So I offered to make a cake for a friend whose daughter was turning one. She wanted a bunny cake and I had never made a bunny, but was up to the challenge. The cake evolved as I was baking it into a bunny in a book. It was surprisingly simple.
I used 3 Dunkin Heinz cake mixes which will feed about 50 people.
The bunny was made from a ball shaped cake pan from Joann Etc. I cut a small part off the bottom to have it lay flat.
The head is 4 pre-made Rice Krispy treats rolled into a ball. The ears are one pre-made Rice Krispy treat each and molded into a floppy ear shape. You could use fondant if you wanted them to stick up straight.
The storybook is the result of two 9×13 sheet cakes.
