Easter Tradition


For the past 4 or 5 years I have been making this “Easter Bunny Cake”.

It is never perfect.

It is always different.

But, it is a tradition!!

It is very easy to make.

You can use any cake mix you want.

Or, of course, you can make your favorite from scratch cake.

The ingredients are:

1 pkg cake mix

1 16oz container white frosting

1 8 oz can crushed pineapple (drained)

1 tsp grated lemon zest

1 14oz pkg coconut

For the eyes: brown M&Ms or Hershey’s Kisses

Nose and Teeth: what ever you can come up with.

Make your cake mix according to package directions.  


Pour into 2 8″ round cake pans.

Bake according to package directions.

Let cakes cool.

While they are cooling, make you frosting. 

Put frosting in a bowl, fold in lemon zest and pineapple.

When cakes are cool.  

Cut one of the cakes to look like a basketball.  

The put it together to look like a bunny face with a bow tie.


Then frost……..

You can decorate this bunny any way you want.

Have fun!!

Kennedy, my 3-year-old granddaughter, is going to LOVE this guy!!

Happy Easter!!!! 

Remember the Reason for the Season!!
