This Easter Bunny Butt Cake is so adorable. Easy to throw together with a white boxed cake mix, store-bought canned frosting and covered in coconut -yum.
EASTER BUNNY BUTT CAKE
This is such a fun cake to make, I love making holiday desserts. Did you try my Lucky Cupcakes With Irish Cream Frosting or Dark Chocolate Brownies With Strawberry Buttercream Frosting that I made at Valentine’s Day? Well, I’m now on to the easter fun. Last week I shared the Easter Bunny Cupcakes, my grandaughter absolutely loved them.
Making this cake was so fun. The cake itself was made in a pyrex glass mixing bowl. I never heard of baking a cake like that but it worked. You also need cupcakes for the feet, I just poured them in the cupcake tin before I put the rest of the cake mix into the glass bowl. I used cotton candy for a tale and marshmallows for toes or pads of the feet. Covered with coconut and some coconut and jelly bean trim around the cake.
Be on the lookout for more Easter recipes, I’m so excited that spring is near, I am so miserable in the winter. The sunshine today has me wanting to be out cleaning up the yard and getting ready to open up the pool. Just praying we don’t get a late in the season snowstorm.
