An Easter family tradition growing up was that my mom baked a Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton Tail cake for Easter dessert. Each cake had it's own flavor and color with coconut to look like fur.
Since I bake/cook all of the time and no longer live near my family, I thought it would only make sense to create the bunny cakes for my in-laws.
So, the day before Easter I made each of the bunny cakes, which was simple. It appeared that I was ahead of schedule.
Naturally I started the individual icing for each of the cakes the night before Easter. Little did I know that the production time of the icing was about 20 minutes per bunny plus shaping and decorating...
By midnight my husband and little brother (who was spending the night to stay up with me while I decorated) fell completely asleep.
Around 4AM, the bunny cakes were complete with toasted coconut and perfect flopped ears and green colored coconut on the display dish to appear like grash.
Upon my arrival to house for Easter brunch, the only comment that bounced across the room was:
"WOW! Racing car cakes!!!!!!"
(Pictures make more sense!!!!)
