Marshmallow Easter bunny cupcake

Make the ears less pointy, and it’s a lamb! I modified this idea from a magazine. So cute for Easter.

What You need: cupcake; white frosting; mini marshmallows; 1 large marshmallow; 2 1/2 pink Jelly Belly jelly beans; 2 mini chocolate chips; kitchen shears.

How to Make it: Cut large marshmallow in half widthwise, pinch to form points, and add jelly beans to the sticky sides. Place near top for ears. Arrange mini marshmallows to form rabbit fur. Cut jellybean in half and place for nose. Add two mini chocolate chips for eyes.

Easter bunny cupcake with marshmallow ears
These bunnies are cute at Easter or anytime. The marshmallow rabbit ears make them hoppin’ easy to make, and the coconut gives them a furry appearance.
What You Need: 1 cupcake; white frosting; coconut flakes; pink gel writing icing; pink sugar or sprinkles; regular-sized marshmallows; pink jellybean; 2 blue mini M&Ms.
How to Make It: Frost cupcake white. Sprinkle with coconut flakes. Cut marshmallow in half widthwise using kitchen shears or scissors with a bit of powdered sugar on them to prevent sticking. Dip sticky side of marshmallows in pink sugar, or sprinkle it on. Pinch marshmallow a bit to make ears long and pointy. Add M&M eyes and jelly bean nose. Use pink writing icing (we used the gel kind) to draw whiskers.

Valentine’s Day Flower Cupcake
These lovely, pink-tinged flowers are made from marshmallows. If you’d prefer a smaller flower, just use mini marshmallows. A more colorful flower: tinted marshmallows. You get the picture.
What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); frosting (we used pink); marshmallows; round red candy; pink sugar crystals; kitchen shears (or plain old scissors, but they’ll get sticky.)
How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Cut three marshmallows in half as shown. Sprinkle with pink sugar crystals, which will stick to the sticky marshmallows. Arrange 5 marshmallow halves on top of cupcake and place red candy in center. (You will have an extra marshmallow petal left over. Eat it or make more cupcakes.)
