Bunny Butt Cupcakes
Not only are these Easter bunny butt cupcakes super cute, they’re also super easy to make! Start by making your favorite cupcake recipe.
Frost the cupcakes with white frosting.
Roll the top of the cupcakes in white sprinkles so that the sprinkles stick to the frosting.
Cut regular-sized marshmallows in half diagonally to create two bunny feet.
Use pink cake decorating icing to add toes and paws to the cut part of each marshmallow half.
Stick the feet onto the bunny butt cupcakes using some more frosting to secure them, then add a mini marshmallow in the center as a bunny tail.

There are a few different ways that you can make bird’s nest cupcakes, but I personally love these bird nest cupcakes with coconut. They are really easy to make, and so festive for spring. Here’s how to make them.
Toast shredded coconut in the oven. Make your favorite cupcake recipe, then frost the cupcakes with white frosting. Add a ring of the toasted coconut around the top edge of the cupcake so that it is shaped like a nest.
Place a few candy eggs in the center of the toasted coconut bird’s nest.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Carrots Cupcakes
I am a big fan of using candy melts to add some festive color and theme the easy way. These carrot chocolate covered strawberries are the perfect example, and make an easy and yummy cupcake topper for carrot cake cupcakes. Here’s how to make these chocolate covered strawberry carrots cupcakes.
Melt orange candy melts per package directions. Dip strawberries into the melted candy coating and place on a piece of wax paper until the candy coating dries and hardens. You can place them in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to expedite the hardening process.
Make your favorite carrot cake cupcake recipe and frost with cream cheese frosting.
Add the carrot chocolate covered strawberries to the top of the carrot cake cupcakes. Yes – it’s that easy!!
