Easy Easter Bunny Cupcakes: Topped with rich buttercream, shredded coconut, and common Easter candies. A quick and easy Easter dessert that kids will love!
Growing up we always made a bunny cake for Easter. It was basically one round cake with the second round cake cut out to resemble ears/a bow tie.
My Grandpa was the only one who could make it resemble an actual bunny. If I tried to make one today I’d probably just hack away at it until nothing was left LOL!!
However, these Easter Bunny Cupcakes are so easy and nearly fool proof!
Best of all these bunny cupcakes are decorated with common household candies like chocolate chips and marshmallows- no special craft store trick required!
