  • 12 Frosted cupcakes can mix vanilla or chocolate
  • 6 R.M. Palmer Hoppy Bunnies
  • 6 R.M. Palmer Gold Foiled Eggs.
  • 6 R.M. Parsnip Pete's Bunny Treats
  • 1 tbsp Easter Sprinkles


  • Unpackage cupcakes and set them on a flat surface to decorate.
  • Add edible Easter grass to some of the cupcakes following a circular pattern to form a nest-like look. I decided to add grass to just 3 of them.
  • Affix candy foil eggs to the cupcakes with the grass. I added 3 because that seemed like a visually appealing number.
  • Affix candy bunnies and characters to cupcakes. We used R.M. Hoppy Bunnies and Gold Foiled Eggs. We also used (foiled chocolate-flavored candies).
  • Finish cupcakes with sprinkles if desired. We used Wilton Easter mix.
  • Add finished cupcakes to a bakery box until ready to serve. *If frosting is perishable, store in the fridge.
