Easter Pink Bunny Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes long before I ever had this blog.  I took this using my I-Phone and didn't care about lighting or anything.  Since it is almost Easter, I thought it would be fun to share these with you.  I took these to my Families Easter Barbeque and they were a huge hit with my little nieces.  I tried to find a better picture of these for you around the internet, but I had no such luck, but I did find some other cute cupcake ideas:

Easter Bunny Cupcakes Recipe

Here's how to make Pink Bunny Cupcakes:
From: Woman's World Magazine April 2009 Issue

- 8 cupcakes, any flavor.  I recommend My Favorite Box Mix Recipe.  It will make a lot more than 8 cupcakes, but you could just frost the extra with cute pastel Easter colors.  
- Tint vanilla frosting (store bought or homemade) with pink food coloring
- Transfer to a large pastry bag (or zip-lock) fitted with a small star tip
- Starting at edge, pipe frosting over each of 8 cupcakes, building up in the center (so when you put his "face" on it is slightly raised above the rest of the cake).
- Using kitchen scissors, snip 1/4'' off each flat end of 16 large marshmallows; pinch top to make pointed "ear"
- Press 1 red Swedish fish, textured side down, onto 1 cut side of each marshmallow "ear"
- Insert two "ears" into top edge of each cupcake
- For "cheeks," use flattened mini marshmallows
- For "eyes," use brown mini M&M's
- For "noses" and "mouths," use Jelly Belly Petite Sour Hearts candies 
- For "whiskers," use 1 1/2'' long pieces red Twizzlers Pull-n-Peel candy
