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.


Makes 24


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


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.
