Bake cake according to box instructions, using two greased 8×8 inch or 9×9 inch round baking pans. Let the cakes cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Line a large cutting board, serving tray, or baking pan with parchment paper. Place one of the round cakes in the center for the head. To make the ears and bow tie cut 2 convex shaped ears from the second round cake and place on each side of the bunny’s head. Place the concave shaped piece below the head to make the bowtie.
Frost the ears and bunny head with the frosting and then lightly coat the frosting with shredded coconut. Add food gel (color of your choice) to a small mixing bowl and mix in the remainder of the frosting to frost the bowtie.
To decorate the bunny, add jelly beans and/or Easter candy around the bowtie. Use pink jelly beans to decorate the ears. Use black jelly beans for the nose and eyes. Add thinly sliced sour candy belt strips to make the whiskers. Use mini chocolate chips (or regular chocolate chips) to make the mouth,
