Laura Neira's Citron Mossy Bunny Cake with Italian Buttercream
It was a match made in dessert heaven…
I met Laura through a mutual friend who had invited us both to a small gathering. She happened to bring one of her desserts, and I fell in love. Not only is she sweet and friendly, her desserts are delectable and gorgeous (oh, and did I mention delicious?). I just knew that I had to bake with her and, with spring in full swing, our Citron Mossy Bunny Cake with Italian Buttercream was born.
Mossy Bunny Tricks + Tips
First things first, baking with Laura was beyond fun. We had such a good time, and she loves desserts just as much as I do. Swapping tips and tricks is one of the many things I love about baking. Laura’s decorating tips were simple to follow, and the recipe for her citron cake was truly a revelation. She uses dyed coconut flakes for the mossy decoration and introduced me to a new product that looks just like grass—Galerie Edible Grass (get the green apple flavor for this one). I also found a beautiful selection of Easter candies and jelly beans from Williams Sonoma but you can choose whatever you’d like to decorate your mossy bunny.
