Easter Bunny Cake




Find it On Pinterest

Cook's Note: I thought this cake would be difficult, but it really was pretty easy! My family will love this for Easter Sunday and I predict this to be a big hit! This isn't the prettiest cake in the world, but I put a lot of love into it and the kids will love it and think its fun! 

What You Will Need: 

For the Cake: 
(2) 9 Inch Round Cake Pans
1 Box White Cake Mix (Plus ingredients called for on the box) 

For Decorations: 
1/2 Bag of Sweetened Flaked Coconut
Jelly Beans

Directions: 

Divide the cake batter evenly among the 2 cake pans and bake the cake according to box directions. Once cooled, cut 1 of the cake rounds to make ears and bowtie (there is a cool diagram for this here).  Arrange cake pieces on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
Ice the entire cake carefully with a thin layer of icing, until smooth, then, sprinkle coconut flakes on entire cake.  Lightly press down on the coconut flakes so that they stick to the icing.
- Decorate with candy.

For the Icing: 
8 Tbs (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
4-5 cups confectioner's sugar
 1/3 cup Flavored Coffee Creamer of your choice (I used International Delight Cinnabon Coffee Creamer – OMG!)

Icing Instructions:
 In an electric stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter until fluffy. Slowly add powdered sugar until well combined. Add coffee creamer Add more powdered sugar for a thicker frosting and more creamer for a looser frosting.
