Bunny Ears Cupcakes Ingredients
How to Make Bunny Ears Cupcakes
- Bake your cupcakes and let them cool. While the cupcakes are cooling make your frosting.
- You will also want to prep your bunny ears now as well. Using kitchen shears, cut the marshmallows in half at a angle. Dip the sticky side of the marshmallow into the sanding sugar. You need 2 ears per cupcake, so one marshmallow per cupcake.
- Once your frosting is made, your cupcakes are cooled and your bunny ears are done place your buttercream in a piping bag with a large tip.
- Pipe the buttercream on the top of the cupcakes. If you are unsure on how to do this, check out how to make a cupcake swirl. It is super easy! You only want to have a small cupcake swirl for these cupcakes.
- Next dip the cupcakes into the coconut making sure to keep a round shape.
- Once all of your cupcakes are frosted and have the coconut on the top of them it is time to put your bunny ears on.
- Place a small dot of buttercream to the bottom of the marshmallow and stick two ears on a cupcake.
