I love doing different decorative things any chance I get – and that includes making baked goods that add something special to the occassion or event. In this time of the year  - Easter Bunny cake will add to the festive table and holiday decor. As you will see, it doesn’t have to be difficult and complicated – and to make the easiest way possible it is OK to use cake mix and ready made frosting. Here are simple directions  -try it  and you will have a cake kids will love and your family and friends will admire!


  • 1  package yellow cake mix
  • 3 3/4 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 (16 ounce) package vanilla frosting
  • 30 small jellybeans
  • 4 red licorice


  1. Heat oven and prepare two 9 inch round baking pans as directed on cake box.
  2. Prepare cake batter with as directed on package adding in 1/2 cup of coconut.
  3. Divide batter evenly between the prepared pans.
  4. Bake and cool cake as directed on package.
  5. When cooled, place one whole 9 inch cake layer on serving tray, forming the bunny’s head.
  6. Cut 2 convex shaped ears from each side of the second layer, place on each side of head to form ears.
  7. Use concave shaped piece for the bowtie, place about 1/2 inch below head.
  8. Frost entire bunny covering top and sides of bunny.
  9. Pat remaining 3- 1/4 cup coconut evenly over top and sides.
  10. Decorate the bunny face and bowtie with jellybeans and use the licorice to make whiskers.
