When I posted my Easter menu, I didn't include a dessert. For at least the last 12 years, I've made a bunny shaped cake like the one shown above. This year, I was going to make something different, but my plans changed.
A couple of days ago, my husband stopped at the grocery on his way home from work. He noticed jelly beans were on sale and bought a bag. When he handed me the bag, he said he bought them for the bunny cake. This cake is such a family tradition, there's no way I could make a different dessert for Easter.
The cake is made with two 8-inch round cake pans. To save time, I use a cake mix and store bought frosting. Coconut is sprinkled on the frosting to mimic the bunny's fur. Licorice, tinted coconut, jelly beans or any other small colorful candy is used to decorate the cake. Click here to find the directions.
