Step Five - Find the Right Serving Plate and Finish Icing
Choose just the right serving plate. You may need a plate that not only will hold the bunny but would fit in a cake carrier tall enough for the bunny ears.
Ice the entire bunny with 1-1/2 to 2 cups of frosting.

Step Eight - Place the Ears
These ears are orange and a little short is because we used some dried mango already had on hand. There are other bunny ear options like dried fruit roll-ups or even using cut pink construction paper. It's your choice.

Step Nine - Make the Eyes and Nose
To make the eyes and nose, use jelly beans -- black ones for the eyes and an orange one for the nose. If we were using red or pink for the ears, we would have used red or pink jelly beans instead.
