Halfway Homemade Bunny Cakes for Easter
Springtime means Easter and that means time for bunny sweet treats and loads of adorable printables too. Sometimes cakes and cookies are great to make from scratch but sometimes there just isn’t enough time. That is when this becomes the cutest and best recipe for Easter to make with kids and for kids too.
Whether you decide to make these for Easter or any other bunny celebration, you will find them to be super yummy and oh so simple because Satin Ice fondant is really easy to work with. It is simple and fun that it is fabulous way to get the kids involved. These little cakes are a great little party treat or a fun snack after school too. I whipped these up in about ten minutes so gosh, that excuse of never enough time isn’t going to work on this one. I made these cakes with store bought round cakes (White Fudge DingDongs) to take that baking step out of the mix.
Materials, Supplies and Ingredients Needed
- White Fudge Ding Dongs (You could also use any round cookie or cupcake.)
- White Icing (This can be homemade or store bought.)
- Satin Ice Fondant
- Food Coloring if You Are Dyeing Your Fondant
- Knife to Spread Frosting
- Candy Eyes (I keep this on hand all the time because they turn any food into a fun treat!)
Directions to Make Mini Bunny Cakes
Start by making fondant ears and noses. Satin Ice makes fondant that is SO EASY to mold. It is like magical sweet edible clay.
You don’t have to have any experience to be successful! It it just like working with clay. If you make these with a group of kids, you will be shocked at how different their ears come out. Some will be tall and some will be short. Some will be wide and others super skinny. That is the best part about crafting and baking with kids. They have the best imaginations.
Next, frost the top of your cakes with white icing. Then, add the fondant decorations and candy eyes.
Not only are they totally adorable but they are really yummy too.
That is ALL there is to making bunny cakes.
Hop over to Amazon to get some Satin Ice fondants. You will be glad you did! The more you work with it and try things out, the better you get. To me, it is a lot easier than royal icing (which I also really love). If you mess up, you can roll it back in your hands and try again.
If you are serving them at an egg hunt or a class party (or need activities to do at home), be sure to download the printables to create some fun to do while eating the sweet treats!
Printable Easter Activities
I created a mini collection of activities for Easter that is free to download. You can use them individually or put them together into a little book. If you print the PDF 4 to a page, it will make the activities smaller to create adorable little books that fit in Easter baskets.

You might have seen this list from me before but I think it is worth sharing over and over. Sometimes the people in the back need to hear things a few times, right? There are so many great ways to use free printables. Here are some of my favorites.
- Print them and mail in an envelope with a stamp. Snail mail rocks.
- Batch some up to make an activity book. This is great for a road trip!
- Print and use at a place setting on the table to create a conversation starter.
- Add them to goody bags. By the way, goody bags are not just for birthday parties.
- Package them up with your favorite markers and crayons to give as a gift.
- Drop a few off at the local coffee shop with fun pencils to spread some happy.
- Cut them up to make cards, gift wrap and decorations.

These are my favorite tools and art supplies to use with free printables and why I love them too.
- Printer – This Laser Printer is inexpensive and works like a charm. It even works with Alexa. Bonus!
- Scissors – Lots of printables can be cut up to create decorations and cards and things like that.
- Markers and Crayons – All thing ooly work the best for me. I LOVE all of their markers, pencils and crayons.
