Bunnies in the Grass Cupcakes

Tomorrow is our big annual
 Easter Egg Hunt
and these Bunny Bum cupcakes
are going to be perfect for the lunch.

Bunny Bottom Cupcakes
Just make your favorite cupcake and your favorite 
white frosting.  

Butter Frosting
1/2 C. softened butter
4 C. powdered sugar
1 tsp. almond flavoring
2-3 T. water, milk or cream
(water will give the easiest to use frosting as it
will be a little stiffer, cream will make the softest)

Mix all in a mixing bowl and beat with the
wire whip until smooth and fluffy.  You want
this a little on the stiff side so that you can pipe it
and it will hold its shape.  I choose water when I 
want the frosting to hold its shape better.
Add more or less water as needed depending on
where you live.  We live in the desert west so we often
have to add more liquids to our recipes.

I frosted the tops of the cupcakes and then piped
using Wilton's 233 tip, which looks like grass for
the rabbit fur.  Pipe a little extra for the tail.

For the ears and feet just melt a little white chocolate
(I prefer discs to chips.  I think they melt better and
create a smoother finished product)
and pipe it into oblong shapes for the feet and
long pointed shapes for the ears.  Using a little pink
or red food coloring, color some of the white chocolate
to make the bottoms of their feet and use a toothpick
to make the pads of their feet with the pink.

I made the mistake of doing pink on the 
undersides of the ears, but since they are headed
down into the grass, only the back sides of their
ears should be showing.

Growing up our Easter Bunny always left
 trails of jelly beans and candy 
to help us find the baskets.  Sometimes
the bunny even hopped across our beds - we sure remember
that year.  That tradition continued in our home.

Well, I had better 
hop along
as I have more fun treats to make.

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

    Visiting a little late for Pink Saturday. My entry is a product of creativity. Have a great weekend!

  31. Jacqueline, You always make these treats sound so easy to make but in fact if I tried my bunnies would have to go all the way into the hole and just leave their ears showing. The Easter bunny always left candies going up the stairs and into my kids bedrooms, until one year when we discovered that the bottom four steps had been cleared of the chocolate eggs by the dog, and we spent the rest of the day worrying about her, of course! I do love your little bunnies. Linda

    I'm on Mr. Magpie's computer (his laptop to be exact) racing around and out visiting the sweet folks like you who came by to visit me. This is awful not having my own computer, but hopefully that will change in the not too distant future.

    Love to you. Missing you much, but I'm so glad I got to see this post. It really made me smile!
