Pink Saturday-Easter Bunny Cupcakes

Welcome everyone to Pink Saturday! Be sure to visit Beverly @ How Sweet the sound for all the Pink Goodness going on today! I just love Pink Saturdays!
Today I am posting about "Pink Easter Cupcakes"....get out your baking supplies you are going to love this!
Oh my goodness! I have made quite a few cupcakes...I love it. I'm not sure who will eat all this goodness but I am enjoying the fun of making them. I visited Walmart and walked down this isle of candy goodness and fun! I got so excited as things literally jumped off the shelves and into my cart! "Oh my I exclaimed to those who walked by me with their eyebrows raised...." I smiled and as if I needed to explain all this candy in my cart to other passer bys....I said "I have alot of children (they are away at college...but...)
later!!!! Oh my gosh! I'm sending things to my college kids for Easter....after I use most of it for decorating cookies and cupcakes!

So the baking began and I sprayed my cupcake liners with Pam before I put the cake mix in and thenbaked them...Hey where did those cupcakes go?
Lots of yummy goodness to decorate Oh 1000 cupcakes with
First we start with a chocolate malted egg candy!....Then we addtwo little pink marshmallows for bunny cheeks, M&M's for eyes,
edible Easter grass from Germany (actually Walmart carries this in loads of colors...)for the Whiskers

next I took marshmallows (pink ones) cut them in half and dipped the cut (sticky) side down in pink sugar sprinkles

Don't they make the cutest ears?
Next Walmart had M&M's in several different colors but all solid...like all orange, all pink...I need to go back and get more orange for the fall. I had never seen them packaged this way!

If you have bunnies you have to have carrots! I loved these and boy would they be good with a cup of coffee in the afternoon. I ended up taking about 40-50 cupcakes to church and a birthday party...they were so tasty I had to get them out of my house!

This was so much fun! You have got to visit this cupcake site, they had loads of ideas.
Love it.

Blessings,(licking frosting off my hands as I type this!)

So cool! Those bunny cupcakes are delicious and fun!

Now I am so hungry! And I always want cupcakes - always! Whatever happened to cherry chip cake mix? It's the very best for pink holidays and for piling on heaps and heaps of frosting! Now it would need your bunnies and carrots!

Happy Pink Saturday!
