There have been many times I’ve gone to a party and thought the cake was amazing. I wanted to make one of these cakes for myself. That’s why I created this Unicorn Bunny Cake. Not only is she adorable, but she was a lot of fun to make!
I give you full directions to make the cake below. As you can see, it turns out a nice yellow. After the cake is done, you can actually begin the process of frosting the cake. I don’t know about you, but frosting is my favorite part.
You’re going to frost the top of the cake, so you can layer it. You can see the process of layering below and how we eventually get to the full cake version.
I licked my fingers way too many times while making this cake. The frosting is literally my favorite!
As you can see, you’re going to spend some time frosting the cake. Take your time and do a good job.
Oh, and always make sure the cake is cooled down before you start frosting. You will have a mess on your hand if you don’t wait.
I know sometimes it’s hard to be patient when you’re making something like this.
You can see what I used for decorating this Unicorn Bunny Cake. I used a Bunny Ears and Eyes kit and a Unicorn Horn Cake Topper, both of which can be found on Amazon.
I hope you enjoy making this cake as much as we did. The Bunny Unicorn Cake is sure to bring a smile to your face.
I can imagine that bringing this cake to any kid’s birthday party would be a hit. Let’s not forget that you can also make this cake for everyday use.
Who wouldn’t enjoy biting into this adorable cake? Just make sure you take a picture!
