Easter Bunny Cake

My husband and I joke that my family's traditions are centered around food, while his family's traditions are centered around games. My family likes to eat and talk around the table, while his family likes to play and talk around the table.
Since Easter (and hopefully Spring) is right around the corner, I wanted to share my family's traditional Easter Easter Bunny cake!

It's so simple to put together, but looks so cute! Let the kids help decorate it to make it a family activity.
Start by making a cake (I just always use a cake mix), any flavor. Bake the cake in two 8" pans, according to the directions on the cake mix box. Allow the cakes to cool completely before assembling the bunny.
One cake round will be the bunny's head. The other cake round will be the bunny's ears and bowtie. Cut the cake along the dotted lines as demonstrated:

Arrange the cake pieces on a cookie sheet. Frost the cake with desired frosting. I always use white frosting to get a white bunny. Immediately after frosting the cake, sprinkle coconut over the cake to give the bunny a fluffy effect.  I like to color some of the coconut pink for the insides of the bunny's ears. Give the bunny a face and whiskers with the candy of your choosing. Decorate the bowtie with candy. Admire your cute Easter bunny, and then dig in! ;)
