Step 1 - Bake cake. Prepare the cake batter following recipe instructions. Bake and cool three cake layers. Level, fill and stack for a 6 in. high cake. Frost smooth using white buttercream.
Step 2 - Make bunny pattern. Using a FoodWriter edible marker, trace the bunny pattern on parchment paper. Cut out the bunny and lightly press into the side of the cake.
Step 3 - Tint icing
- Using Pink and Lemon Yellow icing colors, tint 1/4 cup frosting each pink and yellow
- Using Teal icing color, tint 1 cup frosting teal
- Tint 1/4 cup frosting purple by combining Violet and Pink icing colors to get purple color shown
Step 4 - Ice cake. Using an offset spatula, swipe pink, teal, yellow and purple frosting around the sides and on top of the cake, taking care to overlap the stencil edges.
Step 5 - Smooth frosting, letting colors blend slightly. Reserve the remaining teal frosting and remove the stencil from the cake.
Step 6 - Decorate cake. Prepare a decorating bag with tip 4B and the remaining teal frosting. Pipe pull-out stars around the top edge of cake.
Note - This decorating idea makes a 3 layer 6" high cake
