Easter Cone Cakes

Leilani Lowry

I cannot tell you how many comments I've gotten at trade shows over the past year about this bunny! Even during Halloween and Christmas, I'd put one of these out as a display and it always got "Oh that BUNNY!" "It's so cute, how'd you do that?" I've promised lots of people that I'd put up a blog post on how easy he is to make!  

And even easier is the grass and eggs cone cake.  You'll need a grass piping tip for it, so if you have one - it's super simple!  (Order a grass tip on Amazon, HERE)

I made a video (below) for step by step instructions on making these cone cakes.  I'm also including a video on how I made the pink sugar.  All you need is regular sugar and food coloring gel.

Enjoy!!

Ingredients:

Yippee Cone Cake Holders 
Cone Cakes already baked.  Video on how to make them and our recipe HERE.
Frosting - white for bunny, green tinted for grass
Marshmallows - regular size for ears, mini for tails on babies
Jelly Beans - whole for mama, cut in half for babies
Candy eggs
Sprinkles or M&Ms for eyes. For babies - I used regular "jimmies" 


Directions:

1. While cone cakes are baking, tint half of your icing with green food coloring.  Put half in a piping bag with the grass tip.

2. Once cooled, frost half of your cone cakes with green frosting. Then pipe on grass:

3. Add candy eggs.  Done!

4. Frost other half of cone cakes with white frosting:

5. Dip cone cakes into bowl filled with white sprinkles:

6. Cut marshmallows in half diagonally then dip sticky portion into pink sugar.  *Note: video below on how to make your own pink sugar:

7. Add ears and nose to make face.  For eyes, lots of my sprinkle packs come with round sprinkles in them, so that's what I used.  You can also use Mini M&Ms:

8. For babies, I made mini cone cakes too - HERE's the blog post and video on making mini cone cakes. I added tails - just cut mini marshmallows in half and stick on! They may need a tiny bit of icing to say. Aren't they so cute!?
