  • Cake is done when toothpick is inserted 1 inch from side and comes out clean (don't be fooled by melted M&M's®!)
  • FROSTING & DECORATION
  • Allow cake to cool completely, remove from pan
  • Thaw whipped topping
  • Fold whipped topping and cream cheese frosting until incorporated
  • Spread on 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® Milk Chocolate to create the inside area of the bunny ears
  • Use M&M's® Carrot Cake for the eyes
