Chef’s Notes: This isn’t a recipe exactly, but it certainly is a fun way to bake for Easter. It’s simply two round cake layers arranged to create a bunny face, and then decorated with assorted candies. The decorating possibilities are endless, but I went with a whole chocolate theme.
1 box cake mix (any flavor; I used Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate)
1 tub of vanilla icing
Bake cake mix as decorated on box to make two 8-inch rounds. Cool completely.
Line a baking sheet with foil. Place one round on the baking sheet and ice.
Cut the other round to form two ears and a bowtie. (You can create a stencil and use that as a guide to cut the cake.)
Ice the ears and bowtie. Decorate the cake. I used: mini Reese’s peanut butter cups for eyes, a heart-shaped chocolate (left over from Valentine’s Day) for the nose, chocolate chips for whiskers, a mini Snickers cut in half for teeth, and M&Ms for polkadots on the tie.
