It’s beginning to look a lot like ... Easter! And by that we mean cute, fluffy bunnies are everywhere. This rabbit cake’s magic is all in the piping: You’ll use a multi-opening tip (aka grass tip) to get the fuzzy fur look. Just add fondant details, and this bunny's in business.
No fancy fondant skills or cupboard full of cake decorating tools required for this narwhal magic! That cute whale shape? Yup, it's your favorite snack cake hiding under there.
No need to stand at the counter slicing cake while your friends and family boogey the night away. Pull-apart cakes — made by frosting over the tops of cupcakes — make for a fun self-serve dessert situation.

As March rolls around and the little birdies begin to chirp, it can only mean one thing: Spring is on its way! Birds become an exceedingly popular theme, making the perfect motif for seasonal birthdays, as well as love birds for weddings and bridal showers or feathering momma bird's nest at a baby shower.

Pug dogs are not only adorably cute with their tightly curled-up tails and sweet "boggly" eyes, but when modeled out of fondant, they make rather fetching cupcake and cake toppers — perfect for birthday treats or thank you gifts. We especially love the idea of a pair of super cute personalized pug dogs perched atop a wedding cake to mimic the happy couple!
