Easter Bunny Cake Recipe!

I have been making for years!! My aunt JoAnn made it when I was a little girl, and I remember thinking about it every Easter until I was old enough to make my own!

To make this fun Easter Bunny cake, you will need the following ingredients:

2 pre-made round cakes (1 box mix)

white frosting
2 large bags sweetened flake coconut

food coloring
assorted candy for decorating

ziploc bags

melting chocolate or melted chocolate chips




Start by making your cakes. Prepare your pans for the batter.


I use 1 box of strawberry cake.


pour you batter evenly into 2 round cake pans and bake according to box instructions.


after cakes are cooled, take one cake and cut out ears and bow tie.


assemble bunny


Spread frosting over the whole cake


add the white coconut to the face and ears of the bunny, leaving room in the ears for the pink color.


to make your colored coconut, put some plain coconut in a ziploc bag. Add some food coloring and MIX MIX MIX! Mix until you have the color you like. I use neon gel food coloring.


fill the inside of the bunny’s ears with pink coconut


fill in the bow tie with colored coconut of your choice. I like bright orange.


I like to add some food coloring to a bit of frosting to make the bunny’s eyes


I just pipe some frosting for the eye color, then put a piece of melting chocolate on top

for the nose, i just take pink coconut and shape it into a heart

for the bunny’s mouth and whiskers, I melt chocolate and put it in a ziploc bag. I cut off the tip of the bag, and create the face.

I use candy to decorate the bow tie. The finished cake is the perfect treat for Easter!

Enjoy!!
