I was asked to make a
for a church party.
I asked a friend what to make...
"Oh, an elegant lemon cake
or flower basket cake."
Hmmm, Those are not in my repertoire.
"Well, I was thinking,
maybe a bunny."
You know, Spring!"
It's not in my repertoire either,
but I had my heart set on trying
Amanda's Surprise Inside,
Here we go...
you start with 6" rounds.
I made my first cake ever from scratch.
And it turned out.
She has a great recipe.
The book classifies this cake as
It doesn't look that hard,
well, it kind of was.
I didn't take pics of the fun middle part
where I ruined 2 cakes
and was thinking,
"Oh, this is a bad idea,
what is my plan B?"
But I luckily had 5 rounds made.
Tip: Always bake extra cakes.
This is a leaf tip #74, looks like the star,
but is a little different.
Here's my bunny!
I went with white ears.
I have no idea if the inside worked.
The party had a Seasons theme.
These other ladies are amazing.
The Winter cake, makes me think of Frozen.
It had pretty sparkly sugar on it.
The Fall cake had edible cockleburs and
marbled leaves that are ever so thin,
with a glittery dust.
I seriously thought the Summer cake
had silk flowers on it.
But her gum paste flowers were
SO vibrant and delicate.
Yeah, then there's Bunny boo.
I've got a Surprise Inside.
Did it work?
I may try another
I have months to
prep for this one.
