Ingredients

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 containers chocolate cake icing
  • 4 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
  • 8 ounces rolled fondant
  • purple, yellow, green, and black (or grey) icing colors
  • 1 cup coconut
  • corn starch for dusting the fondant

Directions

  1. Bake cake mix as per recipe in your temp-tations® fluted tube pan. Allow to cool completely and turn out onto your serving platter.
  2. Coat the cake with chocolate icing. Fill hole almost full to provide support for the bunny. 
  3. Sprinkle the chocolate with cookie crumbs onto the cake, pressing the crumbs into the icing so they stick. 
  4. Place the coconut into a plastic bag. Add a few drops of green coloring. Seal well and shake to coat. Add more color and repeat steps until desired green color is achieved. 
  5. Take a small piece of the white fondant, about the size of a clementine. Add a few drops of purple coloring and knead to disperse the color evenly. Add more coloring and repeat kneading until desired color is achieved. Lightly dust table and hands with cornstarch if fondant becomes sticky. Set aside in an air tight sandwich bag.
  6. Take a small piece of the white fondant, about the size of a silver dollar. Add a few drops of yellow coloring and knead to disperse the color evenly. Add more coloring and repeat kneading until desired color is achieved. Lightly dust table and hands with cornstarch if fondant becomes sticky. Set aside in an air tight sandwich bag. 
  7. Take a small piece of the white fondant, about the size of a silver dollar. Add a few drops of black or grey coloring and knead to disperse the color evenly. Add more coloring and repeat kneading until desired color is achieved. Lightly dust table and hands with cornstarch if fondant becomes sticky. Set aside in an air tight sandwich bag. 
  8. For the bunny, take a piece of white fondant the size of a small apple and roll into a smooth ball. Place in the center of the hole. 3/4 of the bunny should be exposed, so if your hole in the center of the cake is not filled enough, remove the bunny and add a little more icing and top with crumbs. 
  9. For the tail, take a small pea size piece of white fondant and roll into a smooth ball. Place in center of the bunny. A very small drop of water may be needed to adhere the tail to the bunny. If so, use a damp paper towel or brush. 
  10. For the feet, take two piece of white fondant and roll into 2" long by 3/4" wide pieces, about 1/2" thick. Lay out on table in front of you. Roll out the grey fondant thin. Cut two oval pieces to fit in the center of the feet and roll out very small piece of the toes. Adhere the pieces to the foot with a little water like you did with the tail. Place the feet onto the bottom half of the bunny, using a little water to help them stick. 
  11. For the flowers, roll out the purple fondant thinly. Using a flower cutter, cut a few flowers. Take a small piece of the yellow fondant and roll into a ball. using a little water, attach to the center of the flower, pressing to slightly flatten out. 
  12. Place a little of the green dyed coconut on the cake and top with the flowers.
