Easy Easter Cupcakes are born.. at Target.
I have this problem where I just can’t seem to stop myself when I’m shopping at Target.
That’s how these easy bunny cupcakes came around. Just a quick perusal 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.
Here’s what you’ll need:

- Mini cupcakes. I used mini cupcakes because they’re adorable and kid friendly, 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
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. No need to spread, since the next step evens it out.
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 like edges. 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!
Get the kids involved making these easy Easter cupcakes.
This is the perfect dessert to get kids in the kitchen. They can basically do every step! If you want to avoid mess, frost them yourself and assign sprinkle dipping and bunny application to littles.
