Yield: Serves 12 (serving size: 1 slice)

It’s not Easter without a themed cake! Rather than deal with a fussy animal-shaped pan, bake two round cake layers with an 8-inch diameter and let a little food styling and frosting do the work. You can use a box cake mix make a favorite recipe from scratch, depending on the level of effort you want to put in. This method can also be used for the Carrot Easter Cake and Easter Egg Cake. 


  • 2pre-baked (8-inch) round cake layers
  • 3 cups vanilla frosting
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate frosting
  • 1/4 cup pink frosting
  • 2candy eyeballs

How to Make It

Step 1

Assemble cake layers on a flat surface. Cut 2 opposite edges of 1 cake layer into “ears”. A “bow tie” shape will be remaining after the ears are cut out. Arrange ears above the whole cake layer, and place bow tie below whole cake layer.

Step 2

Spread face and ears with vanilla frosting. Spread bow tie with chocolate frosting. Fill a piping bag with remaining chocolate frosting and pipe whiskers, mouth, and eyes on bunny face. Fill a piping bag with pink frosting and pipe a small oval on the ears and a round nose on the face. Place candy eyeballs on face.
