If you have been hanging out with me on Brooklyn Active Mama since the beginning which was almost 8 years ago, you would know that I had my own cupcake business. I joke now that each of my children birthed something inside of me and my middle child is responsible for my love of baking–particularly cupcakes.
For a while I was experimenting with all kinds of different cupcakes, all flavors, colors, alcohol infused, fillings, different sized cupcakes–you name it. I watched cupcake wars religiously and even took notes from the super popular show.
I scoured Pinterest for more and more recipes while I did middle of the night feedings. I made several dozen A DAY. I would send them to my husband’s job for taste testing. Needless to say he was the most popular guy on the job.
I started getting paid requests to make cupcakes for weddings, bday parties and so much more. I branded myself with labels, stamps and professional boxes. The orders were a nice income supplement while I was on maternity leave from my corporate job. I even had visions of opening up my own little cupcake shop in Brooklyn.
Unfortunately the demands of being promoted at work, plus having a newborn and a 3 year old caught up to me rather quickly. I had to shutter the business because I was simply too exhausted to come home and bake after a long day of commuting, working and mothering.
I never stopped baking for myself though! Cupcakes are still so much fun, and the creativity can truly be endless. I still bake for my kids events at school–not because I want to impress–but because baking is a happy place for me so I take every opportunity to flex that muscle.These #Easter Bunny Ear Cupcakes are super cute for any spring occasion! #cupcakes #bunny #bakingClick To Tweet
Today I am sharing some fun and easy Easter Bunny Cupcakes with you just in time for the Spring season. Although I generally make my cupcakes from scratch, using a box cake mix just makes things a lot easier, especially if you are in a bind!
These cute and easy Bunny Ear Cupcakes are adorable for any Spring events you may have! These super festive cupcakes will be the star of the show!
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 jar premade vanilla icing
- 24 marshmallows
- 1 ½ cups white sprinkles
- 1 cup pink crystal sprinkles
- Bake cupcakes according to package directions and ice with vanilla icing.
- Dip each cupcake in white sprinkles until the top of the cupcake is covered with sprinkles.
- Make the bunny ears by cutting a marshmallow in half at a diagonal, then dipping the sticky side of each half in pink crystal sprinkles.
- Place two marshmallow halves on top of the finished cupcakes, lightly pressing the marshmallows into the icing to secure each ear.
