Happy Easter!

We're terribly fond of themed events here at Lightbulb Cuisine, so to us, holidays are the bees knees! And this fluffy bunny cake is the pièce de résistance for any Easter feast. Don't load up on ham and potatoes, because this coconut cake is a crowd pleaser.

For the coconut cake you will need:
  • 2 tsp. shortening
  • 4 tsp. sugar
  • 6 teaspoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 6 teaspoons flour
For the finishing touches you will need:
  • prepared vanilla or cream cheese frosting
  • shredded coconut
  • candies, fruit and colored sugar to decorate
Preheat oven for 15 minutes. Grease and flour two Easy Bake pans. Cream together shortening and sugar. Stir in milk and vanilla. Add baking powder, salt and flour. Mix well until batter is smooth. Pour into prepared pans. Bake each for 12 to 15 minutes or until sides separate from pan. Cool and remove from pans.

Cut one cake into the ears and bow tie shapes as shown. Frost cakes and sprinkle with coconut. Add candies to decorate and voila! A whimsical bunny cake fit for a fabulous Easter feast!

That's Easy Baking!

Have a wonderful holiday! Love, Cookie B.

I've done a couple of Easy Bake recipes on my blog, but I haven't gotten this inventive. We had an incident with the pigs in a blanket. Hot dog stuck to a light bulb makes an interesting odor. Cool blog you have!
