Bunny cake!

So, as you may have gathered, it's Easter this weekend. And to placate my kiddies, I made them a bunny cake. Sadly, I'm no artist, and anyone who attempts this cake will probably do a far better job than I will, but there you go.

And it's easy! I think Kraft Canada has pretty much the same cake on their site somewhere, but my mother made this same cake for me when I was very young. It's simple, and veryvery tasty.

First, make a 2-layer cake. Make it from scratch, make it from a box -- it doesn't matter. I used a white cake mix. Anyway, put one layer on a cookie sheet.

Cut two ear shapes out of the remaining layer. The remaining middle bit makes a nice bow tie.

Put the bow tie next to the layer that's on the cookie sheet. Put the ears along the other side. You may have to trim the ears a little to make them lie flat.

Next, slather it all over with either frosting or Cool Whip. I prefer to use the whipped topping because it's not as heavy as frosting, and then I don't feel so guilty when I go back for that second slice!

Finally, snip open some icing tubes, and draw a bunny face on it. Decorate it however you like. And stop laughing at my terrible drawing! :D

Now, go eat some bunny cake, and have a lovely Easter with the people you love the most. :)

    1. It is! I'm going to go have some now, haha!

  2. I've made this one many a time. Yours is really cute!!!

    My fave is to frost, cover with coconut, and use jelly beans for eyes and teeth and licorice for the mouth.

  3. Becky, I originally planned to use licorice for the whiskers, but totally forgot to buy it. *facepalm*
