Easter is a holiday that deserves a cute dessert. I like cute desserts, especially cupcakes. No buts about it, these Easy Bunny Butt Cupcakes are adorable and a fun Easter cupcake recipe to make.

I like getting creative when I am baking. These Easter Cupcakes are very popular. So let’s learn how to make them. These Easter bunny cupcakes are really easy to make. You can make the cupcake batter from scratch or use your favorite box mix.

Bunny Cupcakes Tutorial : Let’s learn how to make Bunny Butt Cupcakes

I kept this recipe pretty basic, simply by using doughnut holes as the bunny’s cute little behind and marshmallows for his feet.

Items Needed To Make Bunny Butt Cupcakes

Pre-baked Cupcakes  (this is my favorite recipe!)

Store bought or homemade buttercream icing: Store bought buttercream and store bought icing are NOT the same. Buttercream is stiffer, than icing and is the recommended option for cake and cupcake decorating. 

Grass piping tip

Donut Holes (or doughnut holes)

Coconut

Confetti Sprinkles

Green Gel Food Coloring: Gel food coloring is preferred over liquid because liquid color will change the consistency of the buttercream icing, where the gel color will not. 

Mini marshmallows

Fit the piping bag with a couple and decorating tip.  Fill the bag halfway with green icing.  Hold the piping above the cupcake, straight up and down and lightly touch the surface of the cupcake.  Lift up as you very quickly squeeze. Stop squeezing and pull the piping bag up. 

Continue this process all the way around the top of the cupcake, squeezing and stopping creating the illusion of grass. If you have hot hands, meaning while you are holding the piping bag the icing begins to “breaK” (the color looks distorted) inside the bag, place it in the fridge for 5 mins to stiffen back up and rub some ice on your hands to keep them cool. 

If only adding the sprinkles to the cupcakes, do it immediately. Once the icing dries the sprinkles will not stick. 

To make the bunny bottom:

Cut the donut hole in half creating two bottoms. Place the holes, cut side down on top of the icing.  Pipe a dollop of white icing on the top of the donut hole. 

Add coconut shreds to create a fluffy tail. Cut a mini marshmallow in half and stick the sticky side to the donut hole creating the feet. If the marshmallows will not stick, use a little bit of white icing to glue them to the donut.
