Bunny Carrot Cakes

Bunny Carrot Cakes are perfect little single serving cakes for Easter. The bunny shape is adorable and lends itself to creative decorating. I opted for minimal frosting to focus on the carrot cake and the bunny shape.

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

For this recipe, I used the peeler and utensil set provided by Deiss Kitchenware. I really liked the Deiss peeler as it easily peeled the outside layer of the carrot as well as has two options for the shredding of the carrot. It is very easy to use and clean. The utensil set is strong and doesn’t bend while stirring the stiff carrot cake batter and is also very easy to clean. I would recommend both products.

  2. So much to love about this! the cute bunny pan, the carrot cake, the awesome peeler from Deiss (seriously, one utensil instead of peeler plus the grater) did I mention the carrot cake already?
