Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow or white cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs or egg whites called for on cake mix box
Pink food color
2
containers Betty Crocker™ Whipped fluffy white frosting
5
large marshmallows
Pink sugar
Candy decorations and sprinkles, as desired

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 2 Stir a few drops pink food color into 1 container of frosting. Frost cupcakes with pink frosting.
  • 3 Spoon 1 heaping teaspoonful white frosting on center of each cupcake. To make ears, cut each large marshmallow crosswise into 5 pieces with kitchen scissors. Using scissors, cut through center of each marshmallow piece to within 1/4 inch of edge. Separate to look like bunny ears; press 1 side of cut edges into pink sugar, flattening slightly. Arrange on each of the white frosting mounds as shown. Use candy decorations and sprinkles to make eyes, nose and whiskers as shown. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
