Saturday Sweets Easter Cake

Welcome to Saturday Sweets!  This is an Easter cake I made a few years ago for a family Easter Dinner.
Easter Cake
 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.
Easter Cake
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.

Happy Baking!

    1. Well you should try using some fondant. Maybe purchase just a small tub from Global Sugar Art and get some little flower cutters to start out with. It's really easy and adds a lot to a cake or cupcake. Thanks for the compliment.
