How to prepare: Bunny Cake

Bunny Cake Preparation - Phase 1

Bunny Cake Preparation - Phase 1

To prepare the Bunny Cake, start with the carrot sponge cake. Grate the carrots, arrange them in a bowl and set aside. In the meantime, whisk the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and salt in the mixer or with a whisk. Drizzle in the oil. Finally add the grated carrots, flour and baking powder until the mixture is smooth. Place the dough in three greased molds and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 160 degrees.

Then prepare the white chocolate cream: melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler and set aside. Hydrate the gelatin in cold water. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks and granulated sugar. In a saucepan, boil the cream and milk together. Once brought to a boil, add the mixture of egg yolks and sugar and bring everything to 85 degrees. Stir occasionally to avoid the formation of lumps.

Once the temperature has been reached, add the gelatine deprived of the water to the mixture. Mix and add the melted chocolate. Mix everything with an immersion blender and cover with the film in contact. Let it rest for 8-10 hours in the refrigerator. Then proceed with the filling: with the help of a spatula distribute the cream on each disc of sponge cake, starting from the bottom, and gradually stack them one on top of the other. Leave only the upper disc free from the cream.

Cover the cake, from the surface to the sides, with butter cream or marzipan to prevent the sugar paste covering, which you are going to overlap, from detaching from the sponge cake. Set aside. At this point on a pastry board dusted with icing sugar with a plastic rolling pin, less porous than wood, roll out the sugar paste with a width of about 40 cm. Cover the cake with the sheet of sugar paste and with a knife cut the excess, following the edge of the cake. Do not cut flush with the perimeter of the cake, so that you can bring back the excess sugar paste; the cake must be completely covered and never visible in any point.

Complete the Bunny Cake with the decorations in sugar paste and butter cream: make ears and eyes that will remind you of a rabbit’s face. Serve your dessert on the Easter table.
