Yield Makes 24
Perfect for Easter or a spring-themed birthday party for a bunny lover, these cupcakes are (almost!) too cute to eat. Look for bunny candies in kitchen stores or by special order.


  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut, chopped in food processor
  • Green food coloring
  • 1/2 cup pink decorating sugar
  • 1/2 cup yellow decorating sugar
  • 1/2 cup green decorating sugar
  • 1 16-oz. can vanilla frosting
  • 24 cupcakes, any flavor
  • Bunny candy decorations

How to Make It

  1. Put coconut in a small ziplock bag. Add a few drops of green food coloring and massage coconut in bag until tinted.

  2. Put each decorating sugar in a separate shallow bowl. Spread some vanilla frosting on top of a cupcake and roll edge evenly in a colored sugar. Repeat with remaining cupcakes, frosting and sugars.

  3. Sprinkle a small mound of green coconut atop each frosted cupcake. Arrange bunny decorations in coconut.
