Super Easy, Super Fast Bunny Cupcakes

Do you need a fast Easter treat but don't want to cook?  Ya, me too - so here's what I did.

Step 1 - Gather your supplies.  You will need:
Pre-made, pre-frosted cupcakes  (I bought mine from Wally-world as I had no desire to bake today.)  Jelly beans, mini chocolate chips, toothpicks and...

White card stock, pink or spring like papers, scissors, tape and a glue stick (not shown)

Step 2 - With the white card stock, cut out some ears.  I did this super quick.  Can you tell?  They aren't perfect or even but I kind of like them that way.  Then cut out the pink or pattern paper just a little smaller than the white ears.  See the photo above for reference.

Step 3:  Glue the two pieces of paper together. 

Step 4:  Attach a tooth pick to the back of each ear.  

Step 5:  Using a pen, add a little outline to each of the papers on the inner ear.  You don't have to do this, I just did it because I like the definition it gave them.  If you have an ink pad, you could ink them before you glue them in place, too.

Step 6:  Stick the toothpick ears into the little cupcakes.  Push them into place until the base of the ears touch the frosting.  Also, make sure you add the ears towards the back of the cakes so you leave room for their faces.

Step 7:  Next, add a jelly bean nose and two little mini chocolate chips for the eyes. 

And there you have it, simple, cute, little treats that look like you made them from scratch - only you didn't.  (Shhh!  Don't tell, I know I won't!)
