    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.
