twizzlers(pulled apart)
1 pkg

1 pkg
type of candy for eyes..i use skittles
1 box
vanilla instant pudding(optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make cake according to the instructions.I myself add vanilla pudding mix or vanilla yogurt to make cake creamier..
2
Cook according to directions..Use 2 round 9 inch cake pans..
3
Put on cooling rack until cool..
4
When cool,take one cake from pan and decorate with white icing saving 1/4 of icing for later..This will be the face of your Easter bunny..
5
The other cake,remove from pan and with sharp knife,carefully cut cake,about 1/4 from each side..Cut left side of cake like this ) and right side like this( and you have your ears..Left over piece is the bow tie..
6
Put bow tie under the decorated face,and the ears fix at angle on top of face..Decorate all with white icing..Get the 1/4 cup of saved icing you set aside..Add couple drops of red food coloring(more if needed) to make a pink color..Add to inside of ears..
7
You then get the gum drops out..I start with bow tie..Can be all one color or a variety..I myself do the variety..
8
Then get twizzlers,torn apart,and use for the whiskers..The nose, I use m&m's or skittles..Any hard,flat candy will work..Eyes,you can also use skittles,or sometimes I put lifesavers with skittles in middle of life saver..Lots of things work..
9
After all is decorated the way you want,then sprinkle coconut throughout..Your bunny is complete..
10
***If candy will not stick because of icing being dry,I keep bowl of warm water handy..Just use finger to rub some water on it,then it will stick..Enjoy!!
