For the Butter Cake:

- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

- 2 teaspoons baking powder

- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

- 4 large eggs

- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

- 1 cup whole milk

For the Buttercream Frosting:

- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

- 4 cups powdered sugar

- 2-3 tablespoons whole milk

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Orange and green food coloring gel

- Black fondant or black icing gel (for eyes and mouth)


1. Baking the Butter Cake:

- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.

- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

- In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, which should take about 2-3 minutes.

- Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

- Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Smooth the tops with a spatula.

- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

- Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

2. Making the Buttercream Frosting:

- In a large bowl, beat the softened butter until smooth and creamy.

- Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating well after each addition.

- Stir in the vanilla extract.

- Add 2-3 tablespoons of milk to achieve your desired frosting consistency.

- Tint a small portion of the frosting with orange food coloring gel and another small portion with green food coloring gel.

3. Assembling the Halloween Bunny Bear Cake:

- Once the cakes have cooled completely, level them if necessary to create flat surfaces.

- Place one cake layer on your serving plate or cake stand. Spread a layer of white frosting over the top.

- Carefully place the second cake layer on top and frost the entire cake, creating a smooth finish.

- Tint a small amount of frosting with orange food coloring to create the bunny's ears and feet. Use the green frosting for the bear's ears.

- Decorate your cake to resemble a cute bunny and bear duo. You can use black fondant or black icing gel to create the eyes and mouths. Don't forget to add some spooky details to fit the Halloween theme!
