  • 1 package white cake mix
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • 1 ¾ cups flaked coconut, divided
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  • 2 drops green food coloring
  • Assorted jelly beans
  • 1 stick black licorice, cut lengthwise into 1/8 inch strips


Step #1– Mix and bake cake according to package directions, using two greased and floured 9 inch pans. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. For bunny’s head, place one of the cakes on a 20 inch x 14 inch covered board.

Step #2– Cut remaining cake into two ears and one bow tie.

Step #3– Place ears 4 inches apart on top of head. Place bow tie so it fits in curve of head.

Step #4– Frost top and side of head, ears and bow tie. Sprinkle 1 ¼ cups coconut over head and ears. Divide remaining coconut between two resealable plastic bags; add red food coloring to one bag and green to the other. Seal bags and shake to coat. Place pink coconut on ears to within ½ inch of the edges. Place green coconut around the cake.

Step #5– Use jelly beans for eyes, nose and to decorate bow tie. Cut the licorice into seven 2 inch pieces and seven ¾ inch pieces. Place six 2 inch pieces next to nose for whiskers. Bend the remaining 2 inch piece into a semicircle and place ¾ inch below nose for mouth. Connect nose to mouth with one ¾ inch piece. Place three ¾ inch pieces above each eye for eyelashes.

These are the decorations we used. Get creative!
