"Very cute and easy to make, however, I thought they were very bland. Added some flavoring to the 2nd batch and they were slightly better, but not great."

"Cute recipe, easy to make but if your cake batter is too runny, you have to be really quick to form the bunnies. Kids loved them, it was like Easter pancakes, emphasis on cake!"
