EASTER BUNNY CAKE
2 Baked 9-inch round cake layers, cooled
2 1/2 c Coconut, divided*
Red food coloring
Licorice for whiskers
*Tint 1/4 cup of the coconut with the red food coloring.
Cut 1 cake layer as a half circle shape on each side of the cake (for the ears) leaving a bow tie shape in the center of the cake. The bow tie shape should be about 1 1/2" wide at the widest part.
Leave the other layer whole. Arrange whole cake layer in center of cake platter, place half circle shapes on the top pointing up for the easter bunnies ears. Place the remaining piece at the bottom of the whole cake layer to make a bow tie. Frost the whole thing.
Sprinkle center of easter bunny's ears and bowtie with pink coconut. Sprinkle white coconut over bunny's head and outer edge of ears and bowtie. Decorate with candies for eyes, nose, mouth and whiskers.
Hint: For decorating you could use red string licorice, chocolate chips for the eyes, nose, and mouth and to outline the easter bunny's ears and bow tie.
