I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. I was in San Antonio to visit the family. We had a great weekend and church on Sunday was wonderful.

My Mom and I made a Bunny Cake on Saturday. My mom has been making this cake every Easter for as long as I can remember. It's so, so, easy!
~Bunny Cake Directions~
Use any flavor cake mix you like and bake in 2-8 or 9 inch pans as directed on the box.
After the cake has cooled, cut one cake into the following shapes. You can lightly trace the shapes onto the cake with the knife before cutting. This will prevent mistakes.
Use your cut shapes to form a bunny on a serving tray or platter.
Next ice the cake with vanilla or cream cheese icing. We made homemade butter cream icing but any basic icing recipe will work or store bought icing.
The fun part is decorating the bunny and being creative. We covered the bunny in coconut. Next we dyed a small amount of coconut for the ears and the bow. Our goal was to make the ears and bow pink but we added a little too much food coloring and we were out of coconut. The result was a hot pink (or a least that's what we're telling ourselves).
For the polka dots on the bow and the whiskers, we used rainbow colored Air Heads. We cut the polka dots and whiskers out with kitchen scissors. For the nose we used pink sprinkles and the eyes are chocolate candies we found in the pantry. This cake is so easy, much easier than the gingerbread house we made at Christmas.
