Easter Bunny Cake

Makes: 2 bunnies

Description: So simple to do and doesn't require a lot of know-how or time. Just one box of cake mix, frosting and some simple candies will create not one, but TWO Bunny Cakes!

1  box Betty Crocker SuperMoist yellow cake mix
2  containers (1 pound each) Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
1  food color (you can choose any coloring you want)
1  package multi colored Construction paper (inedible)
2  small marshmallows
1  small package jelly beans
2  5-inch strips rainbow-colored sour candy, separated into strips
4  rectangular-shaped white chewing gum pieces,

Instructions: Heat oven to 350F (325F for dark or nonstick pans). Make, bake and cool cake as directed on box for 2 (8- or 9-inch) round cake pans, using water, oil and eggs.
In medium bowl, tint 1 container frosting with neon purple food color. Using 1 cake round, cut in half to form 2 semicircles. Arrange halves on serving plate with cut side down and flat sides together with 1/4 cup frosting to form body.
Frost cake with frosting. Cut teardrop-shaped ears from construction paper; insert into cake. 2 small jelly bean for eyes. Use large jelly bean for nose and sour candy strips for whiskers. Place gum halves just below nose for teeth. Use large marshmallow for tail.
Repeat with remaining cake to make second bunny, using pink neon food color. Frost and decorate as above.
