Bunny Butt Cupcakes

bpicture-024

Unfortunately, I cannot take creative credit for these too-cute cupcakes.  These “Rabbit Hole” cupcakes are featured in the cookbook, Hello, Cupcake! which I picked up recently and have since fallen in love with.  With cupcakes ranging from fish bowls, to sunflowers, to corn on the cob, authors Karen Tack & Alan Richardson have it all covered in this book.  With the idea that all the cupcakes can be made by the home chef, using equipment and tools on hand, Track & Richardson display true creativity.

With a family Easter gathering on the horizon, I knew exactly what I would make.  I have been waiting for an occasion worthy of these playful cupcakes.  I did make this batch myself, following most of the directions, but of course, tweaking it a bit.  When all the cupcakes are lined up together, hopefully it looks as if these bunnies are scurrying back into their holes, with only their fluffy tales left in sight.  I will be honest that piping all the grass on each cupcake was quite a lot of work, so be warned that these treats are time consuming.

Check out Hello, Cupcake! at Amazon.com

  1. Very cute. What did you use to make the feet and tail?

     
  2. I would also like to know what the feet and tail are made out of . Also where can I buy the book. Thank you

     
  3. I made the feet out of royal icing – but I believe the book suggests that you use white circus peanuts… However, not only do I not like the original orange variety, I could not find white circus peanuts. (The book is fantastic, but they do, at times, call for some crazy seemingly impossible to find ingredients.) If I was to make them again, I would cut the feet from rolled out gum paste – the royal icing was much too fragile. For the tails, I piped royal icing out of a grass tip, circling it around on itself to make a small ball.

    As for where you can purchase the book; it is available in most major bookstores, as well as on-line. I included a link to it’s page on amazon.com in the original post.

     
  4. I was just wondering…do you just leave the bottom of the bunny blank…no icing?
