Bunny Cupcakes

18 Apr

I really wanted to make some cute bunny cupcakes with the boys.  I came across a picture on the web of a bunny made out of donuts and thought “ah, we can modify that and put it on a cupcake”… Well, it wasn’t that easy!  I debated even posting the idea here and then remembered that with children the process is what is fun, not always the product…  So although the product wasn’t everything I dreamed it to be, the process was pretty fun for my boys!  My 5 year old made the one pictured above and what made it so challenging was getting it to stay on the cupcake.  I cut the donuts for him an then gave him toothpicks and frosting as glue. The ears are held on with toothpicks and everything else is glued on with frosting.  He had no problem creating his idea of what a bunny looked like….  This little bunny lasted for about 5 minutes and not because we gobbled him up, either!  The donuts just kept tipping over.  Finally I took a toothpick and stabbed one end in the back of the donut and the other into the cupcake, and it held!  Well, it held until he decided he should eat it.  Then I had to take the toothpicks out so he could enjoy his creation!  All in all I’d give this project a B.  The boys enjoyed making them (they were a bit of a pain for mom), and eating them was pretty fun too! I’m not sure I’d venture into making these by the dozen for my guests, however!   Not the healthiest of alternatives for a treat either, but fun just the same!  I’ll have to work on a healthy bunny this week!  If you decide to make these, just keep telling yourself; process not product, process not product….
