Bake Bunny Surprise
There are two ways to serve the cake: You can build a 3-D bunny cake following the directions below, or simply bake one half and serve it, flat side down, directly on a platter. Surround it with festive Easter candies for a pretty presentation.
|Add the batter
Grease and flour the pan, then divide the batter made from our Bundt cake mix between two halves.
|Bake, then cool down
Place pan on a wire cooling rack and let cool 10 to 15 minutes.
Invert pan onto rack and lift it off. Let cakes cool completely.
Using a serrated knife, trim the domed top of each cake to create a flat surface.

|Fill with frosting
Spread a 1/4-inch layer of buttercream frosting on the flat side of one cake.
|Bring it together
Top with the other cake half and let sit for 30 minutes so frosting can stiffen.
|Add a finishing touch
Dust with confectioners’ sugar or pipe buttercream frosting to decorate.
|Serve up a surprise
Stand bunny upright and transfer to a plate or cake stand to serve.
