Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 . Grease (or lightly spray with cooking spray) bottoms only of two 8-inch or 9-inch round pans. Beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs in large bowl on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into pans.
  2. Bake 8-inch pans 25 to 30 minutes, 9-inch pans 22 to 27 minutes. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Reserve one layer for another use or to make a second bunny. Cut 1 layer in half as shown in diagram (see Note). Put halves together with frosting to form body. Place cake upright on cut edge on tray.
  3. Cut out a notch about one-third of the way up one end of body to form head (small end) as shown in diagram. Attach half of cutout piece for tail with toothpicks. Frost with remaining frosting, rounding body on sides. Sprinkle with 1 cup coconut. Cut ears from construction paper; press into top. Use jelly beans for eyes and nose.
  4. Shake 1 cup coconut and 3 drops food color in tightly covered jar until evenly tinted. Surround bunny with tinted coconut. Add additional jelly beans if desired. Store loosely covered.

Very cute cake that was fun and easy to make WITH my 3 year old. I let her help put the eyes and nose on and sprinkle chocolate eggs on the "grass". Tasted yummy and put a smile on everyone's face who saw it.

I love cut-up cakes. It's adds fun to a party. Easy to make. Kids love to help decorate. Kids of all ages will like this cake. Try different toppings and colored icings. I used Betty Crocker's Cream Cheese (white) and Strawberry Cream Cheese (pink). If you like bunnys, decorate in different holiday colors. Somebunny will love your bunny rabbit. Have fun!!!!
