We baked our favorite chocolate cake in two 8-inch round pans. Our go-to recipe is Martha Stewart’s Salted Caramel 6-Layer Cake recipe. We made this cake without the caramel and in 2 layers. After the cakes cooled, we used Toba Garret’s decorators’ buttercream icing to frost the middle of the cakes.

To create the bunny cake:

-Cut the cake into two-thirds and one-thirds sections

-Turn the larger portion upside down to create the Bunny’s body

-Cut the smaller section in half and use one half turned upside down for the bunny’s face and further divide the remaining section in half to create the legs

To decorate the bunny cake:

-Frost the rest of the cake with icing and shaved coconut

-Ears: Milano Cookies

-Eyes and Whiskers: Black Jelly Beans

-Nose: Pink Jelly Bean

-Teeth: White Jelly Beans

-Cheeks, Paws and Tail: Marshmallows

-Additional cake decorations: Lindt Easter eggs and Jelly Beans
