Fuzzy bunnies and chubby chicks are the adorable unofficial mascots of Easter. This is a holiday that's all about the cute. And Miami's Queen of Cute herself, Bunnie Cakes' Mariana Cortez, is paying tribute with charming ducky cakes, bunny cookies, and lots of other spring-themed edibles.
From cupcakes in egg cartons to cakes topped with bunny ears, a variety of custom Easter items are available in vegan and gluten-free vegan options. Easter baskets are even available if you'd rather not scour the stores for plastic grass and gelatin-free jelly beans.
With Easter Sunday around the corner, now is the time to order.
"I love to have the peace of mind during this holiday because my kids can eat whatever they are grabbing from the Easter hunt or the Easter basket," says Cortez, who started Bunnie Cakes to make allergen-free, delicious treats for her children.
"I love to see my kids' faces — they shine every time they ask me: 'I can eat this one, right?' I am able to say, 'Yes, go ahead, you can eat anything from the Easter basket.'"
"Last year I came up with solution of having the regular plastic eggs filled with Bunnie Cakes treats (vegan or vegan gluten-free) and mark them with a gold heart sticker. They know they can only get the ones marked; they loved it. I am offering this option this year too in our Easter menu," Cortez says.
Available for order are bunny cakes, ducky cakes, and Easter basket cakes in very vanilla, chocolate, double chocolate, red velvet, guava, passionfruit, and dulce no leche. They're $47 for a six-inch cake ($54 for gluten-free) and $69 for an eight-inch ($79 for gluten-free).
They're also offering Easter baskets filled with six mini-cupcakes in an egg carton, a bunny cookie, an egg surprise, and a bunny doll. They cost $45 for regular and $48 for gluten-free.
