    Cakes: Note: 2 cakes are required for the rabbit.
    Beat eggs and sugar in a food processor until light and creamy. Add butter and golden syrup, mix until smooth. Add baking soda, flour, cocoa and milk. Mix until well combined. Pour into a well greased, paper lined 23cm round cake tin. Bake at 180°C for 50 to 60 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack and cool before decorating.

    Frosting
    Place chocolate and water into a bowl and microwave on med-low until melted. Cool, add egg yolks and beat well. Beat the butter and icing sugar until creamy, then add in the cold chocolate mixture.
    (Makes enough frosting to complete rabbit.)

    To assemble and decorate
    Use two 23cm cakes to create the rabbit cake. Cut shapes by following the diagram in the step by step instrcutions, and assemble into the bunny as shown. Lavishly ice with butter frosting. Food colouring can be used to tint the frosting different colours for the face and bow-tie.
    To decorate, use licorice straps cut into shoestrings for eyebrows, whiskers and mouth. For the bunny's tie, eyes and nose use different coloured pebbles. Finally, use pink food colouring to tint coconut and sprinkle it on the ears. Your beautiful, delicious birthday cake is ready for the candles.
