While lying around sick, I got it into my head that I wanted to make a chocolate bunny cake for Easter. It had been years since I made one of my bunny cakes, and I totally forgot that you don't bake the two side separately. You fill one side as full as you can, place the other half on top and let the cake bake up into it. The two cakes bake beautifully but they were not structurally sound when I stuck them together with frosting.
After I looked at my own blog post from the past I realized my mistake. Bunny cake stayed upright just long enough for me to snap a photo. He was still delicious.
