If you have been hanging out with me on Brooklyn Active Mama since the beginning 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. I was baking all flavors, colors, alcohol infused, fillings, different sized cupcakes–you name it. Cupcake wars was watched 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. My husband would even take them to work with him. Needless to say he was the most popular guy on the job.
I started getting paid requests to make cupcakes for weddings, birthday 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, 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! I don’t do it because I want to impress–but because baking is a happy place for me so I take every opportunity to flex that muscle.

Easter Bunny Ear Cupcakes
Today I am sharing some fun and easy Easter Bunny Ear 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 adorable Easter Bunny Ear cupcakes use cake mix and is super fun to make with the kiddos!
How do you store these Easter Bunny Cupcakes?
The best way to store Easter Bunny Cupcakes is in an airtight container lined with paper towels. This will help keep the cupcakes from drying out and also prevent them from becoming soggy.
If storing for more than a few days, it is better to freeze the cupcakes instead of refrigerating them. When ready to serve, thaw the cupcakes in the refrigerator overnight and bring them to room temperature before serving.
Where do you serve Easter Bunny cupcakes?
Easter Bunny Cupcakes are perfect for any Easter celebration, whether it’s an Easter dinner or a kids’ party. They also make great treats for classmates, teachers, or colleagues at work.
If you plan to serve them outside of the home, be sure to bring along the icing and sprinkles so guests can decorate their own cupcakes.
