It's baking for hospice time again! You might remember last month I baked some rugby themed cupcakes for the north shore hospice. This month the theme was spring and after looking around online for a bit I decided to bake a rabbit cake! I got the idea and recipe from this website. I was very happy with this because:
a. It looked pretty good (if I do say so myself hehe)
b. I got the off cuts! YES!!!
c. There was remaining icing to eat with the of cuts! YEEEEESSSS!!!!!
d. I knew the people at the north shore hospice would like eating this cake! (and if they don't, i liked eating this cake so all goods!)
Here are some photos!
|The batter! I made a pineapple and coconut cake!|
|Before it was baked!|
|And after! Can I just say this was super moist and delish!|
|I cut out the rabbit shape using a template.|
|The icing! It was interesting icing as it only used butter, flour coconut cream and normal sugar.|
|I iced the whole cake and started to put shredded coconut on top!|
|After I covered it with coconut it looked like a big lamington!|
|Then I used a peanut m and m for the eye, a normal m and m for the nose and liquorice for the whiskers!|
|I then iced the pink parts for the ears!|
I almost forgot to mention that my best friend came over and helped me too! Thank-you rachel! I really appreciated your help! She not only is great at decorating cakes but she kept me sane when I was decorating and perfecting the cake! : D
