The sun has been shining the past few days, and I am in the mood for Easter! If you’ve been following my blog long, you know that I love making fun foods for holidays. Easter is one of my favorites to cook for, because there are so many possibilities! Last year we decided to decorate some Easter cupcakes. In one of my recipe binders I found a picture of some adorable bunny cupcakes that I had clipped from a magazine years ago. They were so cute that I just had to give them a try!
We started with the idea of making just bunny cupcakes, but my youngest son asked if we could make chick cupcakes. Then I thought of my cute Nest Cookies and thought they could be adapted into cupcakes. So we ended up making three varieties of cupcakes in one afternoon. And boy did we have fun!
Before you start, you will need to bake some cupcakes and make some frosting. Or use store bought, whatever floats your boat. I used these Coconut Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting, and boy are they tasty! Hope you have fun.
Three Adorable Easter Cupcakes
Cute Cupcake #1– Bunny Cupcakes
What you need:
-cupcakes and white frosting
-pink jelly beans
-pink sugar (I just added a few drops of food coloring to some sugar in a bowl, put the lid on, and shook it up till it blended together.)
How to assemble:
-Frost your cupcake with white frosting.
-Sprinkle with coconut.
-Cut large marshmallows into slices using scissors dipped in hot water. Dip one sliced end into pink sugar, then pinch at the bottom to form an ear. Push the pinched end onto the top of the cupcake slightly off center. Repeat for the other ear.
-Add chocolate chip eyes and a jelly bean nose. (I cut my jelly beans in half.)
