What You will need: Ingredients
For the Easter Bunny cake recipe:
- Your favorite recipe or box mix
- Your favorite frosting
Putting it Together: Instructions
After baking the cake, slice it in half and turn it over.
Now that the cake is turned over, add your vanilla or favorite frosting on one of the sides of the cake.
Make the two halves meet with the frosting in the middle of the two.
Using a serrated knife, cut off a triangle of the cake to give the shape of a bunny sitting.
Remove the triangle.
Cover the rest of the cake in frosting using a frosting knife.
Print the bunny ears, cut them, and place them on the cake!
Place your cake in a tray decorated with Easter items, and you’re all ready to impress your guests!
Additions and Substitutions
No green Easter grass for the serving tray? You can tint coconut green with a few drops of green food coloring. Measure out a cup of shredded coconut, dump it in a bowl, add 2 drops to start with and mix well. Add one drop more at a time until you like the shade of green. Repeat with another cup of coconut until there is enough “grass” to cover your serving tray.
Want to add whiskers, eyes, and nose to your bunnies? Black licorice strings can be cut and inserted for whiskers. Pink jelly beans can be added for eyes and black jelly beans can be added for a nose.
Instead of real eggs on the serving platter, you can sprinkle Easter candy on the platter.
