Easter Bunny Cupcakes

Aren’t these cupcakes just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?!

Easter Bunny Cupcake Recipe Tips

  • French vanilla cake is also a vanilla cake, but with a more distinct flavor. If you can’t find a French vanilla cake mix, a box of the regular vanilla will be fine to use.
  • Make the cupcakes according to the package instructions.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to divide the cake batter between the cupcake liners. This will help you get evenly sized cupcakes.
  • This recipe uses a homemade buttercream frosting made with butter, powdered sugar (icing sugar), vanilla extract, and heavy whipping cream (double cream).
  • If you can’t source all the ingredients but have (or can buy) a can of ready-made frosting, then please feel free to use that!
  • The cupcake decorations are ready-made and can be bought online or in craft stores. However, if you can’t source them I have alternatives – see below!

Making Bunny Feet from Fondant

If you’ve not worked with fondant (sugarpaste) before, don’t panic, I’ve got lots of handy tip in my Unicorn Reindeer Cupcakes post that you can check out first.

You will need white fondant and pink fondant to make bunny feet if you can’t buy them ready-made.

Roll out small balls of white fondant and flatten to make a paw shape, then roll out 1 small pink ball of fondant and 3 even small pink fondant balls per paw and flatten slightly.

Use a dab of water to stick the pink paw prints in place – using the photos in this post as a guide – and leave to dry for a few hours before using.

Or you could print off the bunny feet toppers below and use those instead!
