Easter Bunny Cupcakes


  • Cupcakes and miniature cupcakes of your choice
  • 1 to 2 cans vanilla frosting (16 ounces each)
  • Green paste food coloring
  • Candy-coated sunflower kernels
  • Assorted stick chewing gum
  • Canned chocolate frosting
  • Jumbo heart sprinkles
  • Miniature marshmallows
  • Corn syrup
  • White nonpareils


  1. Tint desired amount of frosting green. Cut a small hole in the corner of pastry or plastic bag; insert #4 round pastry tip. Fill bag with green frosting; pipe grass onto desired amount of cupcakes.
  2. Sprinkle with sunflower kernels.
  3. For bunny faces, pipe white frosting over tops of cupcakes using a #4 round pastry tip.
  4. Using clean kitchen scissors or a small sharp knife, cut gum into ear shapes of various sizes. Attach smaller centers onto the larger pieces with a small amount of frosting. Pinch base end of each ear, forming a curved shape. Press into tops of cupcakes.
  5. Place a heart sprinkle on each cupcake for nose.
  6. Using a #2 round pastry tip, pipe eyes, whiskers and a mouth on each face with chocolate frosting.
  7. For bunnies, pipe white frosting over remaining cupcakes. Place a miniature cupcake onto a larger cupcake; secure with a toothpick.
  8. For a bunny tail, dip a marshmallow in corn syrup; roll in nonpareils. Place on cupcake. Repeat as desired.

I know Easter isn't until NEXT week, but I couldn't wait until then to share these. ** I found them at Taste of Homes!
