Instructions

Step 1
Pick your favourite cake recipe (white cake is used here) and bake it in a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with sides) sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Once a toothpick comes out clean, remove and let cool. Flip a treat pop upside down to cut out circles. Each pop will need 2 circles of cake. Set circles aside.

Step 2
Begin decorating your bunny rabbits by gluing on the bunny eyes, nose, and tail. Then use a Sharpie Marker to draw the mouth and finish by gluing on the whiskers. You can also use thin strips of paper or wire for smaller whiskers.

Step 3
Roll out the Wilton White Fondant with a rolling pin. Use an oval cutter (or free-hand with a small knife) to cut out a set of bunny ears for each treat pop.

Step 4
Fill each treat pop with a layer of cake followed by a swirl of vanilla buttercream. Finish with a layer of buttercream.

Step 5
Set the bunny ears into the frosting and finish with mini marshmallow bites.

 

*Optional: Add cute ribbons and bows to decorate the treat pops!
