Easter Bunny Cake

4 oz Soft Margarine
4 oz Caster Sugar
4 oz Self-Raising flour
2 Eggs, Beaten
Grated Rind and juice of 1 orange

DECORATION

4 oz Slightly Salted Butter
8 oz Sifted Icing Sugar
4 oz Dessicated Coconut
Blanched Almonds(for ears)
Glace Cherries, halved(for noses)
Angelica Strips (Whiskers)
Currants (for eyes)

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease individual castle-pudding moulds. Put margarine, sugar, flour and eggs in a bowl. Combine ingredients, then beat well until mixture is light in colour and texture. Stir in orange rind and juice. Divide mixture between moulds, filling each about halfway (tap tins so mixture reaches bottom). Stand tins on a baking tray and bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and well risen.

Turn on to a wire tray and leave to cool. Beat butter until soft, then gradually add icing sugar, beating ingredients together to give a soft, creamy consistency. Trim bases of cakes so they stand level. Holding each cake on a fork, spread buttercream over the top and sides, then roll cake in dessicated coconut to coat. Recipe suggests blanched almonds, glace cherries, angelica strips and currants to mae bunnies' ears, noses, whiskers and eyes.
