Easter Cupcake Decorating Ideas For Kids

Easy Easter Bunny Cupcakes Recipe

Cupcake papers are a material for which I find endless uses. Lightweight and food-safe, they are perfect for not only baking cupcakes but for decorating them, too! Use them to create bunny ears and chick wings for an easy and cute Easter dessert. Get your kids to help cut out the shapes, dip the cookies in white chocolate, and place the sprinkle eyes and noses.

How-To: Bunny In The Grass

Easy Easter Bunny Cupcakes Recipe

1. Cut out bunny ear shapes from the ribbed edge of the cupcake papers. Fold each ear in half. (Fold against a table edge to get a sharp crease.)

2. Line a tray or baking sheet with wax paper. Melt white chocolate in a double boiler. Dip the oval cookies halfway into the melted white chocolate.

3. Place the cookie on the wax paper and tuck two ears behind the top of the dipped side of the cookie. Place jumbo nonpareil eyes and a nose onto the white chocolate beneath the ears. Repeat to make as many bunnies as you’d like.

4. Place tray in the refrigerator and allow bunnies to chill for around 30 minutes or until chocolate hardens.

5. Gently pull the bunnies off the waxed paper and push into each into a frosted cupcake. Place a few pieces of green sprinkle “grass” onto the frosting.

2. Frost cupcakes. Place yellow sanding sugar, sprinkles or nonpareils into a bowl and press frosted cupcake top in to coat. Place jumbo nonpareil eyes and gumdrop beak onto cupcake top. Use small dots of icing to “glue” the wings to the sides of the cupcake.

Remind children to remove the paper ears and wings before eating!
