Chocolate Easter Bunny Cake is the perfect dessert for all of your Easter celebrations! Easter really is a day of celebrating, so why not have some cake?! A moist, chocolate cake is layered together with decadent cream cheese frosting. Top it off with a chocolate bunny, fresh florals and some Easter-inspired candies and you have a show-stopping cake! Did I mention it was downright delicious, too?
Not only is this cake a decadent dessert to serve, but it also makes for an eye-catching center piece! The chocolate bunny topper really does make it a home run. You could even have little, mini chocolate bunnies to serve each slice with! The more chocolate, the better, right? RIGHT.
Inside this Easter-ready cake are moist, decadent chocolate cake layers. The addition of freshly brewed coffee to the cake batter really brings out a full, intense chocolate flavor from the cocoa powder. You won’t even taste the coffee! Not only does it help bring out the flavor of the chocolate, but the coffee will also help keep the cake moist during the baking process.
Let’s talk frosting. I love me a good, rich cream cheese frosting, and this is just it. Plus, you really can’t go wrong with the combination of chocolate cake and cream cheese frosting. They are a perfect match together! If you prefer to have a fully frosted cake rather than the “naked” cake effect that I went for, I would recommend double the frosting recipe listed below to insure that you have as much frosting as desired. Otherwise, the below frosting recipe works perfectly to get the pictured effect.
