Frosting & Decoration
Allow cake to cool completely, remove from pan
Fold whipped topping and cream cheese frosting until incorporated. Spread onto the sides of cake with spatula, use piping bag with large head to pipe poofies onto the bunny to make the appearance of fur.
Add blue food coloring to a small amount of the frosting, pipe on whiskers with narrow pipe tools
Use M&M's to create the inside area of the bunny ears, and eyes. Use M&M's Peanut Easter candies for the nose and tongue.
You may use spice cake mix in place of the carrot cake mix if you wish. Some people don't like that carrot cake has chunks of carrot in it. So you may use a different flavor cake mix if you wish!
