  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place pink paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  2. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for cupcakes, using water, oil and eggs. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Melt white candy melts as directed on package; pour melted candy into squirt bottle. Draw 48 bunny ears on parchment paper with melted white candy. Melt pink candy melts; pour into another squirt bottle. Fill in middle of white ears with pink candy. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm.
  4. Use drop of melted white candy to attach 1 white candy-coated chocolate candy to paper baking cup for bunny tail; hold 30 seconds or until set. Repeat with remaining white candy-coated chocolate candies.
  5. Spread 3 tablespoons frosting on each cupcake top. On front of each cupcake (side opposite the bunny tail), add 2 chocolate chips for eyes, 1 pink candy-coated chocolate candy for nose and 1 red candy heart, turned upside down, for mouth. Insert 3 noodle pieces on each side of nose for whiskers. Gently press 2 ears into top of each cupcake.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Make white bunnies by using white cake mix and white frosting.
If you don’t have squirt bottles for the melted candy, use a resealable food-storage plastic bag and cut off a tiny corner of the bag for piping.
Look for somen noodles in the Asian-foods section of the grocery store, but if you can’t find them, thin spaghetti will work well too.
