The curse of the Target Easter Aisle
I have this problem where I just can’t seem to stop myself when I’m shopping at Target.
I know, it’s a common ailment. But, still, it’s kind of annoying. Especially when I already have a full plate and then an idea hits me. Then not only am I, yet again, spending more money at Target, but I’ve gotta get this idea out before I explode.
That’s how these easy bunny cupcakes came around. Just a quick peruse down the seasonal aisle. Next thing I knew I had a box of cake mix, sprinkles, and sugar decorations. I think I blacked out.

Just like my Easter cookies, th
A plop of frosting, a roll in some sprinkles, and a little bunny on top is all it takes to make these unbearably adorable.

- Mini cupcakes. I used mini cupcakes because I like to limit sugar, but also because one bunny fills the top perfectly.
- Green frosting. I always make my own frosting because
homemadefrosting is the best. But canned would be great too. I love the Wilton Gel Colors best.
- Sprinkles. I bought mine for $3.99 at Target and the tube was enough to cover 24 mini cupcakes. But any green sprinkles would work.
- Bunnies. I used candy bunnies like these and Annie’s graham cracker bunnies.
How to Make Easy Easter Bunny Cupcakes
Time needed: 5 minutes.
These spring treats are easy and quick to make. Use mini cupcakes to offset all of the candy and treats kiddos tend to get this time of year!
- Add your frosting.
I used a round tip to pipe mine out because it’s so much easier. Just add a dollop about 1 tablespoon large of frosting right on top. You could just as easily frost it by hand though.
- Dip in the sprinkles.
Add your sprinkles into a bowl and dip the top of your cupcake into the bowl. Don’t press too hard and you’ll get pretty,
grass likeedges. Shake the bowl between each dip to make sure it’s even.
- Add the bunny.
Finally, press your bunny into the center of your treat. Boom – Easy Easter Cupcakes!
