Bunny Ingredients/Directions –

White Cupcakes
White frosting
12 large marshmallows
pink Wilton sugar crystals
pink candy hearts (I used leftover Valentine sprinkles, you could
easily substitute a pink M&M if needed)
Wilton black gel icing
Candy eyes

Directions –

Generously frost each cupcake with white frosting and set aside.
Use a pair of kitchen scissors to snip of both ends of the large marshmallows.

Dip the sticky side down into the pink sugar crystals and place on the cupcake as the bunny’s ears.

Next, give each bunny 2 candy eyes and a nose.

Finally, use the Wilton black gel icing to make the bunny’s mouth. Simply make a J and then put a 2nd J on the other side (as shown).
