I was planning to put a bow tie on this cake but it was for a girl so we changed our plan. This was made from one large round cake and a slightly smaller round cake. The mommy and I carved the ears off the sides of the smaller cake as you would for a bunny with a bow tie. Then we took the scraps from the center of the cutting to make her hair bow.
I felt like the ears were too bold when they were going to be purple. The ears I ended up coloring by minimally blending the purple with the left over pink. The whiskers are a great blend because they are fully blended pink and dark purple instead of leaving them marbled as we did the ears. She said he daughter loved pink and purple – she LOVED the cake!
