Main Ingredients Needed for Bunny Ear Cupcakes

  • vanilla cupcakes, baked and cooled
  • cream cheese
  • whipping cream
  • powdered sugar
  • large marshmallows
  • pink sanding sugar (sprinkles)
  • candy eyes
  • pink candy for the nose

Recipe Tips & Notes

  • Be sure to cut the marshmallows on a diagonal to create the right shape for bunny ears.
  • Any small, pink candies will work for the noses. I like using heart-shaped sprinkles.
  • You could use any white frosting, but I really liked this whipped cream cheese frosting for this particular cupcake. It’s very light and airy, which makes it easy to press on the ears.
  • I’m not providing a specific cupcake recipe below, because you can use your favorite (or even a cake mix!). But if you’d like to use my favorite vanilla cupcake, here’s a link to the recipe.
