Easter Foods - Bunny Cake

Difficulty: ***



Thanks to Betty Crocker for this great, fun cake! I've used it for years. Your kids will love it!

1 box cake mix, your choice
Tray or cardboard, covered with foil
1 container Whipped fluffy white frosting
1 package shredded coconut
Construction paper
Jelly beans or small gumdrops
Green food color

1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make and cool cake as directed on box for two 8-inch or 9-inch round pans. (Do not make a flat cake, you need layers).
2. Reserve 1 layer for another use or to make a second bunny (I make two bunnies). Cut 1 layer in half as shown in diagram below. Put halves together with frosting to form body. Place cake upright on cut edge on tray.
3. Cut out a notch about one-third of the way up one end of body to form head (small end) as shown in diagram below. Attach half of cutout piece from tail with toothpicks. Frost with remaining frosting, rounding body on sides. Sprinkle with 1 cup coconut. Cut ears from construction paper; press into notch on top. Use jelly beans for eyes and nose.
4. Shake 1 cup coconut and 3 drops food color in tightly covered jar until evenly tinted. Surround bunny with tinted coconut. Add additional jelly beans if desired. Store loosely covered.
