How to make the Bunny Cake


Cut an 8-inch cake layer in half. Sandwich the layers with frosting and then position the cake on its flat edge to frost the body.

  • Cut a notch into the cake behind the "head" to help define the body.

  • Decorate with shredded coconut for the fur.

  • Use toasted coconut for a brown bunny.

  • To make ears, flatten a large marshmallow and use scissors to cut it in half diagonally.

  • Cut another marshmallow in half and press the rounds into the frosting to create cheeks.

  • Miniature marshmallows make cute little bunny teeth. Jelly beans make great eyes and noses.
