Bunny birthday cake

This is the bunny birthday cake that I made for my daughters birthday party. I made the bunny out of gum paste and made the fur with soft royal icing. The bunny was suposed to look alot more fluffy in the fur, since it should look like a replica of the little Lionhead bunny that we gave her. But the royal icing was a little too wet when I applied it. Also I completely forgot the whiskers.

The birthday cake was a white cake with raspberry mousse and Italian Meringue Buttercream and covered with white chocolate fondant The cake was sweating a lot because it was very humid in the weather that day, so it was a little glossy when it was time to eat it. The carrot border was also made out of gum paste and turned out to be just perfect for the bunny cake.

Happy Caking!

    Hi Louise
    That is one cute bunny, could easily be adapted for Easter cake too, although now in Australia our Easter bunnies are being replaced with Bilbys! My friend Vanessa has just won a prestigious cake decorating competition sponsored by the NSW Cake Decorators Guild in Australia. Her cake was the best exhibit overall..a great achievement considering she’s only be decorating cakes for three years. You can see her cake on her blogspot.http://inspiredbycake.blogspot.com/ It’s worth a look.
