We have updated this post on how to make a Bunny Cake using a Cake Mix since 2013. Thank you so much for the awesome comments from the last post. I am so glad you guys loved the recipe.
I try to post a new recipe every other week but I can make an exception this week because I have a great Easter recipe that I want to share.
This recipe is a family recipe from my dad’s side of the family. My dad and I baked an amazing and cute Easter Bunny Cake. Looks like I had a busy baking weekend with the extra snow day.
How to Make A Bunny Cake Using a Box Cake Mix
WHAT TYPES OF PANS DO I NEED TO MAKE A BUNNY CAKE?
TWO: 9 Inch Round Pans
Check out our Berry Bunny Cake too!
First, we got out a box of yellow cake mix and simply followed the instructions on the box for two 9 inch pans.
After the cake has baked and cooled, we wrapped a cooking sheet in Reynolds aluminum foil.
HOW TO CUT CAKE TO MAKE A BUNNY CAKE
Cut one of the edges of the cake to turn them into ears for the bunny.
Then there should be a bow tie like shape in the middle. You could use it as a bow tie for the bunny like we did. Then arrange the bunny on the foiled-wrapped cooking sheet.
Frost the cake any way you want. My dad and I used chocolate frosting. We frosted everything the same color. Sort of looks like a solid chocolate bunny!
HOW TO DECORATE A BUNNY CAKE:
Next is decoration time. Be creative. I used coconut, jelly beans, sprinkles, leftover Valentine candy, white cookie frosting, and more. Since we did not have vanilla frosting, I used the white coconut for contrast on the bow tie.
There is only one step left to do which is to serve the cake. The cake was a big hit in my family and I bet it would be the same for you too. The hardest part was deciding where to cut first!
