Hippity Hop Bunny Cake

  • mixed candies for garnish
  • 8 oz cool whip
  • 2 1/2 cup coconut
  • red edible color
  • 2 - 9" round cake layers

cooking time:

  1. you should begin with tinting 1/4 cup of the coconut pink using red food coloring.
  2. then cut 1 cake layer in such a way that a half circle shape on each side of the cake (for the ears) is made. do not forget to leave 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.
  3. you are supposed to leave one layer whole. this whole cake layer should be arranged in the center of the cake platter.
  4. you need to be careful while placing it so that the half circle shapes on the top point up for these will make the bunnies ears.
  5. next you should place the remaining piece at the bottom of the whole cake layer, as this would make the bow tie.
  6. frost with whipped topping
  7. for decorating the cake you can sprinkle pink coconut over center of bunny's ears and bowtie and white coconut over bunny's head and outer edge of ears and bowtie.
  8. candies could be used for eyes, nose, mouth and whiskers
