    To make ears, cut each large marshmallow crosswise in 4 pieces with kitchen shears. Press 1 side of cut edges into pink sugar, flattening slightly and pinch ends together to make ear shape.

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.
  • To decorate as shown here, you’ll need 24 heart-shaped candy decors and 48 candy eyeballs.
  • Get your little bakers in on the fun. Once cupcakes are cooled and frosted, have them decorate the bunny faces to their liking!
