I am always tickled when my friend, Hani, of Haniela’s, invites me to do a collaboration with her. 🙂  This time it’s a bunny collaboration, and as you can see we were on the same wavelength when we each made a cake, as opposed to cookies. It was meant to be! Bunny Cake Collaboration with Haniela’s, Lay The Table This cake offered me the opportunity to do something a little different with my new bunny cookie cutters. The ear cutter was made (and given to me) by Bobbi of Bobbi’s Cookies & Cutters, designed from my “bunny cookies and milk” cookies. They are actually made to go on the rim of a glass, but I thought they’d be perfect for this Funny Bunny cake. The bunny muzzle cookie was made by Tracy of Whisked Away Cutters, designed from my funny bunny cookie design.  Bobbi also made a “funny bunny” cutter.  It was so fun working with these two talented gals!

Whisked Away Cutters offers different sizes for the cutter; I used the 4-inch size for the cake.

I knew I wanted to make an ombre cake, since I never have. I even made it from scratch, which isn’t always the case, using this recipe from Wilton, though I did use pre-made buttercream. 

I was pretty happy with the pink ombre reveal.

Haniela’s cake is so cheery, bright, and perfect for spring/Easter!I love the contrast of the chocolate bunnies.  Hani has a wonderful video on making the cake, posted on her youtube channel.  If you haven’t subscribed to her channel, you should! I really enjoy her videos, and they are so instructive! 🙂

2. Continue with cakes until you end up with the lightest color on top.

3. Frost the entire cake with the icing.

4. Attach the bunny face cookie by putting a dollop of icing on the back and pressing it firmly, but gently onto the cookie. Hold in place for a moment. (If it doesn’t hold, insert a couple of toothpicks underneath the teeth, or somewhere else to support the cookie, just don’t forget to remove the toothpicks when you eat the cake.)
