Easter Bunny Bum Cake
*AS FEATURED IN GOOD HOUSEKEEPING MAGAZINE*
If you are looking for a fun, easy to make Easter cake, then give this Bunny Bum Cake a go!
I first made this for Ella's 6th birthday as it fell on Easter Saturday and it was a huge hit.
You will need:
Ingredients for a sponge cake: that's 225g butter, 225g caster sugar, four large eggs and 225g self-raising flour.
Butter icing - shop bought is fine and any flavour
A LOT of Mini eggs
White, ready to roll icing for the bum and pink or brown icing for the feet.
A marshmallow for the tail
Chocolate fingers to make a fence around the edge.
How do you do it?
Make any sponge cake, a basic round cake will work if you don't have a rectangular or square tin. I made a chocolate cake but you can make any flavour you like.
Cover in butter icing - Again, I used chocolate icing but use any you like. I also used shop bought!
Decorate with lots of mini eggs (I used a mixture of Cadbury's, M&M's and Smarties eggs) and using white icing make a bunny's bum and feet, using pink or brown icing for the pads on the feet so that it looks like the bunny is diving into the cake.
Use a blob of icing to attach a marshmallow as the tail.
Add chocolate fingers around the edge to make a fence. You could also use KitKat's.
