Supplies Needed to make Easy Bunny Cupcakes

Tutorial – How to Make Icing Look Like Grass

In a large bowl, add a few drops of food coloring to your vanilla icing.

​Fit the piping bag with a coupler and grass tip.

Fill the bag halfway with green icing.

Hold the piping above the center of each cupcake, straight up and down and lightly touch the surface of the cupcake.

Lift up as you very quickly squeeze.

Stop squeezing and pull the piping bag up.

Continue this process all the way around the top of the cupcake, squeezing and stopping creating the illusion of grass on top of each cupcake.

If only adding the sprinkles to the adorable cupcakes, do it immediately. Once the icing dries the sprinkles won’t stick.

Somethings to keep in mind while making your Sweet Bunny Cupcakes:

  • Gel food coloring is preferred over liquid because liquid color will change the consistency of the buttercream icing, where the gel color will not.
  • Store bought buttercream and store bought icing are NOT the same. Buttercream is stiffer than icing and is the recommended option for cake and cupcake decorating.
  • If you have hot hands, meaning while you are holding the piping bag the icing begins to “break” (the color looks distorted) inside the bag, place it in the fridge for 5 mins to stiffen back up and rub some ice on your hands to keep them cool.
  • Store leftover cupcakes 3-5 days in an airtight container
