Bunny Butt Cake Tutorial

Bunny Butt Cake Tutorial

Looking for a super simple cake to make for Easter then this Bunny Butt cake is for you. Whilst browsing Pinterest I came across the idea and showed my boys. Surprise surprise they wanted me to make one. As it is my Father in Law's Birthday, I agreed. I have to say it is one of the easiest cakes I have made.

For the cake:

A small spring form cake tin 12cm diameter
4oz self raising flour
4oz caster sugar
4oz butter
2 eggs

To decorate:

Half a tub of Betty Crockers Frosting - I used vanilla
2 packets of white chocolate fingers
1 packet of mini eggs
A Tunnock's Tea Cake
A Marshmallow
Brown and Pink icing

I started by baking the cake using a simple sponge recipe.

Once cooled I sandwiched the cake together with the vanilla frosting. I then added frosting to the sides and stuck on the white chocolate fingers.

I tied a piece of paper rope around the fingers but ribbon would also look nice.

I then made the bunny butt. I used a Tunnock's Tea Cake with half a marshmallow on top for the rabbits tail. I then made feet shapes with the icing.

I piped the frosting onto the cake to ensure that it looked tidy at the edges.

I placed the butt in the middle of the cake and then added mini eggs around the side. I finished the cake off by adding sprinkles around the rabbit.

So there you go, super simple and perfect for Easter. Now I must really go and find some healthy recipes on Pinterest instead!

    I can't take credit for the name there are loads on the internet. The Tunnock's tea cake though was my idea :-D

    It is so easy. The hardest part is baking the sponge. Good Luck!

    This looks amazing! The little bunny bum is so funny. I know I would completely mess it up, however simple it is, so I'm avoiding showing this one to my kids!
