Growing up my grandmother made an Easter Cake. She made adorable ones like the Easter Bunny Dirt Cake made by my friend Cat and she made one that looked like a bunny. Every year we make an Easter Bunny Cake to honor the tradition. This year we decided to make a Grape flavored one featuring grape juice. We wanted to give it a bit of that jelly bean flavor…it came out pretty good.
Easter Bunny Shaped Cake
- Cake Mix
- 3/4 cup Welch’s 100% Grape Juice
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 egg white
- 1/3 cup oil
Mix all ingredients together as per package directions and bake.
Once cake has been cooled cut out ears and bow tie for your Easter Bunny.
Line a cookie sheet with foil and parchment or wax paper.
Align your cake to form a bunny.
Hopefully your bowtie will not break like mine did, but if it does don’t worry about it because frosting is like concealer for cakes!
I make homemade vanilla frosting for our cake because it is much yummier and easier to frost in my opinion.
I generally don’t like frosting from the jar because it’s way to hard and I can’t controll the sugar.
I also dyed the coconut flakes used for the bunny ears purple with Welch’s 100% Grape Juice.
We had a blast making our cake! It had a slight grape taste – not overpowering.
I would love any feedback on our Easter Bunny Cake – do you have a special Easter tradition?
Hope you have a wonderful Easter!
