Angel Food Bunny Cake
- 2 c
- shredded coconut
- green liquid food coloring
- store bought angel food cake, unfrosted
- container (16 oz.) vanilla, butter cream or cream cheese frosting
- jelly beans in assorted colors
- 2 pkg
- (4-1/2 oz.) peeps bunnies in different colors
Add four drops food coloring and close bag or container.
Shake vigorously until coconut is evenly tinted light green. Add two more drops food coloring and repeat.
Pour coconut onto a paper towel lined plate to air dry.
Frost top and outside of the cake reserving 1/4 cup of the frosting.
Sprinkle tinted coconut over cake top and lightly press coconut into frosting on sides of cake.
Arrange jelly beans on top of cake pressing into frosting to secure.
With remaining frosting, frost the backside of enough Peeps bunnies to surround the outside of the cake. Press lightly to secure. Leave half an inch or so of space between each Peeps bunny.
This cake makes a delightful center piece. For an extra festive touch, spread decorative Easter grass (used in Easter baskets) in the center of the table surrounding the Peeps Bunny Cake. Additional jellybeans and other marshmallow Peeps can be placed in the grass.
