About this recipe: A tradition in our home every year. One two layer cake makes two bunnies that were always the centrepiece on the table for Easter dinner. For the icing, I used seven minute frosting from the site.

Serves: 8 

  • 1 prepared round sponge cake
  • 1 batch prepared icing
  • 1 bag jelly beans
  • black liquorice
  • 1 large packet desiccated coconut
  • 4 drops green food colouring

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Cut prepared round cake in half.
  2. Place frosting on one half of the cake.
  3. Put the two pieces together.
  4. Stand flat edge of cake on cake plate, and cut a notch out. This will form the neck of the bunny.

  6. Frost the entire cake.
  7. Cover the cake with desiccated coconut.
  8. Add jelly beans for eyes and nose.

  12. Mix coconut and green food colouring until the coconut is well covered.
  13. Place the green coconut on the plate around the bunny. Add jelly beans to the 'grass'.

. Have just had fun making this with my 10 year old daughter for a school cake sale. We took a short cut of buying a small sponge sandwich from the supermarket so just needed to make the icing and decoration. Happy Easter! - 04 Apr 2011
