How to Make Easter Bunny Cupcakes (from Marshmallows)

About: I run a little company that rebuilds old homes. When we aren't up to our elbows in demolition dust, I'm obsessed with recycling, crafting and cooking.

We spent the day making bunny cupcakes, using marshmallows! It's an old trick my stepmother taught me when I was little, I altered the concept to make bunny cupcakes, and even little daffodils,too. Give it a try, its an easy and cheap activity to do with the kiddos... We will have to make some more for Easter!

Food scissors

1. Cut each mini marshmallow in half on a diagonal. you will end up with 2  "ears"  from 1 marshmallow.

2. Place the ears into a bag of pink decorative sugars, and give it a little shake. The sugars will only stick to the part of the marshmallow that was cut!

Hint: If you let them 'rest' for a few minutes, they will puff back up.

3. Carefully place your marshmallow 'bunnies' onto your cupcakes! The head of the bunny is just a solid mini marshmallow. 

Hint: You could pipe tiny eyes onto the bunny with chocolate, if you have a steady hand. I do not have a steady hand.
