The Progression of the Bunny Cake

2 Apr

Bunny Cake Easter 2008

So every Easter for ever since I can remember my family has created the “Bunny Cake.” No master of culinary arts is needed for this project. Two medium round yellow cakes, some cake frosting, shredded coconut and various Easter candies are about all you need. It typically helps to also have a child-like eye for fun craftsmanship. For the past three years, my mother has surrendered her bunny-baking skills to my sister and I. I must admit that my sister typically cuts the bunny ears and its tie from one of the two round cakes; meanwhile the coconut and candy decorating is a combined effort.

Bunny Cake Easter 2009 (for some reason it seems kind of "Alice in Wonderland" inspired).

A new tradition that I also started during these past few years of bunny-baking has been taking mobile pictures of the final masterpiece, which I usually send to a close friend or two. I thought it would be appropriate (and festive) to show my readers this cute rendition of baked goods.

Bunny Cake Easter 2010 (with red whiskers, what a change!)

This year’s rendition perhaps wasn’t our strongest representation of the tradition. Two major problems: a dearth of black licorice in the supermarket for the whiskers and a shortage of pink jelly beans for the outlines of the ears.  Oh well, it will taste the same despite any artistic mishaps.

    A very cute tradition. Was the bunny green in 2008 or is that just the lighting in the photo?

    It is just the strange lighting combined with the poor mobile picture-taking abilities of my old cell phone. We didn’t manage to get that creative unfortunately!
