Ingredients:
2 3/4 cups flour
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup oil
1 egg
4 egg whites
1 cup buttermilk
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Frosting:

1 1/2 sticks of softened unsalted butter
1 cup of solid vegetable shortening, I used Crisco
5-6 cups of powdered sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2-4 teaspoons of milk

Decorating:

2 bags of edible Easter grass, can be found at JoAnns and Walmart
1 chocolate bunny, I used Lindt
Peanut M & M’s for the Easter eggs or jelly beans
To celebrate spring and Easter, I am sharing a yummy moist vanilla cake and frosting. The cake is decorated in edible grass with a Lindt chocolate bunny and Easter peanut M & M’s.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 2 nine inch pans with grease and flour. Line with parchment and grease and flour that too.
Mix all of the dry ingredients with whisk attachment on low speed to blend. Add oil. Add egg whites one at a time, finishing with the whole egg.
In a small bowl, combine buttermilk and vanilla extract. Add this mixture 1/3 at a time to the batter. Beat 1-2 minutes after every addition.
Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a tester is inserted and it comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
Blend butter and Crisco together. Add vanilla. Slowly add powdered sugar. Add milk to desired consistency. Spread on cooled cake.
Cut edible grass into strips and pat onto cake. Grass is completely tasteless. There is no flavor to it at all. I chose to use this in place of coconut because I am in the only one in my family that likes it! Place chocolate bunny in center and scatter the Easter eggs in the “grass”. Enjoy!
