Remember waking up Easter morning and discovering that
during the night the Easter Bunny had left you a basket of goodies?

Sister had a new Easter dress (with white gloves)
and brother had a new jacket and clip-on bow-tie.
Notice the cool crew cut haircut and, of course,
the rabbit ears on the TV.

This cute bunny cake would be a treat for children today!
I think I'll make it for the grandkids! Here are the instructions

1  box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ carrot cake mix
    Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
    Tray or cardboard covered with wrapping paper and plastic food wrap or foil
1  container Betty Crocker™ Whipped fluffy white frosting
1  cup shredded coconut
    Pink construction paper
    Jelly beans or small gumdrops, as desired
1  cup shredded coconut
    Green food color


    1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make, bake and cool cake as directed on box for two 8-inch or 9-inch round pans.
    2 Reserve 1 layer for another use or to make a second bunny. Cut 1 layer in half as shown in diagram below. Put halves together with frosting to make body. Place cake upright on cut edge on tray.
    3 Cut out a notch about one-third of the way up one end of body to form head (small end) as shown in diagram (template can be found under the Tips below). Attach half of cutout piece from tail with toothpicks. Frost with remaining frosting, rounding body on sides. Sprinkle with 1 cup coconut. Cut ears from construction paper; wrap ends that will be inserted into cake with plastic food wrap. Press into notch on top. Use jelly beans for eyes and nose.
    4 Shake 1 cup coconut and 3 drops food color in tightly covered jar until evenly tinted. Surround bunny with tinted coconut. Add additional jelly beans if desired. Remove ears, plastic wrap and toothpicks before serving. Store loosely covered.

Happy Nostalgic Easter!
