Emily's Bunny Cake

My oldest daughter has been on her spring break this week, so to keep her busy (and myself sane) I planned several projects. One of which was her very first fondant covered cake. We were both very pleased with how it turned out. I think I have a future cake decorator on my hands!

She was very insistant on wanting to do a funfetti cake for some reason, lol, so i went with it and just figured we'd do a from scratch cake on the next go round.

She wanted to look like she was really baking so she splashed powdered sugar on herself.

It was so cute watching her do this because she was so intent on getting it right!

All finished with the crumb coat and into the fridge to set up before the fondant.

She was sooo proud of this bunny rabbit when she finished it.

Maddie had to get in on the action and made a "bunny"on a stick (a piece of spaghetti) and then proceeded to eat its head off.

It turned out to be a wonderful experience for all of us and I think i've gotten a new cake buddy out of the deal :)
