This Easter Bunny cake is so easy to make and a great project to do with children. You can decorate it any way you like. It makes a great cake for the Easter holidays and tastes good, too! One box of cake mix makes two rabbits, so make one for a friend! This little rabbit cake has been around for years. My sister used to make these at least 40 years ago for Easter.
What you will need:
1 cake mix of your choice. I use just a white cake mix. (One mix makes two rabbits or one rabbit with one layer left over)
1 bag of coconut
1 can of whipped white frosting
Green Food Coloring
Cardboard to make the ears
Crayons (I used grey and pink on the ears)
Cook the cake mix in two round pans according to directions. Remove from pans and let cool.
Cut one layer in half and put the two pieces together on your dish you plan to use for this cake. Try to cut even so the two pieces will be the same size. Then, remove a pie shaped piece from the two half rounds. See picture.
Use half the piece you cut out of the cake to make the tail and fasten to the cake with a toothpick.
Set the cake up and the smaller part is the bunny head, the larger part the body. Frost the cake with whipped vanilla frosting. Sprinkle coconut all over the frosting.
Use two black jelly beans for eyes and a pink jelly bean for the nose. (Note: You could use toothpicks for whiskers or broom straws). I left them off.
Put some coconut in a bowl and color with green food coloring and sprinkle around the cake.
Draw ears on a white piece of cardboard or paper and color with crayons, outlining with the gray and fill in with the pink. Stick on bunny head.
Decorate with peeps, chocolate eggs, and jelly beans.
Enjoy! Happy Easter.
Note: It would be easy to make these from scratch, too. Just make your favorite cake. This post is just a guideline.
