Fun Rabbit Themed Easter Cupcakes

As an avid gardener, Rabbit was forever working hard to protect the vegetables he raised from the bugs and crows. And though few things made him grumpier than when someone tried to steal his carrots, he could never be accused of refusing to share his lunch — even with an uninvited guest. Topped with miniature candy carrots, these holiday cupcakes make the perfect treat for Rabbit to serve a silly old bear, or any other resident of the Hundred Acre Wood, that might happen to stop by at lunchtime on Easter day. Even Winnie the Pooh is bound to find them as tempting — well, almost as tempting — as honey.

Directions

  1. With clean hands, knead each candy and roll it into a mini carrot shape. If the candy is too stiff, you can microwave it for 4 or 5 seconds. But don’t overdo it — the candy will melt if it’s overheated.

2. Use the skewer or toothpick to make a hole about 1/4-inch deep in the top of each carrot.

3. Cut 1 1/2-inch lengths from a licorice piece and then snip them in half vertically. Turn each half into a leafy top by cutting fringe in one end.

4. Insert the carrot tops into the holes in the carrots. If they don’t fit, try trimming the bases a bit to taper them. Or use the skewer tip to gently push them in place.

5.  When all the carrots are made (you’ll want 2 or 3 per cupcake), frost the cupcakes and sprinkle the centers with cinnamon sugar to resemble a patch of sandy soil.

6.  “Plant” the carrots in the cupcakes, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the orange candy showing.

Enjoy these delicious treats this Easter season.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
