,
Hot Cross Buns
Easter Bread

I will be sharing the easter bread recipe next, so make sure you check them as well..I made this cake and when i finished taking all the pics i realized that i missed to add mustache, you can either use strip candies for that or thinly cut carrots for it.. 

The cake which i used is a single layer 8 inch vanilla cake. You can make any cake for this and use. Infact you can make carrot cake and make this bunny cake which makes much more sense..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE..
