Happy Easter everyone! I hope you'll having a great day and eating lots of food. Usually I just do simple posts for holidays, but today I actually wanted to give you all a little something. Yesterday was a very rainy day, which means there will always be something baking in my house. On this occasion, it was Easter bunny cupcakes. I got my inspiration from this Taste of Home recipe I found while working. I brought it up to my momma dear and of course she helped out in creating them (mostly all of it). We didn't follow the recipe very precisely, but I loved how they turned out!
These little bunnies are cuteness overload! Enjoy :)
-spice cake box mix
-8 oz cream cheese
-1 bag powdered sugar
-4 Tbl butter, softened
-splash of milk (add as needed)
-1 package sugar cookie mix
-Black icing gel
-Pink and red jelly beans
1. Make cupcakes according to the package and fill up your tins. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-23 minutes. When done, set aside and let cool.
2. Time for frosting! In a bowl, beat together cream cheese, butter, and milk. Gradually add in powdered sugar until creamy and smooth. If you add to much sugar splash some more milk in there and it'll pop right back to normal. Frost cupcakes and set aside....again.
3. Make cookies according to package. My mom actually made the cookies from scratch, but to make this recipe even easier, use the tube stuff. Roll out and cut out bunny shaped ears. If you have a bunny cookie cutter, yay you! If not, it's not that difficult, no worries! Bake, set aside and let cool. Once cooled, stick the ears into the cupcakes.
4. Make your face! You can do this anyway you like. We went through a few different looks before deciding on this one. It's all up to you!
