~ Cupcakes ~ BUNNY CUTE! Easter cupcakes for my peeps.



My daughters and I had some much fun making these cupcakes yesterday.  They turned out so cute, yummy and they were really easy to make. My daughters did most of the decorating, well actually my oldest daughter did, my little one helped, but to make a lot of mess. They sure had fun!


I got inspired by these cute cupcakes on the Betty Crocker website and couldn't resist to make some bunny cupcakes too.  I used coconut to give them a furry look and gave them some big bunny marshmallows teeth.

This is how we made them if you want to make them too:

- Cupcakes: When I'm baking with my daughters I prefer to use a cake box mix, it is just easier this way. I prefer the Betty Crocker brand and for these cupcakes I used the lemon cake mix, it tastes really good with the coconut and butter cream icing.

{I am not affiliated with Betty Crocker in any way, I just want to put it out there :) It's just my preferred brand of cake mixes}

- Butter Cream Icing: {I prefer to make the icing from scratch, Recipe below}

- Shredded coconut

- Marshmallows: mini and regular size

- M&M or smarties for bunny eyes

- Pink jellybeans for bunny nose

- Pink sugar for bunny ears


1.To make the bunny ears, cut one marshmallow crosswise and dip halves in pink sugar.


2. Frost the cupcake with butter cream and dip in shredded coconut. 


 3. Put a little bit of butter cream  under the marshmallows ears to stick them on the cupcake. Decorate with the rest of the candies for the eyes, nose and small marshmallows for bunny teeth.


 4. I had a few heart shaped candies and used them for some bunnies paws and tails, but they look cute without them too.





We had some Marshmallows peeps and made these ones too.



I put a few drops of green icing color in a Ziploc bag with a few drops of water and mixed in with coconut to make instant grass.  I colored the frosting green as well.

They are so adorable you feel so bad to eat them :)



Here is how to make BUTTER CREAM icing:

4 cups (500 grams) of icing sugar
3/4 cup (1 stick or 125ml) of butter, softened
1/3 cup (75ml) of milk
2 teaspoons (10 ml) of vanilla extract

In a bowl beat butter until fluffy, beat in sugar alternately with milk, making 3 additions of sugar and 2 of milk. Beat in vanilla.





HAPPY EASTER!
