Mix the cake mix, oil, water and eggs together and whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Pour the cake mixture evenly into your two greased cake tins.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 25 minutes or until a rounded knife inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean, then allow to cool on a cooling rack.

Using a small knife, cut out two ear shapes from opposite ends of one cooled cake, this will also leave you with your bowtie shape. Transfer over to a large platter to assemble your bunny cake.

Colour the remaining coconut pink by mixing it with a few drops of the red food colouring.
