HOW TO MAKE MARSHMALLOW BUNNY CUPCAKES
Making these cute cupcakes is ridiculously easy. You can even make them a day in advance so you don’t have to worry about them on Easter Day. You can use whatever white cupcake recipe is your favorite, or even a box mix.
While your cupcakes are baking and cooling, it’s a good time to work on the bunny ears. Cut a marshmallow in half on the diagonal, and place the two flat sides down. Use a dark pink food coloring pen to color in the cut sides of the marshmallows. You’ll need to do this to one marshmallow for each cupcake.
You’ll also need to sort out some pink Skittles. Both Wild Berry and Tropical Skittles have pink ones. You can even get them both together!
For the head of the bunny, use a large open star tip to pipe buttercream frosting in a nice round tower on top of cooled cupcakes. Place a pink Skittle front and center, with two candy eyes above it. The final touch is nestling a pair of marshmallow ears into the top of the frosting.
Now you have the perfect Easter dessert!
We hope you love these cute marshmallow bunny cupcakes as much as we do.
