I am tired.
Happy Monday morning to you and I hope you had a good Easter vacation. We had a family potluck and we along with a zesty-in law were in charge of dessert/cake. The decision was to prepare a bunny cake and let zesty juniors decorate the cake in true zesty style.
I think everything worked out as planned. We used what felt like 5 lbs of candy at the bulk barn, some pre-made whipped icing and a couple of white rainbow bit cakes. The cakes were baked according to directions and set to cool in the am. Once the cakes were cool and ready to roll, zesty in law made her way over to our house with the cakes in tow and the party was about to begin.
First words from zesty junior…. this is boring when are we going to decorate ( this was during the cake prep stage and cutting). Once the pieces were assembled the icing was next. The icing was pretty easy to work with… just stir it 20 times and you are good to spread it about.
So far so good – no injuries, not too many complaints and a cake that was shaping up like a bunny. I am IMPRESSED.
Icing is complete.
It’s candy time.
Thoughtful preparation went into the design and was even laid out on a blank canvas to ensure everyone was in agreement. I am telling you, this was intense. Color patterns, shapes and textures were all taken into consideration.
Have a look at the final shots of the cake.
Enjoy your Easter Monday and I will talk to you all on Wednesday.
