Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

This carrot cake is the only recipe I have ever used. It is perfectly moist and surrounded by cream cheese frosting, proving it’s relevance beyond Easter.

Carrot Cake 1

Easter may have been yesterday but it’s never too late to share a carrot cake recipe. Especially when it’s my favorite carrot cake recipe and have already managed to go 3.5 years without sharing it with the masses. The original recipe called for just white granulated sugar but I use half white and half brown sugar while also reducing the oil a little bit and find that it is perfectly moist. From there you can mix in walnuts, pecans or raisins if you so desire. But don’t forget the cream cheese frosting! I even added halved baby carrots on top for decoration.

Rice Krispies Easter Bunny Cake

Looking for an Easter dessert? This cute Easter bunny cake is easily constructed with two round cakes. The best part is that it’s a no-bake cake made out of rice krispies treats.

Rice Krispies Easter Bunny Cake

Baking for the holidays is always a lot of fun. Beyond an excuse to use festive sprinkles, there are so many creative  ideas. Take this cake for example – two round cakes magically transform into this cute little guy. Unfortunately my photo-shoot for this Easter creation was not conducive to great pictures, but the execution is what’s important here. It’s an Easter bunny cake!

First things first, this is a no-bake cake. I made a cake out of rice krispies treats which were formed in cake pans. Using a simple template I cut up one of the cakes into the ears and bowtie to create the bunny. From there all that remained was to frost and decorate! You can use any assortment of candy, sprinkles, and frosting that you prefer. I made the eyes out of leftover cakeball fondant and white and black frosting, the cheeks are pink sprinkles, the nose is more cakeball fondant, the mouth is black frosting, and finally the bowtie consists of a chocolate chip cookie, cakeball fondant and sprinkles. Coconut would also be a great way to make a “fluffy” bunny but I made this cake for a non-coconut lover.
