How to Decorate a Bunny Cake

Would you believe me if I told you that you can decorate a bunny cake to look totally adorable in under 5 minutes? Well, it’s true! I share a lot of recipes here, but today it’s not about the recipe, it’s all about the decorating.

Let’s start with the supplies. You’ll need a bunny cake pan, your favorite gluten free vanilla cake mix (or you can use my vanilla cupcake recipe) and ingredients, white and pink frosting, two piping bags (or ziploc bags), a decorating tip that makes flower or star shapes, jelly beans, and a piece of gluten free spaghetti.

Seems like a lot, but actually reading that and making the cake is the time consuming part. The decorating is super easy. Let me tell you how.

How to Decorate a Bunny Cake


  1. Let the cake completely cool.
  2. Take your vanilla frosting and separate it into two bowls.
  3. Add pureed freeze dried raspberry to one and mix it until you get the bright pink you’re looking for. Freeze dried strawberries work well too.
  4. Get two piping bags (or plastic bags), add flower or star decorating tips (I like #16 but any will work) and cut off the corners of the bags so that the tips stick out.
  5. Fill two piping bags with frosting (one white and one pink).
  6. Start by filling in the ears and mouth with the pink frosting.
  7. To frost, press the tip against the cake, squeeze and release straight up. You’ll see a flower or star shape and then you’ll repeat next to it until the whole area is filled.


  1. Next, take the white frosting and trace the edges first with the same technique, and then fill in the inside of the bunny’s head until it’s totally covered with frosting.
  2. Add two jelly beans for the eyes.
  3. Break a piece of gluten free spaghetti in half or thirds (depending on your bunny cake size) and criss cross them to make the whiskers.
  4. Add a small amount of frosting to a third jelly bean and stick it on top of the whiskers to make the nose.
  5. That’s it! Enjoy the smiles you’ll get when people see your adorable bunny cake!
