Easter Bunny Cakes on a Stick
We’re excited for a FUN Easter DIY idea to get you ready for spring (after all, daylight savings is this weekend!) This one, friends, is EASY! We are not talking anything difficult, and it is a perfect and delicious DIY idea to do with the kids. We have all the details + products we used below but make this craft your own. Let your kids (or friends!) hang out and decorate their easter bunnies! Our bunnies are wearing bow ties and ribbons but GET CREATIVE – ties, dresses, tutus, eyelashes, glittered whiskers, the sky is the limit! So let’s “hop” into the details shall we?
- Pound cake (because it’s dense though any cake can be used)
- Straws : we suggest fun striped or polka dotted straws like these from Shop Sweet Lulu
- Marshmallows – giant roaster campfire
- Confetti Sprinkles – we used the Wilton Jumbo Dot Confetti
- Black Icing – Wilton tube icing works well
- White and pink icing – small amount
- Easter ribbon
HERE IS WHAT TO DO
1. Slice the pound cake into thick slices – one half inch thick or a little more
2. Cut out the shape of an egg using a cookie cutter or printed template
3. Push the egg shaped pound cake onto a straw
4. Cut one jumbo marshmallow across – one inch thick – next cut it in half – creating two ears
5. Make bows using colorful Easter ribbon
6. Using white icing make the eyes and noses; place a confetti sprinkle on top of the nose
7. Place a little of the black icing in a clear sandwich size bag and cut the tip. Using the black icing put a dot on the white icing for the eyes, next draw the noses
9. Using pink icing in a sandwich bag with the tip cut off, make the whiskers
10. Take some of the white icing and thicken by adding a little powdered sugar – use to secure the bunny ears to the top of the head – lay the completed bunnies flat for a while to let the icing set up.
That’s IT! Easy as 1, 2, 3! They’re so sweet that you might find your bunny without an ear after not too long! To display for a party or gathering, simple stick down in floral foam and cover with easter grass, moss, or paper crinkle. We used a green planter but you could also use a vase and wrap with an Easter ribbon.
