I have an April birthday and my mom made this cake for several birthday parties when I was little. Twenty five years later, I tried to recreate the cake for Easter and succeeded! It was almost to cute to cut into - I had to use a sharp knife and make it quick.


Approximate Time: 30 minutes



Make sure the two cake rounds are completely cool. Stack them on atop the other and cut them in half (this insures that your two "halves" are the same size). Round cake being cut to assemble bunny.

Place two halves cut sides down on the platter. This will form the bunny's body. Both halves of the round cake are placed together.


Frost the two between the two slices and their exterior.

Frost halves together to make the bunny's body.

Cut the remaining halves in half again. Place two of the quarters against the bunny's body to form the his legs.


Cut about 1 inch off the remaining quarters to form the bunny's head. Frost between these two pieces to stick them together.

Add second cake pieces around to make the rest of the bunny's body.

Use the remaining pieces to create the bunny's tail and feet if desired.

Frost the entire bunny and sprinkle with flaked coconut.

Cut two ears from white construction paper and make inner ears using pink construction paper (it works to double the paper when you do this so both ears are the same size) Glue the inner ear to the white pieces.

Paper ears for the Easter Bunny Cake

Tuck in between the bunnies head and body. Use a pink jelly bean to create the bunny's nose. Use blue or pink jelly beans to make the eyes.

Shake 1-2 cups coconut with green food coloring in the Ziploc bag. Sprinkle around the bunny as grass being careful not to get any on the bunny as the color will transfer. You may want to wear rubber gloves to protect your hands.

Decorate with extra jelly beans.

Note: I used white cake, but was tempted to use Red Velvet cake for the boys :)
