I found these on Paula Deen's website. I haven't made them yet, but plan on it for Easter & wanted to post 'em before then. I'll post my pics when I get 'em made.

How to Make Bunny Cupcakes


  • 1preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • 2In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt baking powder and baking soda.
  • 3In another bowl, whisk together the vanilla, milk & vegetable oil.
  • 4Cream together the butter and sugar with a hand held mixer in a large bowl. Add eggs 1 at a time and mix to combine. alternate the dry and wet ingredients to the butter, sugar & egg mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients.
  • 5Pour the batter 2/3 full (I use an Ice Cream Scoop) into paper lined cupcake pans and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before frosting and decorating.
  • 6Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
  • 7In a large bowl, cream softened butter and add 4 cups sugear, milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth and gradually add the rest of the sugar to reach frosting consistency. (Thsi step actually called for a standing mixer with a paddle attachement, but since I don't have one.....)
  • 8To Decorate
  • 9Frost tops of cooled cupcakes with a thick layer of frosting and dip into coconut (pressing down into the coconut). Place one half of each large marshmallow on an angle for each ear (note: you might have to use a little frosting as glue or Toothpicks). Add colored chocolate candies for eyes and nose. Add two miniature marshmallows ( I Used Colored ones)for cheeks. Cut 6 small pieces of rope licorice for whiskers.
