How to Make a Bunny Cake
It’s the design that’s important for a bunny cake, use whatever cake and frosting recipes are most popular with your audience and then decide whether to make either a full body bunny cake, a bunny cake of just the face or a bunny cake made with all cupcakes for easy serving. All of these options for bunny cakes are described below.
How To Make A Bunny Cake – Full Body:(as shown above)
Bunny Cake Options:
For children, I’ve found that the Party rainbow chip cake mix by Betty Crocker with matching icing is by far the most popular. For adults, your best chocolate cake recipe with a whipped white frosting and coconut on the outside fits the bill.
For this full body bunny cake pictured, it’s coconut all the way. It began with a yellow cake mix made with 3 eggs, 1 cup coconut cream and 1/2 cup of butter flavor Crisco instead of the ingredients called for on the box. It’s then mixed and baked according to the directions on the box, but the batter will be thick and the cake denser than a usual cake mix cake.
For the icing, cream 2T butter with 5T cream cheese then mix in 5T coconut cream and about 4 cups of confectioners sugar (more or less to get the right spreading consistency).
But also with the frosting, coconut is not so popular with children – most seem to prefer the can of funfetti frosting. In lieu of coconut, you can pipe white frosting onto the cake in small bursts with a flower tip.

How To Make A Bunny Cake – From Cupcakes:
Starting with cupcakes to make a bunny cake is not only a fun way to make a bunny cake, but also makes clean up easier without plates and forks to wash.
OR, use mini marshmallows on top of the frosting all over the cake like Betty Crocker.
