It seems like FOREVER since my last post! I have a lot to share with everyone!! Just because I haven’t posted recently, does not mean I haven’t been busy in the kitchen!! If you follow Food Marriage on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you may have gotten some fun previews!
To update you on what I’ve been up to, I’ll start with Easter where I made the CUTEST bunny-shaped cake! I know it’s too late for anyone to use the idea for this year, but you can save it to your recipe for next year!! OR if you have a craving for the most amazing carrot cake ever, you can make a regular round cake for any occasion!
This carrot cake recipe was passed down to me by my mom who had received it from a former co-worker of hers at the time my mom was pregnant with me. My mom held onto the paper copy of the recipe for years and just shared it with me. Now I get to preserve it forever here on Food Marriage!!
You will actually need to make two round carrot cakes to make this recipe. Once they are cooled, you will keep one of them as a round cake and the other you will cut into three pieces, which will for the bunny’s ears and bow tie. I drew a pattern on parchment paper and then cut it out and laid it on top of the cake while cutting.
Finally, you can whip up a batch of cream cheese icing, mix in some food coloring, and play around with the different types of tips to decorate your bunny. (I used a star shaped tip for the bunny’s “fur” and more of a regular tip for the rest of the cake). And don’t forget to give your bunny a name!! My bunny’s name was Bobby!!!!
