Easter is almost here and I have been busy this week preparing for the special day. My children are home from school this week and every year in addition to our normal family traditions, I like to try something different and new. Driscoll’s Berries approached me and thought I might be interested in giving their tasty Berrylicious Bunny Cake a try! This all natural, fresh berry filled cake was so darn cute that I knew my children would just love to spend an afternoon in the kitchen making it, so of course we put this on our to do list.
We had so much fun making and eating this cake! The light and buttery cake mixed with sweet, chopped strawberries and topped with a homemade buttercream frosting garnished with flaked coconut and raspberries, blueberries and blackberries was a very special treat. We all couldn’t wait to have a piece and the only fighting was over who would get which ear! Naturally, I didn’t let them eat a whole ear, but when it was time to cut the cake, each piece had a little of everything and looked beautiful. If you are looking a fun dessert for Easter this year give this wonderful cake a try!
Here’s a look at how we made our cake:
This batter smelled absolutely wonderful as we mixed in the fresh chopped strawberries!
We did not have a bunny pan, so we used (2) 9 inch cake pans.
After the cakes were baked and cooled we cut one into the “bunny ears” which completed the bunny shape. Don’t mind my slightly broken ear- it’s okay if this happens, because it will all be covered in delicious frosting!
We then frosted the cake and added a lot of flaked coconut for “fur”. If your family doesn’t like coconut, you can always skip this step.
I gave everyone a specific part to work on and my children got busy decorating!
Our youngest decided to just snack on some strawberries instead- notice the tiny hand in the bottom right corner 🙂
