Easter Bunny Cupcakes

Marshmallow Bunny and Easter Egg Cupcakes
Chocolate Rabbit and Easter Egg Cupcakes
Easter Candy for Decorating the Cupcakes
L to R from top left:
 Easter Sixlets candy, marshmallow bunnies, speckled bird egg jelly beans, and small, foil wrapped, chocolate rabbits.
Step 1 - Bake 24 cupcakes according to the package directions and cool.
Step 2 - Put the cool cupcakes into clear plastic party cups
Cooled cupcakes in party cups ready to frost. 
Step 3 - Using a 1M decorating tip and frosting in leaf green and sky blue, make overlapping stars to resemble grass.
Step 4 - Insert toothpicks as shown in the pictures below and place the rabbits into the center of each frosted cupcake. I had to use a small jeweler's screwdriver to poke a hole through the plastic wrapper so I could insert the toothpick into the candy rabbit. 
Step 5 - Place 3 jelly beans and 3-4 Sixlet candies around each candy bunny.
Step 6 - Place each cupcake into an Easter treat bag and tie the top closed with curling ribbon. I used an iridescent baby blue ribbon that I found at the local dollar store.
