this recipe was soooo easy. I used foil lined cookie sheet to display it bunny. Then I added green food coloring to some extra coconut and placed it around the bunny. A few robin's eggs in the grass and it was a huge hit!!!

I've made this several times now and it's been a big hit every time. The best part is that it's sooo easy! For the inside of the ears I either use pink strawberry icing or use a little red food coloring with the white icing to make it pink, or sprinkle the ears with pink sugar crystals. It comes out adorable no matter what you use!!

i have been making this cake for easter for several years. i got the recipe when i was a child. i thought it was cute, and now my children enjoy it also. i let the kids from the neighborhood come over and i make each child a cake using 6 inch pans so they can decorate as they please & take it home. i recommend doing this if you have children or even if you are going to babysit. CLASSIC EASTER CAKE KIDS LOVE IT!

I've been making this cake for years. I use white cake mix and cream cheese frosting. I also color some of the coconut pink for the ears and green for grass (I put around the cake).

We make this every year for Easter, the kids love it! I outline the bowtie in choc. chips to define it a little more and then fill it in with the pink tinted coconut. I also spread green tinted coconut around the edges of the cake on the cookie sheet to give it alittle more color. Great, easy recipe though!!

I made this cake because my husband's mom makes it every year, we live far away, so I made it for him. I used Carrot Cake mix and Cream Cheese Icing instead and no coconut. I tinted the icing with dye for the ears and bowtie and used sweet tart jellybeans for decoration. It was adorable, I will make this every year from now on!!

One of the cutest cakes ever! I mixed it up a bit and used chocolate frosting and M&M's to decorate. Looked great and tasted great too!
