The first time I did the “Some Bunny is One” birthday theme was for my niece here. Then almost exactly a year later, I made more Bunny 1st Birthday Cakes. And with Easter coming up quick, I knew I had to share these (even though they’re very similar to the others).
I have to tell ya – I absolutely adored these cakes!! I somehow wish I could talk my daughter into a bunny cake for her birthday.
She’ll be 14… do you think I could convince her?? She actually does have real bunnies for pets and her birthday is in April (that’s near Easter) so I think we could. 😉
Okay – let’s first talk about the cake details!
Bunny 1st Birthday Cakes
I used a Wilton #402 to pipe the ruffles on the bottom (starting from the bottom and going up for each line) and I used this cream cheese buttercream recipe. I used Americolor Soft Pink to get the very delicate pink color.
Here’s the topper! You can find some cool number cutters on Etsy here. After it dried, I painted it with Aztec gold luster dust mixed with lemon extract. Then I “glued” it to a lollipop stick with melted chocolate to stand it up!
The tiny roses on the top tier were made out of modeling chocolate. I used a similar technique to the ribbon roses tutorial here.
This is easily one of my most favorite cakes ever. And yes, I say that all the time 🙂
In addition to the big cake, there was the precious smash cake…
Buttercream Bunny Cake
After the disaster the first time I did this design (read about it here), I was just happy to keep this cake off the floor! Ha! It’s also covered in cream cheese buttercream and I used a #22 tip to pipe the little bunny. The eye was a black sugar pearl and the nose was a tiny piece of modeling chocolate.
The rosettes around the bottom were also piped with a #22 tip and then a leaf tip for the leaves (doh!). 😉 You can see how I cover my boards with paper and wrap in ribbon in a tutorial here.
And that’s all I’ve got for ya! If you loved these Bunny 1st Birthday Cakes, be sure to check out the other posts I’ve linked up below! And as always, if you have a question, leave me a comment!
