Peter Rabbit Cake | Rabbit Cake for kids birthday | Eggless Birthday Cake recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Learn how to make cute rabbit cake for birthday. Peter rabbit is fictional animal character created by Beatrix Potter. We visited the famous World of Beatrix Potter in UK where each of his fictional story and characters are depicted. Since then my daughter is big fan of Peter Rabbit cartoons. She told me to make rabbit cake for her birthday. As usual I was planning long before and thought we can make cake in shape of rabbit. This is my first attempt in making shaped cakes. Rabbit shape was easy to make but I was not so happy with finishing as there were lot of hindrances during decorating so whipped cream lose its shape a bit while piping.
I made healthy whole wheat cake using brown sugar and decorated with whipped cream frosting. I am not so expert in frosting so cake was not looking so professional. But taste was so good. It was so moist, soft and spongy. One of the best healthy cakes I have made. No one was able to tell it is made with wheat flour. You can gift your kids with healthy cake for their birthday. I made three chocolate sponge cake and cut them in shape of rabbit. You can use any colors or even fondant for decoration. Make sure to keep the whipped cream in fridge till you use them especially in very hot weather conditions.
