Easter Bunny Cake

Happy Easter!!!

Here's a cute, fun treat that I received in one of my many recipe e-mail newsletters. I knew instantly I'd be making it to share with Johnny's family as our Easter dinner contribution.


Just bake a boxed carrot cake mix in 8 or 9 inch pans according to package instructions. Once cooled, cut the cake as shown to assemble the little bunny. The original instructions said to reserve the second cake for another use, but I thought it'd look cuter to make two bunny buddies!






Frost with a cream cheese, or other white frosting flavor of your choice. If you wanted the "fur" to be more authentic, you could sprinkle shredded coconut over the cake at this point, but I left it off. Make construction paper bunny ears and decorate the face with jelly beans!
