Bunny Cake for Easter

I think I've mentioned this about 15 or more times, but I volunteer to cook a lunch weekly at our local senior center.

Actually, I'm...

drum roll please...

the Kitchen Manager.

Impressed?   Nah, me neither.

But I do get to cook for a large group of people every week, make menus and try my best to serve not only healthy food, but good tasting food as well.

However, one of my secret passions is decorating cakes.

I'm not as good at it as my older sister or my SIL, but I like to play anyway.

Yesterday, I made a Bunny Cake for our cake raffle.

And I didn't get pictures as I went along, cause I decorated it at 6 am and I was just barely awake.    I mean, I did get the turkeys into the oven to start them cooking for our lunch, but that was easy.   Little thought required there. 

To start with...

I bought a package of Pink Marshmallow Peep Bunnies and some mini malted milk eggs. 

I then made a white cake, frosted it with white frosting (icing if you insist). 

I tinted about a half a cup of shredded coconut with two (2) drops of green food coloring, shook it around, to disperse the food coloring evenly.   Debated on adding more food coloring, but decided it looked just fine.    I then put it aside to rest for a little while.

It was all shook up, after all.

Around the perimeter of the cake, I placed the dozen Pink Marshmallow Peep Bunnies evenly.  Well, pretty evenly. 

I then made a nest of the green tinted coconut in the middle of the cake, and placed the mini-malted milk eggs on top of that.

Some of them rolled off to the side, but I decided it looked OK.

I thought that the Bunnies guarding the eggs was a fun, whimsical idea.

I guess our guests thought so too, I got a lot of comments on it.

So, if you're looking for a fun idea and and an easy dessert for Easter,  try this out.  

I had fun...

We served a full turkey dinner yesterday.

Gee no wonder I'm tired today.   But it was all good.
