Invite each child to bring 6 hard-cooked eggs. You furnish materials to dye them, paint them, trim them with paper and lace, buttons and braids, ribbons and feathers (start saving scraps early!) and a box or basket to carry them home in. Serve the Bunny Cake with sandwiches and milk to the Easter Bunny’s helpers.
Bake any flavor or our layer cake mixes in 2 layer pans, 8 or 9×1 1/2 inches, as directed on package. Prepare our fluffy white frosting mix as directed on the package.
Cut one layer of cake in half to make 2 semicircles; put halves together with frosting to form body. (Use other layer as desired.) Place cake upright on cut edge of serving plate or tray. Cut a notch about 1/3 of the way up one edge of body to form head. Attach cut out piece for tail with wooden pick. Frost bunny; sprinkle generously with shredded coconut. Make ears of white paper; color inside pink. Use pink jelly beans or gumdrops for eyes and nose. Surround bunny with green tinted coconut for grass and jelly beans for eggs.
Cut slices of white bread with bunny cookie cutter. Spread with butter. Fill with sliced ham and lettuce trimmed to fit. Add a bit of carrot for bunny’s eyes, and put a slice of carrot in bunny’s hands.
