  1. Prepare cake mix according to directions on box for 2 round 9 layers.
  2. Tint 1/4 cup of the coconut pink (I'm guessing at the amount) for the center of ears and feet.
  3. Tint 2 tablespoons of the frosting brown for decorating face and feet ( or you can buy one of those prepared decorating icing tubes).
  4. When cake is cool, cut layers as shown in diagram (see other photo).
  5. Take 4 of the 8 outer ring pieces and frost the tops. Place 1 of the remaining 4 on top of each and frost top and sides. These will make the feet of the bunny.
  6. Place round-cut center piece next to the top edge of the square, keeping them both flat, to form body and head.
  7. Assemble the 4 side pieces in twos, flat sides together (you can use a little frosting to hold them together) to form the ears and arrange at the top of the head.
  8. Frost entire cake and attach the completed feet, 2 on each side of the body.
  9. Sprinkle coconut over entire cake and decorate with jelly beans/gumdrops for eyes, nose, etc. as desired, using pink-tinted coconut for center of ears and feet.
  10. Here's where you can really have fun and get creative! You can tie the ribbon in a bow and place on the cake as a bowtie, make buttons out of the candy, add a hat, etc.
  11. ** Tip for using frosting to decorate without a pastry bag: Spoon the frosting into one corner of a small plastic sandwich baggie, twist tightly and snip off the tip of the corner. Voila!
  12. Note: The finished cake is almost 2 feet long so be sure to have it on a large enough cookie sheet or platter!
  13. Servings vary on how you decide to divide up the body (er, bunny) parts - .
