Bunny Cakelets

Welcome to my Happy Easter Tea.  Please join me for some chocolate bunny cakelets and some Toasted Coconut Tea!  You probably remember my bunny pillow that's made from an old sweater, on my sofa, that I hot glued buttons on in the shape of a bunny.

Isn't this teapot the cutest, with the bunny head on the lid?

A sweet friend gave me this adorable bunny teacup last year, and I love sipping tea from it in the Springtime.

I have a set of four of these melamine plates, each with a different bunny, that I bought from Tuesday Morning last year.

My late friend, Kathryn, gifted me this adorable planter one year, and I always think of her when I see it.

 Chocolate bunny cakelets are ready for serving!  Cream cheese frosting makes for a yummy tail, with some sprinkles for fun. I "painted" some tinted frosting on their ears.


My late beloved mom gave me this cute bunny. She was always thinking of me.


Riley, on the left, won all three of his wrestling matches that my daughter and I attended.  It was so fun and exciting being with her and cheering Riley on.  He pinned his opponent at his last match!  Connor, my Marine grandson, came home for a visit, before heading back to California to quarantine for 2 weeks, before being deployed.  We all went to watch Cissy in her tennis match, which she won! 

Yield: 6 adorable cakelets

Bunny Cakelets

You can use this recipe to make vanilla or chocolate bunnies. I used a cream cheese frosting for the tails.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/ 2 cup butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 1/ 2 cups flour
  • 1/ 2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Prep pan with shortening and flour or use baking spray.
  3. In a large bowl mix sugar and butter at low speed until well blended, then increase to medium speed and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add flour, milk, baking powder,  cocoa powder, vanilla, salt and eggs.
  5. Pour evenly into prepared pans.  Tap the pan on the counter to remove air bubbles.
  6. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the cake's center comes out clean.
  7. Cool cake in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Turn out on rack and cool completely.
