The Cutest Korean Minimalist Cake You’ll Ever See: Simple Bunny Faces for Easter

It's Sweet to Share!

Korean Minimalist Cake is all about letting the message of the cake speak like a hallmark card.

It’s Hallmark meets Cake.

With a Korean Minimalist Cake you let go of the idea of tons of extra fancy details. No piping tips or techniques, no borders or rose patterns. Smooth and flat with an unmistakable message. 

Cake + Frosting + Decorations = Korean Minimalist Cake

Meet Korean Minimalist Cake 

10 years ago, I would have balked at that. That was my younger, energetic, obnoxious self. Today, sign me up. 

This cake is all about true minimalism. From the cake recipe to the glaze to the decorations. In other words – it’s easy!

Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe

For this recipe I used my ‘so easy a kid can make it chocolate cake’, and cut the recipe in half. I used ramekins for cake pans and made 4 individual cakes for each of my little munchkins. This recipe will make 4-6 cakes depending on how full you fill your ramekins. 

The frosting is just as easy: a simple powdered sugar glaze made with water. 

Bunny Cake Face

And the bunny faces are made with pre-made store bought frosting! 

They are so cute, I just cannot get enough of them!

The recipe included is almost as easy as a boxed cake mix, but first and foremost these cakes are all about spreading the message of Easter!
