You might remember when I shared how to make these bunny butt cupcakes, plus I shared how to bake the perfect cupcake. Making cupcakes can be so fun. And a fun activity to do with the kids. My granddaughter loves to bake but, even if your kids (or grandkids) don’t bake they can help you decorate these bunny cupcakes.

Step 8

  • Flatten the pink spheres, slightly smaller than your white fondant pieces. Point one end and press one onto each white fondant piece.

Step 9

  • Insert a toothpick into each fondant bunny ear.

Step 10

  • With the remainder of your pink fondant, roll out 12 small spheres, about ¼ of an inch thick. Place one on the middle of the frosting of each cupcake to make the nose. Above it, place 2 of your googly candy eyes to each side of the nose.
