1/3 cup sparkling lemon water (from 12-oz can)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs

1 can of your favorite whipped white frosting
Pink icing from a tube or pink-tinted coconut
1 large marshmallow
2 malted milk balls
3 rolls cherry-flavored chewy fruit snacks, unwrapped
Black decorating gel
Thin pretzel sticks



  1. Heat oven to 325ᵒF. Spray 2 BAKER'S SECRET® ROUND 8" CAKE PAN with cooking spray. Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper to fit in bottom of pans; place in pans. Spray paper with cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, lemonade concentrate, sparkling water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter into pans. Bake 20 to 28 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove cakes from pans. Carefully peel off parchment paper; cool completely, right side up, on cooling rack.
  3. Cut ears from one of the cakes. Cut remaining cake in half for paws. Place shapes together to form bunny. Frost all cake pieces.
  4. Using pink icing, frost center of ears. Cut marshmallow crosswise into thirds with kitchen scissors. Use 2 of the marshmallow pieces for eyes (enjoy the third!). Place a malted milk ball on each marshmallow piece for eyeball, using a little frosting to hold it in place.
  5. Microwave one of the unwrapped fruit snacks 10 seconds on High to soften; roll in hands into a ball. Place on cake for nose. Draw mouth on cake with black decorating gel. Add pretzel sticks for whiskers.
  6. Microwave another fruit snack as directed above; roll with rolling pin to flatten. Cut into paw pads with scissors; place on one of the paws. Repeat with remaining fruit snack for the other paw.
