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.
