Prepare the cake mix according to package directions and
bake it in the round cake pan. Most cake mixes make enough batter for two
round cake pans; therefore you can make two bunny cakes or make cupcakes
with the rest of the batter if you only want to make one bunny cake. After
the cake has cooled, remove it from the pan and cut the circle in half. With
white frosting, frost the bottom of one of the halves generously, then stand
the two halves up on their cut side on a plate or cake stand and push the
two bottoms together so the frosting is in the middle holding them together.
Now frost the whole thing. It should look like a half circle standing on a
plate; this is the body of the bunny.
For the eyes, cut two round circles out of white construction paper, then
two smaller circles out of black construction paper and glue each black
circle onto a white circle. Stick the eyes onto the frosting on the front of
the bunny body (one of the narrow ends).
For the ears, cut bunny ear shapes, in proportion with the body, out of
white construction paper. Cut smaller bunny ear shapes out of the pink
construction paper and glue them onto the white ones to make the center of
the ear. When glue has dried, insert the bottom of the ears into the
frosting about an inch above the eyes.
For further decoration, lay Easter grass around the cake, place jellybeans
on top of the grass and put coconut on the frosting of the cake as bunny
hair. This cake makes a nice centerpiece for your table. Use it with a vase
of in season flowers and there you have it.
