Chicks & Bunny Cakes for Easter or just because they are so cute!


Cuteness in cakes & perfect for Easter or anytime you are looking for a cute theme for a party!
2 Box Cakes I used Devils Food & a Yellow Cake mix that called for Butter.
3 Cups Coconut
Yellow Food Dye
Green Food Dye
Candy Eggs I used Jelly Bean Eggs & Malted Milk Ball Eggs
Yellow Marshmallow Peeps
Pink Rabbit Marshmallow Peeps
2 Tubs of bought Frosting one Deep Chocolate & one Original White, I bought 2 tubs of each but only needed one of each!
Mix Cake mix according to package. Spoon batter into a deep mini bundt pan that has 6 wells & that you sprayed with baking spray. Mine is a baked donut pan. Bake according to package & be careful to not over bake! Let cool in pan about 5 minutes before you dump out baked cakes. Repeat with the second cake mix. Any leftover batter just bake in the bundt pans or make cupcakes! I made 6 Devils Food & 6 Yellow mini bundts & then did cupcakes. As the cakes cool divide coconut into 2 bowls. add green dye to one & yellow dye to the other about 6 drops of each. Stir well until coconut is the color you wish. Now frost the yellow cakes with the white frosting 1/3 of the way down the sides & across the domed top. You want the flat side to be the bottom. Now dip the frosted top into the yellow coconut. Add frosting to the bottom of one yellow Peep & pop it on the top so it looks like a hen on a nest. Place several jelly bean eggs around the Peep to look like eggs.
For the chocolate cakes, frost across the domed top & 1/3 down the sides of the cake. Dip the frosted top & sides into the green coconut. Pop a marshmallow rabbit Peep in the center & place malted milk eggs around the bunny! You will get 12 BIG individual cakes 6 Yellow Cake Hens Nest & 6 Green bunny popping out of his Rabbit Hole Chocolate Cakes! + a few cupcakes of each flavor!
