Either way, these bunnies make the perfect cupcake topper and a fun addition to any Easter celebration. Easter is one my favorite parts of Spring!
Easter Bunny Cupcake Ingredients
12 of your favorite vanilla cupcakes
½ cup softened butter
2 cups icing sugar
3-4 tbsp milk
8-9 oz. white fondant
12 candy googly eyes
4-6 oz. pink fondant
1-2 oz. black fondant
Begin by checking on your cupcakes: they have to be completely cool before you begin the decorating process.
Using an electric mixer, make your butter cream by beating together butter, sugar, and milk on medium speed.
Gradually increase speed to high.
Once the buttercream is formed, scoop it into a piping bag and frost the center of each cupcake (use a round icing tip).
Separate your white fondant into 24 spheres, about one inch in size each.
Flatten out the white fondant spheres and then point one end. They will act as your bunnies’ ears.
Roll out a portion of your pink fondant into 24 small spheres, about 1/3 of an inch in size.
Flatten the pink spheres, slightly smaller than your white fondant pieces. Point one end and press one onto each white fondant piece.
Insert a toothpick into each fondant bunny ear.
With the remainder of your pink fondant, roll out 12 small spheres, about ¼ of an inch thick. Place one on the middle of the frosting of each cupcake. Above it, place 2 of your googly candy eyes.
Roll out small, thin strips of your black fondant – you’ll need 48 of them.
Place the black strips on your bunnies’ faces – 2 on either side of its nose.
Gently insert 2 fondant bunny ears on the top of each cupcake. Serve these adorable Easter bunny cupcakes at school or any event and Happy Easter. If you are looking for a few Easter crafts, be sure to click here and check out these fun activities.
