My baby is 2 and she asked for a bunny cake for her birthday. I was able to refrain from reading the Bunny Cakes book during her party, though it was very hard to not run and pick it up. (If you’ve been paying attention I can’t resist a good natured double entendre or pun) But I had fun making her cake. Bob baked it for me, and I iced it. Its so much fun to use the few simple tips I bought, but the store bought icing was a little tricky. I wasn’t quite up to making all my own icing this time, so I used store bought. It just isn’t as nice to work with as the buttercream icing I made for Caleb’s guitar cake. I didn’t have any red wilton cake dye, so I used food coloring. It really did make a difference in making the icing runnier. So I’ll have to buy more of those icing colors (I only have blue, black and brown) next time.
