Chocolate Bunny Easter Cake
Makes one 8-inch cake
8-inch round cake with white frosting
3 to 4 packs of Edible Green Apple Easter Grass
Water (to sprinkle over grass)
Candied eggs or jelly beans (for decoration)
Chocolate bunny (for decoration)
1. Bake or purchase an eight-inch round cake with white buttercream frosting.
2. Unroll one package of edible grass and cut into one- to two-inch pieces using clean kitchen scissors.
3. Spread grass clippings out onto a tray and, very sparingly, sprinkle a few drops (about one teaspoon) of water over the top. Do not allow grass to get too wet or it will start to disintegrate.
4. Using your hands, mix up the grass to spread the water; the blades will start to clump together. (If the grass dries out and stops sticking together, add a little more water.)
5. Pull off a tiny clump of grass and stick it to the side of the cake, gently pushing it into the frosting. Repeat with another small clump of grass, sticking it very close to the last clump.
6. Repeat with additional clumps and additional packages of grass until the entire cake is covered. Fill in bare spots with a tiny clumps or single blades.
7. Place chocolate bunny on top of the cake and surround it with eggs. Allow grass to harden before serving. If you are planning to refrigerate the cake, remove it 30 minutes before serving to allow it to come to room temperature.
