Here is a hopping good idea for an Easter cake. Why not use a little molded baby in a gumpaste basket with carrots on the side of the cake to celebrate the occasion? I think adding the little baby into a basket with a pink gumpaste quilt makes a cute statement. Obviously the babies Easter outfit would not be complete without some bloomers with a cotton-tail and hat with rabbit ears. If you would like a pattern to make the bloomers see: How to Make a Diaper That Fits a Baby Mold’s Bottom.
When creating the carrots for the cake, weigh each piece of gumpaste/fondant mixture because this will help to ensure they are more uniform. I did not want them all to be the same shape, but I did want some consistency in their overall size.
