Easter Bunny Cupcakes

These super cute and easy decorative cupcakes will be a hit with your little ones like they were with mine!
These Easter Bunny Cupcake Wrappers turned out simply adorable. They make a perfect favor/treat for a school party, an Easter Sunday brunch, or you can give them out to family and friends as Easter gifts. I made the bunnies in white and pastel colors—all of them turned out to be incredibly cute!
Easter Bunny Cupcake Wrappers

You will need:
  • card stock
  • googly eyes
  • small and medium pom poms
  • markers
  • cupcakes from your favorite recipe or mix
  • icing store bought or home made
  • food coloring
  • shredded coconut
  • craft glue

Bake cupcakes per recipe or box.
While the cupcakes are baking follow these steps:
  1. Collect a piece of paper, a pencil, and a ruler
  2. Make the wrapper pattern by drawing a long strip that is 10” long by 1 ¾” wide
  3. Make the Outside Ear and Feet pattern by drawing a strip that is 3 ½” long by 1 ½” wide with one end rounded
  4. Make the Inside Ear pattern by drawing a strip that is 3” long by 1” wide with one ended rounded
3. Cut out your pattern from cardstock or scrapbook paper. For each cupcake, you must cut 1 Wrapper, 4 Outside Ear/Feet, and 2 Inside Ears. Be creative with your colors!

4. Use craft glue to glue 2 googly eyes and 1 small pom-pom to the center of each Wrapper (see picture) to create a Bunny Face; add a Bunny Mouth using a marker. Set the Wrappers aside to let the glue dry for a few minutes

5. Once the glue has dried, create circles with the Wrappers and fasten the back with a staple

6. Glue the Inside Ears to the center of the Outside Ears so the Outside Ear is showing all the way around like a border. Lay the Ears aside to dry
7. Use a marker to draw toes on the Bunny Feet 

8. Glue a medium pom-pom to the back of the Wrapper for the Bunny Tail 

9. Use a little tape and glue to secure the Bunny Ears to the back of the Wrappers so they will show above the cupcake in the back. To hold the ears in place while they dry, use paper clips. Set Wrappers aside 

10. Color your favorite decorator icing with food coloring to match your Cupcake Wrappers
11. Decorate the cupcakes with your favorite decorating tip, or smooth the icing over the cupcakes with a knife. If you want, you can sprinkle shredded coconut on top of the icing to look like the hair on the top of the Bunny’s Head
12. Once the glue is completely dry, carefully insert the decorated cupcakes into the Wrappers
13. Slide two feet under each cupcake
