Welcome to Saturday Sweets! This is an Easter cake I made a few years ago for a family Easter Dinner.
This is a chocolate cake with buttercream icing and fondant accents.Now....I will give you 2 guesses as to what the brown and white thing is in the middle. I will give you some hints. It's not a panda (as someone in my family guessed...won't name any names) and it's not a turtle (as someone else in my family guessed). It has a little something to do with Easter. I guess maybe my fondant molding skills weren't exactly up to par because it wasn't as obvious at Easter as I had planned.
When I was looking for inspiration, I found a cake like this on CakeCentral by "becki1" and decided it was too cute not to make:)
I hope maybe this gives you a little inspiration for an Easter dessert. It was very easy to make. Everything you would need is found at Michaels Craft Store - or most other craft stores with a cake decorating section. The grass is made with a grass tip and you can find the fondant cutters for the flowers, carrot, bunny, and letters there as well. I buy my fondant at Global Sugar Arts (it's Satin Ice and it tastes like marshmallows - and it's pre-colored). But if you don't want to order it online, Michaels has fondant too, it just doesn't taste as good.
