This Easter Bunny Crafts cake recipe is my favorite Easter dish. I'm a guy and really not much into cooking but, I love eating, specially deserts. They are my all time favorites.

I asked my mother for this dish and presenting its cooking procedure over to her. This is how she makes it, but the photo is of Betty Crocker's version of it to give you an idea of how it might look (since I don't have a picture of her Easter bunny cake handy).

Make sure You've all these stuff ready (Ingredients):
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 bag sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 white or strawberry frosting (for a pink bunny)
  • 3 eggs

*You'll also need two metal bowls about 6 inches and 8 inches to bake your cakes in.

Stuff needed to decorate your bunny:

  • 1 red licorice lace, cut into 6 equal pieces
  • 2 semisweet chocolate morsels, 1 big chocolate chunk cookie (cut in half)
  • 1 sugar coated gum drop candy
  • 2 miniature marshmallows and 3 large marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate morsels, melted

Lets start the procedure of making the delicious Bunny cake:

  1. Initially just preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and prepare your bowls for baking by properly spreading the butter and flouring the metal bowls.

  2. Now Combine the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs all together in another clean bowl and beat until well blended (about 2 minutes).

  3. Pour 2 cups of the batter into the smallest metal bowl and the rest into the big one.

  4. Bake smaller cake for approx forty minutes and larger cake for about forty-five minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean when you poke it in the center.

  5. Cool cakes on cooling rack for about half an hour
    and then tip the cakes upside down and out onto the rack to cool the rest of the way.

  6. Cut larger cake in half to form the shape of two half moons. Frost the flat side of each piece (originally the top not the cut side) and then adhere the two frosted sides together placing the flat/cut sides down.

  7. Trim 1-inch from 1 end of the cake you just formed and 1 inch from the end of the smaller cake and discard the bits. Frost the trimmed ends and place the two cakes together on a serving tray.

  8. Spread the entire cake with the remaining frosting until it is covered. Sprinkle with the coconut (but save 1/2 cup for later). Gently press to make it stick if necessary.

  9. Use the melted chocolate to coat the cookie halves and then sprinkle them with the remaining coconut and set on waxed paper to dry. Later, add them to the bunny head for ears. You could also just use colored paper to make ears like in the photo if you prefer.

  10. Now for the rest of the bits, make cute little eyes by pressing 2 semisweet chocolate morsels onto bunny face. The jellied candy will be the nose. You can use a toothpick to secure it so it doesn't fall off the cake.

  11. Place the licorice pieces to form whiskers and the mini marshmallows to form cute little teeth. Roll together the large marshmallows and secure it to the back end with a toothpick to form a bunny tail.

Thanks, Prakhar, for the great Easter bunny crafts cake idea. I think it's an adorable Easter desserts cake, and I can see why you'd love it as one of your favorites.

I hope your mom makes it for you this year, too.
