Quick Easter Cake Recipe: Simple & Fun Chocolate Easter Bunny Cake for Easter Day

My sister-in-law made the cutest Easter cake using chocolate Easter bunnies, shredded coconut and jellybeans. So simple but so cute! This easy Easter cake recipe is a creative way to use that Easter candy and have a little fun with the kids. 

The cake could be made ahead of time, or make it a family affair on Easter Day and decorate the baked cake after the big Easter egg hunt with all the goodies. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 to 30 minutes to bake cake
Total Time: 35 to 45 minutes


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Bake the cake according to package directions. Cool completely.
  2. Tint the coconut green by placing desired amount in a bowl or plastic zipper bag. Using a toothpick, add a little green food coloring. Knead or stir until color has evenly distributed. 
  3. Frost the cooled cake with the vanilla frosting.
  4. Cover the bottom of the cake with the tinted coconut to look like grass. 
  5. Place the chocolate covered Easter bunnies on the cake so they look like they're sitting on the grass.
  6. Add jellybeans.
