Easter Birthday Cake

Easter Bunny Birthday Cake
Most kids don’t like having their birthday land around another big holiday, but my daughter has always enjoyed having her birthday near Easter. She loves Easter and the Easter bunny, so I’m always looking for great Easter birthday party ideas. This year she turned seven and we through a full Easter themed party that was a huge hit.
Decorating for the party was easy, since I was just able to use some great Easter decorations. We had fun with the games as well, since we had a big Easter egg hunt that kept the kids busy for quite some time. I even had my husband dress up like the Easter bunny in a cute costume that the kids all loved.
This year I wanted to try making my daughter’s cake on my own, so I started looking for some Easter birthday party ideas for cakes. I saw several ideas that I liked, which led to me coming up with this cool cake. I liked the idea of combining pretty spring colors along with the Easter bunny to create a great cake.
I started with a basic round cake, which could be made in any flavor you like. Then I iced it in pale orange, adding a darker orange around the edges. I added pretty daisies and green leaves to add that spring feeling. I also made a nice bunny head with icing, which really turned out to be cute. With the addition of a couple cherries, I was really pleased with the end result and the kids all enjoyed the cake as well.
