Spring/Easter Cupcakes

Easter is now less than a week away!   It’s so late this year, so I seems like we’ve been talking Easter for a long time!

But Easter is such a perfect time for all the cute adorable treats!  Next to Christmas, I think it’s my favorite holiday for goodies, maybe even more so, because there doesn’t seem to be the pressure Christmas has.

Any way…….I just grabbed a cake mix and fixed it up using  the Perfect Cupcake from a Box “recipe.

Mixed up a batch of Butter Cream Frosting and got to work on a few fun Spring and Easter Cupcakes.

Easter Bunny Cupcakes

Supplies Needed

Easter Bunny Cupcakes

  • roll out fondant about 1/4-inch thick (I like to use my silicone baking mat when working with fondant)
  • on a piece of creased parchment or wax paper, cut out bunny ears -I didn’t have a bunny cookie cutter with ears that I could use, so I used  printable bunny ears and made a template to cut out my ears from the fondant
  • smooth out the edges
  • using a clean small brush (that I only use for food), brush water on the fondant ear in the area that you would like to be the pink center
  • sprinkle ear with pink sanding sugar
  • pick up ear and gently tap so excess sugar fall off, and set aside to dry
  • after decorating all of your ears, pick up both sides of parchment or wax paper bringing excess sanding sugar to the center
  • pour back into your container of sanding sugar
  • let fondant dry/harden for about 30 mins, then place into frosting on cupcake, place toothpicks behind the ears to help support
