Here are the step by step instructions including photos for making an Easter Bunny Cake Recipe. You don’t need a special bunny-shaped pan AND you can use just about any cake batter. If I can do it, then ANYONE can do it! I even had my kids in the kitchen to help me out.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.

Next you are going to butter and flour the metal bowls really good!!  If not the cake will stick to the bowl! I know this because it happened to me. I was able to salvage the cake though.

In another bowl, combine the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs.

Beat for 2 minutes or until well blended.

You will then pour 2 cups of batter into the smaller prepared bowl and then pour the remaining batter into larger prepared bowl.

Bake smaller cake for about 40 minutes and larger cake for 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Cool cakes on cooling rack for 30 minutes.

Invert cakes onto cooling rack and cool completely.

After the cakes are cooled completely, you are going to cut the larger cake in half, which will form 2 half moons. As you can see above, my cake stuck to the bowl, but that’s ok! We were able to work with it!
