Easter Bunny Cake
Let’s Eat CAKE!
Perfect for Easter:
Make this adorable Bunny Cake for Easter dessert.
What you will need:
1 layer of an 8 or 9 inch cake
Green Food Coloring
Assorted Jelly Beans
1 sheet of plain white paper
Pink Colored Marker
Here are step-by-step directions for this Easy-to-make Easter Bunny Cake:
Bake a two layer cake using your favorite recipe. We like Chocolate but it could be a white or yellow cake if preferred. You will use only one layer, so wrap the other layer a freeze for a quick dessert another time.
Using a single layer of a baked cake slice in half diagonally.
Stand the two halves upright on a platter, cut sides down.
About 2 inches up from one end, make a 2 inch wedge cut.
Place this ‘wedge’ piece at the opposite side for the tail.
Slather frosting between the layers, including the tail and head pieces; then frost generously all over, giving a nice thick coating. We like a gooey boiled frosting such as Betty Crocker’s Fluffy Frosting but any butter cream, marshmallow, or egg white frosting will work.
Place shredded or finely flaked coconut in a medium sized mixing bowl. Using a fork, mix the coconut with a few drops of green food coloring.
Sprinkle, shake and pat plain white shredded coconut all over cake. Add the green ‘grass’ around the edges of the cake.
Add dark jelly beans for eyes and a pink jelly bean for a nose.
Scatter additional jelly beans around in the grass
Cut ‘ears’ from plain white paper and color in the centers with a marker. Poke a toothpick gently through the bottom edges of each of the ears
Insert toothpick into the ‘wedge’ cut behind the head
HAPPY HOPPY EASTER!
