Ombre Bunny Mini Cakes

I am just fascinated with any dessert that is individual 
and beautiful and these are just magical.  
Individual desserts just seem more special, 
and with the layers of pink and white - these 
just made me smile while I was making them.

Fortunately, I had all the ingredients at home to 
from Cake by Courtney.  

She is local here in Utah, but she posts so 
many of her wonderful recipes online.  

I made my cakes in 4 - 6 inch pans lined with 
parchment paper, then cut the layers in half, 
and finally cut with a round biscuit cutter.  

A full recipe made 6 mini cakes.  

The only thing I changed with her recipe 
was using almond flavoring for my frosting 
rather than vanilla.  

With four layers, they are so tall and wanted to 
become Leaning Towers of Easter - so I 
used bamboo skewers to hold them upright. 

The ears were rolled out of fondant, and I used 
a bunny cookie cutter to cut the ears.  A little 
light corn syrup and a sprinkle of lustre dust 
finished the ears off. 

They were as yummy as they look.  I 
doubt any will last until Easter Sunday, 
but it is always fun to spread holidays out a little. 


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
