Why not make these cute Bunny Cupcakes for Easter this year. I made these cute little guys last year and unfortunately I didn't take pictures for a tutorial of them, but they are super easy to do and I still wanted to share :)

What you will need:
*Baked cupcakes of your choice
*Buttercream icing
*Heart shaped sugar cookies for the ears (I trim my hearts down on the sides to make them a    bit skinnier)
*White fondant
*Pink fondant
*White craft pom poms for tails

For the ears:
*To cover the ears in fondant I take a heart shaped sugar cookie that has already been trimmed and baked; I roll out a small amount of white fondant and place it over the ears. I then take a small pizza cutter or the cutter tool found in this Wilton kit and trim the fondant just inside the edge of the cookies. Roll out a small amount of pink fondant and cut out the pink ear pieces (I just free hand the pink pieces, but you could make a template if you wanted). To get the fondant to stick to the cookie and to stick the pink fondant on the white, I use a bit of clear vanilla extract with a small paint brush.

For the cupcake:
*Using a tip 1A, or simply cut the end of a bag so you have about a 1/2 inch opening, pipe the top of the cupcakes. Color some of the buttercream pink and black. Use a tip 3 to pipe the eyes and noses of the bunnies*.

Put it all together:
*Gently press the ears into the top of the iced cupcake. *I like to pipe the eyes and the nose on the bunny after I put the ears in. Using a hot glue gun, glue the bunny tails on to the back of the cupcake paper.

"And That's All Folks" ;)
