Easter Bunny Cupcakes are simple to make and they’re an adorable Easter treat. Kids will love helping you make them, and you’ll love how easy they are!
This week, I wanted to make a fun Easter treat with my kids, but not something too complicated. The idea for Easter Bunny Cupcakes popped into my head.
These cupcakes turned out super cute and were a big hit with my kids.
I hope you’ll love them as much as we did!
How to Make Easter Bunny Cupcakes
What You’ll Need:
- a cake mix or make your own batch of cupcakes
- a can of vanilla frosting or your own buttercream frosting (I made my own)
- green food coloring
- bunny Peeps
Bake your cupcakes and let them cool. My daughter, Emily, requested chocolate cupcakes (and that’s all I had in the cupboard for cake mixes anyways), so chocolate it is for us. But you can make whatever kind you want. You can do chocolate, vanilla, even carrot cake (wouldn’t that be perfect?!)
Now you’ll need to color the frosting green. I use AmeriColor Gel Paste Food Color – the colors are amazing!
One little drop did that! Beautiful! I find coloring frosting fascinating – it’s fun to see the colors form. Maybe I’m just weird.
Decorate however you like. Fancy or simple.
You can frost the cupcakes with a cake decorating tip (I used Wilton Tip 233.) You can buy the Cake Mate cake decorating tips in the baking aisle and use a star tip by cutting the tip of the corner of a plastic bag and adding the frosting.
Or you can just grab a knife and frost simply. It’s up to you.
Your Easter Bunny Cupcakes will be cute whatever you do, so don’t worry. Brightly colored marshmallow bunnies have a way of doing that. Just have fun with your kids!
Once you’ve frosted a cupcake, add a bunny on the top. You don’t want to wait too long, because the bunny won’t stick as well if the frosting has already dried. The kids love doing this.
And that’s it! You have Easter Bunny Cupcakes!

I find frosting foloring to be equally as fascinating. I’m always amazed when I use food coloring at how easy it is to tint something!
Yes! Thanks for stopping by!

The cupcakes came out great. Whenever I tried to design mine they came out like my kids got hold of them!

These are so cute! And I don’t think they’ll be too hard to decorate, either. I can use gluten free cake mix, and have a wonderful Easter treat for my kids!
Great idea, Lisa!

These are so sweet and cute! I have the nib to make the grass too! I think I might put a couple little candied eggs around the peep too. I’m torn between making this or a chocolate roll that I saw.
I like your candy egg idea – that’s even more fun and festive! Thanks for visiting, Maddie!
it looks so cute!
