Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Easter when we were young, we would make one of these cakes. Every Easter when we were young, we would make one of these cakes. Then, when I was in high school, I was in the Junior production of the play, "Harvey". I made this cake, but instead of putting the dots on the bow tie, I wrote the name, "Harvey". It was a big hit at the cast party, and a memory I will always hold dear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, this is still around? Wow, this is still around? I've been making this since my niece and nephew were little, about 35 years. I use M&Ms for the tie & eyes, frosting for the other features. You can color the coconut pink for the ears by putting a couple drops of food coloring in a container with the coconut and shaking it. Sometimes I make side sheet cake for the "Easter eggs" with green colored coconut for grass, spreading speckled malt candy eggs around for the "hunting ground." Or use the peanut M&Ms. Kids love it, as do the adults. Use other molds and you can make hills, and add marshmallow chicks & bunnies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake is very easy and watching the video make it easier. This cake is very easy and watching the video make it easier. I enjoyed making it and played around with different candies. I did not use cool whip for the frosting but bought whipped frosting (needed 2) instead. I do not like using cool whip because it doesn't hold up and needs to be stored in the refrig. If you want the eyes to look better try frosting peanut butter easter eggs and use a malt ball egg for the pupil and pull a part licorice for eye lashes. (very cute) Oh, the next time I make this receipe I'm going to use chocolate cake instead. The white cake gave it a plain taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was our yearly Easter cake for many yrs. This was our yearly Easter cake for many yrs. My mom and I always loved making it. The only changes we made were using family cake and frosting recipes. We also split it into layers and put lemon filling between layers. Whenever we had company, they couldn't believe how great it looked and tasted! They always wanted information, about how we cut it into the bunny shape. We gave the information to many friends and family members. It's one of the greatest recipes we ever found, and we were always ready to make one for Easter. Since she's passed away, I'm still happy to make it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it was nice . it was nice . I tried a first batch of a cake first b4 i easter of course just to try it out, and it was wonderful. Except i jazzed it up a bit and used Funfetti cake mix with a layer of strawberry frosting, then a thin layer of Strawberry cool whip. I used 2 mini Marshmellows for bunny teeh and a gumdrop as a cute little bunny nose. Just Insert a toothpick in the gum drop as well as the marshmellows , and then make sure to get some Sciccors and snip a little of the ends of the tooth pick gently insert it in the bunnys face and make sure to remove when serving.

My mom and I made this cake years ago, for my brother's April birthday, and everyone was awed by how "good" we were at cake decorating! LOL We used white frosting instead of Cool Whip, omitted the coconut, and used colored icing in a tube to paint on the whiskers and around the edges of the bow. I believe we also used pink icing in a tube to draw an outline of the inner part of the ears. So once you get the basics of this recipe down, have FUN with the decorating!! :) Now, to make this again using the strawberry Cool Whip-- yummm...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My aunt always made this cake as I was growing up. My aunt always made this cake as I was growing up. I never ate it (like most children I didn't like coconut) but I always admired it. I decided this year instead of the usual 2-layer carrot cake, I would make a carrot Bunny Cake. I made my homemade carrot cake in two 9 inch pans. Then I cut and assembled following the directions and iced with my homemade cream cheese frosting. For the appearance of fur, I piped the frosting on with a small star tip. Then I decorated with M&M's and licorice. It is absolutely adorable.

I made this last night using a light, lavender-vanilla cake recipe I made when I lived in France.....it's been two years since I moved, but this cake brought back so many memories....I used a wine-infused cream to make the ears for my husband and I, and a strong lavender-butter one for the rest of the cake. Decorated it with a chocolate beret and sugar-spun scarf. Adorable.....but by the end, the face of the cake looked like a posh Frenchie. But that's why I loved this recipe, you can do anything with it.
