Stack the three cake rounds and place the 6” cake board in the middle of the top cake round. Using a serrated knife, carve the cake so the bottom is smaller in diameter than the top cake round (to match the shape of a flower pot). SAVE YOUR CAKE SCRAPS IN A SEPARATE BOWL.
Color 3/4 of the buttercream with the edible food colors until they match a clay pot color.
Remove the cake layers and start filling them with buttercream as you restack the cake layers.
Ice your stacked cake and place it in the fridge to cool. Remove your cake from the fridge and finish coating the cake with your clay-colored buttercream.
Use a piping bag with a large easy cake coverage piping tip to create the rim of the clay pot.
Next, take the cake scraps and mix about 1-2 cups of the clay-colored buttercream in with the scraps to form cake clay or cake pop mix. Form a ball about the size of a tennis ball for the bunny butt and another small ball, about the size of a large marble, for the tail. (Alternatively, you can simply pipe a buttercream ball to form the bunny bum and tail instead of using cake clay.)
Blend chocolate cookies and pulse until you have a substance that looks like dirt. Sprinkle the "dirt" on top of the cake clay pot until you are satisfied with the coverage.
Take 3/4 of the remaining white buttercream and color it any color you want for the bunny butt and legs.
Place the large cake ball in the center of the cake and use the grass tip to pipe bunny fur.
Use cake scraps to make bunny legs that run from the large cake ball base to the rim of the cake clay pot. Use the grass tip to pipe bunny fur on them.
Place the smaller cake ball on top of the bunny butt and pipe white buttercream to form the tail fur.
Using scissors, cut the bunny feet out of the edible image paper and place them on the top rim of the clay pot, attaching them to the piped legs.
Finish off with sprinkled cookie crumbs for more messy fun! Enjoy!
