This sounds good! I'll try to make it next time the kids are home.

Last time I made one it was a box mix. But I did make the effort to set aside a little of the frosting in two bowls and tinted some orange and some green and created little carrots around the top edge all around the cake.

I think I made that in honor of the first weekend Sarah brought her lop-eared bunny, Matilda, home for the weekend.
