Whew, it has been a busy few weeks and I just realized that I didn't post Miss V's Easter Bunny Peep Cake. Word of advice, buy the Bunnies early! I bought a couple packs of yellow a week or so before Easter and the Saturday before Miss V decided to make this and wanted a couple other colors and well Target, Walmart, and Walgreens had ZERO bunny peeps. Only the chicks.
2 prepared cake layers (either square or round – 8×8 or 9×9)
1 jar of white frosting (I made butter cream)
1 cup shredded coconut
green food coloring
1 tsp water
3 packages of Peeps® (bunny shape)
And other Easter candy like chocolate eggs or bunnies I found a cute package of tiny Lindt Bunnies to use.
Lay one prepared cake layer on cake plate.
Frost a thin layer on top of cake and lay the other cake layer on top of it.
Next frost the whole cake on top and sides; set aside.
Place shredded coconut into a ziploc bag, add 5-6 drops of green food coloring and 1 tsp of water. Close bag and shake until all of the coconut is dyed green.
Sprinkle coconut on top of the cake.
Open Peeps® packages and assemble around the sides of the cake. Place jelly beans on top of the cake and decorate with chocolate eggs and bunnies.
