If you don't know what to serve for dessert on Easter, it's not too late to make a bunny cake. You don't need a special pan, only two 8-inch round cake pans.
I learned how to make this cake in a high school home economics class. My home ec teacher taught us to prepare the cake mix according to the package directions, but that's not how I fix it anymore.
Now days, when I bake a white or yellow cake mix, I use a recipe given to me by a friend that decorates cakes. Instead of following the directions on the box, add water, Dream Whip, eggs and oil -- applesauce if you want to reduce the amount of fat -- to the cake mix. The combination of these ingredients makes a packaged cake mix taste homemade.
When the cakes are completely cool, put one cake on a wire rack in the freezer for 30 minutes. Remove from the freezer and put the cake on a cutting board. Cut curves in the sides of the cake for the ears. Use the leftover piece for the bow tie. Arrange the pieces on a cake board or cookie sheet, using the remaining cake for the bunny's face. Cover cake with the frosting. Sprinkle coconut on top of the frosting. Decorate with jelly beans or other candy.
