Hope everyone had a nice Easter. My talented, precious daughter, who is also a great cook, made this bunny cake for our Easter dinner. My mother used to make this version every Easter for as long as I can remember; then I carried on the tradition many years. Now my daughter, Darla, carries on the tradition. The grandchildren and children, young and old, always look for "THE bunny cake"!
Here are some pics she sent me on how to make it. By the way, one cake mix will make two bunny cakes! You just use one round cake pan for each bunny. We usually make one with chocolate icing and one with white icing with coconut.
|What big ears you have!|
|This one round layer makes one bunny cake!|
|Stand up after frosting each half and push slightly together.|
|After you ice the middle and put together like this, you cut a small wedge of cake out of the front and place it on the back of the bunny for the tail.|
|Then you ice all over and into the empty spaces where the wedges are. (This usually takes two cans of icing per bunny)|
|Sprinkle all over with the coconut.|
