A cupcake is just a blank canvas for delicious creativity. I wanted to make cute, Easter-worthy treats that would take these little blank canvases into spring. I thought I would stop with the fluffy Easter bunnies, but I couldn’t resist some little yellow chicks as well.

I started with my favorite Vanilla Cupcakes recipe and a double batch of my Fluffy Vanilla Frosting.

My Fluffy Vanilla Frosting is the most popular recipe on my site. Rightly so, it is melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and easy to make. It works for cupcakes, cakes and cookies. Leftovers even make stellar graham cracker cookies (the cookies you made as a kid with frosting simply slathered between two graham crackers!).

Both the cupcake recipe and the frosting are simple, basic recipes that the kids can even help with. I love a good cake mix though, so feel free to reach for a box of your favorite flavor and bake it up. That will work too!

I don’t suggest store bought frosting however. It isn’t quite thick enough to pipe and hold the shape for the bunny and chick heads.

Tint one batch of the frosting yellow for the chicks. You’ll end up with about 2 dozen cupcakes, 12 bunnies and 12 chicks.

Here are the things you’ll need for the adorable Easter bunny cupcakes:

Bunny cupcake ingredients

Directions for Easter Bunny Cupcakes:

  • Mound and smooth three or four tablespoons of frosting on top of a cupcake.
  • I added the ears first. I love the bunny ears made from marshmallows and wanted to use them on these little guys. You simply cut a marshmallow in half diagonally, then dip the cut side in pink sugar. The sugar sticks to the soft insides. I did have to put a little cooking spray on my scissors so the marshmallows didn’t stick with each cut.
  • Then covered the entire thing with white sprinkles.
  • I cut a mini marshmallow in half for the bunny cheeks, used a jelly bean for the nose.
  • Pipe black decorator icing on for the eyes. Just use the black icing you find in the baking isle at the grocery, nothing fancy. It usually comes with some basic piping tips, and I just used the smallest, plain tip for the eyes.

 

The cutest Easter Bunny and Chick Cupcakes you’ve ever seen are so easy to make! Get the kids involved!

 

 

Chick Cupcakes

Like I mentioned, I couldn’t resist a baby chick cupcake too! Especially when I saw the chicklets gum at the store. The orange chicklets are perfect for little beaks! If your store doesn’t have chicklets gum handy, get creative and use what you can find; you could use Airheads candy, or an orange M&M.

Here’s what you’ll need for the fluffy yellow chick cupcakes:

Directions for making chick cupcakes:

  • I tinted my frosting yellow and piped it on the cupcakes in a simple spiral using the large plain piping tip.
  • Cover the top with yellow sprinkles for that feathery poof and sprinkle the entire thing with sanding sugar.
  • Add your orange beak and black eyes and you’re done.
