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!

    I’m making this cake for my sisters birthday now!
    Do you colour the fondant yourself or buy is coloured?
    Thankyou!

    Gawd. Whiskers or not, that might be the cutest bunny I have ever seen. I can make just about anything taste good, but for the life of me, I cannot decorate them to be as beautiful as yours. Maybe I need to take a class (or just follow this blog) because my cake decoration skills need serious help.
