How to Make Easter Bunny Cake


  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!!
