Easter Bunny

I found this idea on line years ago.  My goal was to copy the idea I saw but mine really didn’t look anything like it and to be honest I kind of liked the way this came out even better.  I say this because it was completely by chance that I found these adorable Lindt chocolate carrots for my little bunny to hold.  This is just cupcakes laid out on a large cutting board that seconds as my cake platter when I wrap it in silver cake platter.  For this one I also covered it in Spring colored tissue paper.

What you will need:

  • Oreo’s for the eyes
  • 24 Cupcakes
  • Frosting – white plus additional colors of your choice
  • Candy for Ms. Bunny to hold
  • Bake 24 cupcakes from your favorite cupcake recipe of box to make life that much easier.
  • Lay the cupcakes out in a configuration that you like.  I would probably try to do something with the feet if I make this again but I was not feeling brave this day.
  • Fill a frosting bag with white frosting using a tip of your choice
  • Pipe the frosting over the cupcakes and decorate as you like.  I chose to smooth the frosting across but there are no rules here – just have fun.
  • For the eyes I used Oreo’s that I piped white frosting on top of
  • I had fun with the eyebrows for create some height and texture before doing the lashes
  • Lay the carrots down and pipe over them to create hands
  • Just watch the kids eyes light up when they see how cute he or she come out!
