Back when I was a kid, we made this cake a lot. At least it seems like we did. I don't know if we actually did. But every year when Easter rolls around and I don't make it, my tia asks me why; like it's a tradition that I'm not upholding.
The cake is made from 2 8-inch round cakes. One is left intact and the other forms the ears and bow tie. The cake is Special Birthday (yellow) cake and the frosting is whipped cream. The face is sprinkled with coconut, but the ears and tie are left plain. My nephew and tia helped me decorate with silver dragees, jellybeans and a candy carrot.
