Easter is finally here! So for a little bit of fun we decided to put together some rather cute cupcakes. Our hot cross bun baking bunny begins the holiday season with the best of intentions. The second bunny is overwhelmed with Easter and buried underneath a myriad of carrots. Finally, our third bunny rabbit has just given in to the gluttony of modern day Easter celebrations… chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate!
Cute Easter cupcakes!
The hot cross bun baking bunny is an apple and sultana cupcake. The carrot overload bunny is a spiced carrot cupcake then with added carrot zest. Finally, the chocolate obsessed bunny rabbit is a vanilla cupcake with chocolate chips and a chocolate ganache filling. Finally, all cupcakes are swirled with vanilla buttercream and fondant icing.
We added a fun ‘organic carrots’ signpost to our ‘overwhelmed’ bunny cupcake along with lots of bright Easter eggs!
Our adorable little chef bunny was certainly busy in the kitchen with its rolling pin, batter splattered floor, mixing bowl and tray full of freshly baked hot cross buns.
Here’s our overwhelmed bunny cupcake. We often feel like the above bunny rabbit most of the time.
Here’s our chocolate overload bunny who has found themselves amidst a plethora of tasty chocolate Easter eggs! We added a little lustre dust to the eggs and wrapper to create a shimmery metallic look. The cupcake flavour for this was vanilla with chocolate chips with a lovely chocolate ganache filling.
Mmm… hot cross buns. For this cupcake we mimicked our favourite hot cross bun flavour and created an apple and sultana cupcake with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon! So tasty.
We’ve also submitted all three of these funny Easter bunny cupcakes to The Pink Whisk’s Easter Makes & Bakes Competition and placed second!
We hope you all enjoy a fun-filled Easter weekend! Hoppy Easter!
