This Easter Bunny cake is super easy to make and is a real crowd pleaser.
Ingredients: One Box light colored Cake Mix 2-3 Tubs of White Frosting Shredded Coconut Jelly Beans Green food coloring Black, Blue, and Pink tubes of Gel Frosting
Directions: Bake your cake mix (night before party) as directed in 3 well greased round cake pans. In one of them, fill it a bit fuller than the others to create the mound for the bunny's nose. When cool remove from pans and place each cake on it's own plate in the fridge over night or 3 hours.
When very cold, cut ONE of the flat rounds in half and then cut the ends off to create ears. Arrange the ears and the other flat round on a cookie sheet, and frost with the white frosting. Then place the round with the mound on top of the flat round so that the mound if facing up, and frost.
Now with your Gel frosting tubes, decorate your bunny's face and ears as desired. Then pat coconut on the bunny to make him look fluffy, while avoiding the eyes and other drawn on face and decorations.
YOUR DONE! Now if you want to add a little extra cuteness, put a little green food coloring in a zip lock bag with some coconut (to make "grass") and then sprinkle it around on the cookie sheet and put a few jelly beans here and there!And you can do the same with red food coloring to make the inner ear pink! Have fun!
I remembered my mom making a homemade Easter bunny cake when I was little. I decided to try to create an Easter bunny cake too. I took two 9-inch round cake pans and used one as the face and the other I cut so that there were two ears on the sides of the pan and a bow tie in the middle. Then I used white icing to ice all of it.
The face is completely covered in coconut and the red of the ears is made of red sprinkles but it could also be done with a little bit of red/pink icing. The sides of the ears are also covered in coconut. The bow-tie is also colored with sprinkles but again it could be done with food coloring. The eyes and nose are made of two black jelly beans and a pink jelly bean. The whiskers are made of pull apart Twizzlers. The bow-tie can be decorated with whatever you have around that looks interesting.
This homemade chocolate bunny cake is simply two round cake layers arranged to create a bunny face, and then decorated with assorted candies. The decorating possibilities are endless, but I went with a whole chocolate theme.
1 chocolate box cake mix; 1 tub of vanilla icing; Candies
Bake cake mix as decorated on box to make two 8-inch rounds. Cool completely. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place one round on the baking sheet and ice. Cut the other round to form two ears and a bowtie. Ice the ears and bowtie (apply the icing thickly and spread gently to avoid catching and spreading crumbs).
Decorate the cake. I used: mini Reeses peanut butter cups for eyes, a heart-shaped chocolate for the nose, chocolate chips for whiskers, a mini Snickers cut in half for teeth, and M&Ms for polka-dots on the tie.
This Easter Bunny Cake was so easy to make and was a big hit at the dinner I took it to! Just bake 2 round cakes (I used white cake) and cut one of the cakes to make the ears and bow tie. To make the icing spread easier, I put it in the microwave oven for 30 seconds. I used Jr. Mints for the eyes and nose and icing for the ears, mouth whiskers and bow tie. I can't wait to make another one!
