A friend of mine surprised me with these Easter Bunny cupcakes the other day. They were delicious, so I thought I would share them. The eyes and nose are made from jelly beans, the whiskers from licorice, and the ears from sticks of gum. Shredded coconut gives the cupcake that fluffy Easter bunny look.
If you’re looking for a fun Easter craft I really like these crepe paper surprise bunnies from Martha Stewart. The bunnies are made of crepe paper, tissue paper, and cupcake wrappers. You will also need candy or trinkets to fill the bunnies with. I love that you can use supplies that your already have on hand to make the bunnies and each will be unique! For the template and instructions visit the Martha Stewart website.
Easter is my favorite cupcake holiday. You can do anything you want with pastels and you’re good to go–so many options! Plus, I’m kind of obsessed with bunnies. Anyway, here is my first attempt this year. (For the grass, I used Wilton tip 233.) If you try this, I HIGHLY recommend Starburst jelly beans. I don’t even like candy, and these are delicious!

Be on the lookout for a new Hallmark Channel movie titled Operation Cupcake, starring Dean Cain and Kristy Swanson. The movie preimeres Sunday, June 17th at 8 Eastern. The movie tells the story of an Army dad who suddenly finds himself working in a cupcakery. Apparently, he tries to take a military approach to cupcaking. Hmm…
Oddly enough, there was another movie with the same name, albeit, bearing a colon, Operation: Cupcake, from 2006. I can find no connection between the movies though, except for the well, love of cupcakes.
