Easter is one of the largest baking holidays of the year and this mini bunny cake recipe will not disappoint. It’s colorful, cute and super easy!
And as an added bonus, we have included some fun pictures depicting a variety of ways that you can use all-natural food dye to decorate your mini cakes. So, let’s get started!
What you’ll need: Makes 1 Mini Bunny Cake (2 to a box)
2 Tablespoons of unsalted, room temperature butter
4 Tablespoons of 2% milk
4 biodegradable baking cups (come with the kit)
One box of Color Kitchens natural food dyes
Handful of coconut
Pinch of sprinkles
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Grab a small mixing bowl, whisk, and spatula
Pour two pouches of the organic vanilla bean cake mix into the small mixing bowl
Add in 2 tablespoon of butter a 4 tablespoons of 2% milk
Whisk ingredients together
Once blended, you will bake the mini cakes for 11- 12 minutes
While the mini cakes are baking you will take 1 pouch of the organic vanilla bean frosting and squeeze it into a small bowl
Add in some of the pink natural food dye from color kitchen – blend well
Once the cakes are fully cooked, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool
Flip the mini cakes over so the bottom of each mini cake is now facing up
You will arrange one of the mini cakes on a small, decorative plate
Take a small circular cookie cutter and gently press the sides of the second mini cake to form two ears and a small bow tie (image below)
You will then gently place the two small pieces on the sides of the untouched mini cake to form bunny ears
The remaining center piece will then serve as a cute bow tie
Take the white vanilla bean frosting and evenly spread it over the bunny’s face and ears – leaving the bow tie untouched
Use the pink colored frosting to complete the bow tie and to make a small dot as a bunny nose
From there you can sprinkle on shredded coconut to give the effect of fur
You can also use fresh fruit or chocolate chips for the eyes
Finally, you will sprinkle the tie with some rainbow sprinkles and viola! You’ve made a cute mini bunny cake that no one will be able to resist!
