Easter Dessert: Bunny Cake- How to with Cooking with Caitlin

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.

First we got out a box of yellow cake mix and simply followed the instructions on the box for two 9 inch pans. After we made the batter we took out two circular pans. After the cake has baked and cooled, we wrapped a cooking sheet in Reynolds aluminum foil.

Then we cut one of the cakes edges 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.

 Then 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!

Next is decoration time. Be creative. I used coconut, jelly beans, sprinkles, left over valentines 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!

Would you like to try this Easter recipe? What dessert do you want to pass down to your kids?
