  • Summary

    Carrot cake, naturally, is the foundation for our cotton-candy-tailed Easter bunny cake. Miniature marshmallows make fur that is inexpensive, easy to apply, and fun to eat, while gold licorice whiskers are a cute touch.

    • 6 large eggs, room temperature

    • 4 cups sugar
    • 3 cups vegetable oil
