Bunny Cake for Easter

I called this the Little Bunny Foo Foo cake this morning and it stuck.  The bunny and eggs are made of  chocolate cake and the grass base is white cake.  I envisioned making this cake larger with 3-4 bunnies, extra egges and a white picket fence around the outside, but two birthdays popped up this week and I needed two cakes.  Rather than a large rectangle sheet cake, I baked two square cakes.  This is the smaller square with one bunny.

I used the same bunny silicon molds that we used for the Blueberry Bunny Bread for our Easter Brunch:
I've been figuring out that the more flimsy the silicon mold, the easier it is to remove cake/brownies/chocolate from the molds.  
 The bunny molds are particularly flimsy & fantastic.
 After baking two square white cakes (one 9" and one 8"- this is the 8") for the base, I mixed buttercream frosting and colored it bright green:
 All ready to get started:
 Pipe the grass with Wilton tip #233
 Pipe the bunny tail with white frosting and then dunk it in white sugar pearls
 I inserted a skewer to attach the bunny to the top of the cake.
 Pipe frosting for the ears and nose and sprinkle with pink sanding sugar:
 You can mix a variety of frosting colors to decorate the eggs or pipe white frosting and then cover in different sprinkles (easier).  Do one section at a time (i.e. do a stripe of frosting and cover with sprinkles and then do the next stripe and cover with another color sprinkle).
Place a black sprinkle for the eye (I actually used two black bats- bottom one upside down to get an eyeball in the right proportion to the bunny).
 This cake will serve approximately 10.
