Easter Bunny Cake

I’ve been making this Easter Bunny Cake for several years now. My kids always think it is really fun & it is actually quit simple to make! This is just one of all recipes I’ve shared on this blog of our family tested recipes!

  • Make any cake you like (I usually use white, but you can make whatever you like – boxes are great time savers!) in 2 round 8” or 9” pans and bake according to your recipe directions.
  • After the cake has cooled you are going to cut the cake as shown herehow to make an easter bunny cake
  • Put the cake together on a cake board (or large cookie sheet covered in foil)
  • Frost the cake with your favorite frosting (store bought, my favorite buttercream recipe, or simple 3 cups powdered sugar, 1-2 Tab butter, 2-3 Tab milk) – note I make the bow a different color
  • Sprinkle the bunny with coconut for great texture (Here is a picture of one year when I didn’t use coconut. Instead I pipped the frosting to try to give it texture. This will give you an idea of how it would look with/without coconut)

add some decorations

  • Decorate with candy & additional pink frosting for the inside of the bunny’s ears
  • I mix green tint in leftover frosting and frost the cake board around the bunny. Then I mix green food coloring in with the leftover coconut and sprinkle the “grass” over the frosting. (The frosting holds the “grass” in place so you don’t have a grassy mess all over)

make it pop by putting green colored coconut grass around the cake
