In advance: Make candy bunny. Tint 1 oz. candy pink; melt 1 oz. light cocoa. Fill in eye and nose of pan (reserve excess pink); chill until firm.
Use 3 pks. white candy to make candy shell in both halves of pan. Chill until firm; unmold. Use reserved pink candy in cut parchment bag to outline and fill in ear.
Attach halves with melted candy. Slide bunny across warming tray to smooth bottom so bunny will stand. Attach bunny to wrapped cake board cut-to-fit, with melted candy.

Use candy to attach cakes to wrapped, cut-to-fit boards, 1/2 in. wider than cakes. Divide cakes into 8ths.
