These Easter Bunny Cupcakes are sure to bring a smile to your face this year. Perfect for class parties, family gatherings and potlucks!
I love using cake mixes as a base for a fun and unique cupcake. These Easter Bunny Cupcakes are a super fun way to make a simple yet tasty and adorable treat for Easter. Best part about this is that my kids can enjoy making it with me!
Prepare your cake mix according to directions on the package. We chose a traditional white cake mix, but you could use a different flavor if prefered. While your cupcakes are baking, you can prep your icing and decorations.
Once the cupcakes are ready to decorate, simply top with a little of the homemade icing. Next you get to have fun assembling he bunnies face on each cupcake. Prepping the giant marshmallows is something older kids will definitely love helping you with. Sparkling sugar is almost as much fun as glitter, and yes – it is equally as messy.
Each cupcake will get marshmallow ears, edible grass whiskers and candy eyes The shredded coconut makes perfect fur.
