Bunny cupcakes can be both cute and oh so easy to make. To prove it, I have some Easter bunny cupcakes that you can make in minutes with simple supplies. You may have seen other Easter bunny cupcakes ideas on Pinterest that looked impossible to create. I strive to never do that! These cute bunny cupcakes are simple enough for beginners (or even kids) and cute enough that even an expert will look great when they make them.
