I have two spiral notebooks that hold recipes... magazine clippings and some handwritten that I have collected since 1974. My recipe collection has outgrown my two spiral notebooks, but I treasure these tattered soiled pages...
I have made a lamb cake at Easter using a mold, but I decided this year that a bunny cake would be nice. I remembered a clipping in my old recipe notebook. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see how it is made using a round cake pan. However, after the cake layer is cut and positioned according to the diagram, the sides of the bunny are straight. How, without using a ridiculous amount of icing, will the bunny ever become pleasingly plump? I stepped back to ponder my next step... and I saw a car shape. I enlisted Dick's help in positioning some Newman's Own Oreo Cookies for tires and cutting some strawberry fruit leather for windows... while I snipped out bunny ears as a reminder of how it all began... and came to be. I think there are some real possiblities for variations on this car theme... headlights, exterior visor over the front windshield, a split side window, doors, grill... Oh, yes.
