How to Make BUNNY CAKE


  • 1Prepare cake mix according to its directions
  • 2Pour into two 8-inch round pans that have been sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
  • 3Bake for about 30 mins or until when toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • 4Cool completely and remove cake from pans.
  • 5Take the empty cake pan and turn it over on one of the cakes not quite half way and push down, that gives you one ear, then do the other side of the same cake to get the second ear and then whats left will be the bow tie.
  • 6place the ears above the other round cake and place the bowtie below it.
  • 7Frost the cake with the white icing, it does not have to be perfect cause the coconut will cover the flaws.
  • 8when done frosting, cover the whole cake with white coconut, make sure you keep back enough coconut to color with food coloring.
  • 9Take 3 small bowls and put about a handful of coconut in each bowl then color one bowl of coconut with pink food coloring, then the other two bowls color whatever colrs you like, i used blue and green for my other two bowls of coconut.
  • 10Sprinkle the pink coconut on the ears of the cake, then take your other two colors and decorate the bowtie
  • 11Take two black jelly beans to make the eyes and a pink jelly bean for the nose and make whiskers with the shoe string licorice
