Easter Bunny Cake (with directions)

Tonight I made an Easter Bunny cake. It didn't turn out quite as cute as the one I made for Jared's birthday a few years ago, so I'll post a pic of that one:

To make the cake you bake one cake mix (or homemade cake) in two round cake pans.

(Helpful hint: grease your cake pan, trace the cake pan bottom on waxed paper and cut it out, put the waxed paper on top of the greased pan bottom and pour the cake batter in the pan. Cook the cake as directed. After fully cool, use a butter knife to loosen the sides of the cake and gently loosen the cake from the bottom. The waxed paper will just peel right off of the cake bottom.)

After it is fully cool and the cake is out of the cake pans, put the two cakes on a large cookie sheet or make a tray by wrapping tinfoil around a piece of cardboard.

One cake will be the face, and the other will make the ears and bow tie. Cut one ear and then place the ear on the other side of the cake and cut an equal sized ear. Place them above the head and the bow tie below the face.

(Helpful hint: Place the whole thing in the freezer for about a 1/2 hour. This will freeze the crumbs to the cake so that when you frost the cut edges the crumbs won't come loose in the frosting.)

Frost the entire cake with white frosting. Then, using black frosting, outline the eyes (and put a jellybean for the eye color), use a jellybean for the nose and draw a line from the nose down to the mouth, make a smiling mouth (put a red jellybean for the tongue/lips). Outline the inside of the ears and fill with pink jellybeans. Outline the center of the bow tie and make polka dots with the jellybeans.
