Easter Bunny Cake

60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
8 ingredients
1 servings
This was a favorite of mine when I was a kid but the instructions have long since been lost. I saw all kinds of "Bunny" cakes, but nothing even came close to this one... although I did manage to find a photo of it online. (It's hard to tell from the photo, but the feet are 2 layers high and the rest of the cake just one) So please excuse my crude drawings and directions, but you will have fun making it!! Great project to make with the kids, too, since you can get really creative with the decorations (other than just the ribbon bow) and can really dress it up. P.S. No law says it has to be a WHITE bunny, either... ;) ;)
