Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • With younger kids, I recommend frosting your cake and then decorating. If you have coconut fans, take shredded coconut and dust all over your bunny prior to decorating. 
  • You can swap out your decorating gel for licorice if you choose. 
  • Involve the kids in decorating! They will love helping in the kitchen! 
  • Get creative and use carrot cake mix for a fun flavor that screams Easter! 

Storage

This cake will store at room temperature for about 4 days when covered. Over time it will dry out, but it will still have a delicious flavor.

Make-Ahead

If you are trying to prep for Easter ahead of time, you can prepare the cake ahead of time. Cook as directed and cool, and then wrap in plastic wrap and store in the fridge. You can make the cake up to 3 days ahead of time. 

How to Cut an Easter Bunny cake?

When making your Easter bunny cake you will want to start with two round cakes. Be sure they are fully cooled. You will use one round cake as the head and then you will cut the other one to form the ears and the bow tie.

To do this you will cut the top and the bottom in the shape of a bunny ear. Place these on the top of the head and then take the concave piece to form the bow tie.
