How To Make A Bunny Cake With 7-Minute Frosting

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I had my granddaughters help make our annual Bunny Cake for Easter……its all about traditions, right? Here is the bunny cake with 7-minute frosting sprinkled with white coconut for the bunny “fur”. Pink ears cut out of cardstock. We use a pink “Snowball” cupcake as the tail. Green colored coconut for the grass around the bunny just add some jelly beans.

Kids LOVE making this! And the sticky 7-minute frosting is the best! (Recipe below for the frosting)


I make two-nine inch round cakes with any flavor cake mix. I only use one of the cakes for the bunny cake. I freeze the other cake for another day. I use leftover cream cheese frosting or some of the 7-minute frosting to “glue” the cake together that I have cut in half. This makes the bunny body.

Here is Payton using the mixer to make our 7-minute sticky frosting.


Here we have assembled the bunny cake with the 7-minute frosting, coconut, cardstock pink ears, green colored coconut for the grass…..

Here is the recipe for my 7 Minute Frosting:
