Easter is coming so quickly, this year. On one hand, I am excited to see Spring arrive. On the other hand, I am so not prepared! These cute little Easter Bunny Cupcakes, thankfully, are so simple to make that I might just be able to pull a fun Easter off without too much stress.  Last week in Northwest Indiana, we were hit with a pretty nasty blizzard. The result was a pretty nice view to wake up to.

The kids had a day off of school. You would think I would have less time to get things like bunny cupcakes creations, done. Really, without 4 lunches to make, homework to pack up, bus stops to wait at, and the race against the clock to get everything done before they get home…a day with the kids just hanging out is way more productive for me. (Sometimes!)

Tips and Tricks for Making these Easter Bunny Cupcakes

  • no fancy cupcake recipe is required. I just used a boxed cupcake mix
  • mini marshmallows can be made flat with a rolling pin or just squeezed until flattened out a bit
  • use a small watercolor paintbrush to color the bunny feet with pink frosting
  • toothpicks are a great tool for making the toes for the bunny feet
  • for an added touch, you can add a mini marshmallow that has been cut in half to the back of the cupcake wrapper for the bunny tail
