Easy Easter Bunny Tail Cakes

Make these Easter bunny tail cakes for the holiday, or for any time you want a cute dessert. They're easy, yummy, and cute! You'll need one recipe of cake batter (I used yellow, you could use whatever you like,) frosting, flaked coconut, and silicone baking pans in half circle molds (I bought mine from Amazon.)

Make cake batter and grab an ice cream scoop (so much easier than a spoon or measuring cup). Fill with cake batter and bake about 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cake comes out clean.

Cool the cakes for about 10 minutes and then slide a knife along the top of the pan to even out the tops.

Smear one side with frosting, or even fill with a little jam, and join two halves together.

This is the messier part -- you have to coat the outside with frosting (it's easier if the frosting is a little softer.)

I dyed the coconut by add two drops of food color to two cups of coconut and shaking them in a covered jar until it was lightly pink (or blue, green, etc.)

Roll the frosted cake in coconut flakes.

Let them sit for a few minutes on a wire rack to set up. Tada! Perfect for Easter or a cute spring brunch.
