Want to serve an adorable and easy homemade dessert this Easter? Try this super simple Candy Bunny Cake. It starts with boxed cake mix and store-bought frosting. Then it's decorated with festive candy that can also be found at the supermarket. Get creative with the decorations. Black licorice would make great whiskers or use mini-marshmallows to line the face. Maybe add coconut flakes to the bowtie? It's an adorable cake kiddos can help you make. "Every-bunny" is going to want a slice.
