These are adorable and so easy to make. I LOVE cupcakes and what a cute way to decorate for Easter. I think I may do several with just green coconut and jellybeans too, instead of all bunnies, and maybe it will look like they are in a Easter egg hunt. Thanks a bunch for sharing. Love it
It was fun to try, but I doubt I will make again. VERY time consuming and quite messy. I ended up cutting the ears in half as they looked more like mice than bunnies and had great difficulty with the ears staying on. Cute idea, but LOTS of patience is required!
The donut heads were hard to frost. Very cute though! I never used the coconut. My daughter and my son had alot of fun making them. Messy too!
Easier than it appears if you're not looking for perfection but fun with the kids. I used tubed writting icing from a craft store for the eyes, whiskers and nose. Well I had fun! Oh I used a toothpick through the back of the ears, pinching them together and pushing the toothpick between the two so I could grasp some marshallow. I pushed the pick far into the cupcake to conseal.
Made for my daughter's class party. Omitted coconut as none of the students would eat it. Used icing inside the ears instead and worked well. Added a gumball coverd in icing for a tail and used toothpicks to hold together (easier druing transport down long country roads...). Very cute, super easy and have passed out the recipe to many other moms!!!
made these with my 7 yr old- they were fun to do! the marshmallow ears didnt always stand up but we had floppy eared bunnies I guess!! Gave 4 stars bc somewhat of a process
Very cute! Didn't look quite like they did in the picture, but still cute. A lot of work.. I don't think I would make again.
Totally cute. Toothpicks help to keep 'heads' on bunnies. Important to use FRESH coconut - buy a new package, don't use opened one you may have in cupboard. There are a couple steps missing:
First you gotta make the cupcakes….then you gotta cut the black licorice into little teeny tiny strips to make whiskers….and dye the coconut different colors….and frost donut holes (DO NOT underestimate how difficult or messy THAT is), and then you gotta make frosting (Ok – I cheated and bought the canned stuff)….and got back to the store three times because 1) you thought you had cupcake wrappers on hand…and you did….3; 2) you didn’t think about how you connect the donut hole (head) to the cupcake (body) and then realized that toothpicks would work but you don’t have any; 3) by now you’re out of wine and need more
