Louise1376, I have troubles in that area as well so I tried putting the cake in the freezer for a while to make it to where it is almost frozen, take it out of the freezer and "brush off" the areas you need to frost. I do this with the round cakes as well. It will get rid of those little crumbly pieces while still holding everything in tact. I've also tried to warm the frosting up a bit in the microwave on top of the frozen cake. I've had good results from this. I hope this is helpful to you. Good luck!

I love this cake. Not everyone likes coconut so I just use vanilla frosting, then I dye some coconut green and put it on the platter around the bunny to look like grass my kids love it

Love this cake. I've made it for my children, and now my grandchildren. Always fast and easy to make, but I do have trouble frosting the cut edges. Any helpful suggestions?

I have been making this cake for over 30 years and my mom made this cake since I was a small child. The only difference was that my mom made a whole bunny ( the head, bowtie, body, feet and tail.) we have a very large family! She made the head vanilla and the body chocolate so everyone had their favorite flavor. Easter would not be the same without this cake and the memories from my Easter growing up. Even though my children are grown they still look for this treat after Easter dinner and now my 2 year old grandson will also be excited to see this on Easter. HOPPY Baking!

I have made this cake for many, many years. My two boys are now 36 & 40 & I don't think that there has been a Easter that I idn't bake this cake even though they have never liked coconut, so just the ears were decorated. I now bake this every year for my 5 & 10 year old grandchildren.

As a child, my mother made this for my April birthday for many years. It holds such fond memories that I still love it when she makes it for me.... even though I am 45! :)
She would make it with M & M's instead of jelly beans and she actually tinted the coconut pink for the ears.
Thanks for helping me relive a fond memory.
