Cutie-pie “Cakes” for Easter

If you happen to be looking for a sweet treat to make for Easter Sunday, I have an easy peasy suggestion that might just hit the mark. It’s my cutie- pie “cake”aka Easter Bunny Cake. It’s a breeze to bake and takes literally zero skills to assemble. All you need to do is make two cake rounds and cut up one round as the necktie. and ears and the other is saved for the face of the Bunny. I first made this cake about a thousand years ago for my sister’s children and it was such a hit they asked for it for about the next 10 years. I cut them off at the age of 18 and said we have got to move on to more adult fare…. (te-he) (Note:cakes for grown ups below for inspo)!

The cake recipe below goes together in a snap due to the use of one wonderful cake mix. No judging please. We’ve added a few bonus ingredients and uust between you and I ..No one will know the difference. Enjoy!
