Pink Petal Dust for ears & cheeks

Floral Wire (We used a 26 gauge floral wire but any gauge that can support the ears will work)


Small flower cutter

Bubble Tea Straws or Drinking Straws - Optional, but if you feel that the toppers may sink, place a straw beneath each one cut to the height of the cake.

Miscellaneous: Small paint brushes, confectioner's sugar (optional but good for lightening the pink petal dust if necessary), pedestal or cake base of choice, cardboard cake circle cut to the size of the cake, turntable (optional), disposable piping bags

  1. I've only just become a member and I really can't wait to make these for Easter this year!! They are so cute.

  2. Well they are stinkin' cute! So glad they aren't tail-less :-) Love the simple but beautiful flowers around the cake :-) Very fabulous as always! Love it!

  3. Hi Melissa, I have been planning to make your carrot cake for Easter, yum! Do you think I could use your cream cheese buttercream for the flowers and leaves? Do you think they would hold their shape? Such a sweet cake! Thanks for showing us it.

  4. Thank you! Here are my bunnies. I have made your carrot cake, delish, and filling with the cream cheese buttercream. I made your fluffy buttercream to cover the cake and make the flowers. I am going to do that tonight. Thanks for all your help, and your school. It is so tremendously helpful to have you and BeBe "right next door" :)
