  • 1 package (18.25 ounces) strawberry cake mix
  • 1 container (16 oz.) ready-to-spread white frosting
  • Pink fondant
  • White fondant
  • Black food coloring
  • Small paint brush
  • Zipper bag or Decorating tip #2


Step 1

PREHEAT oven to 350°F.

Step 2

PLACE Reynolds® StayBrite® Baking Cups (Dots) in muffin pans; set aside.

Step 3

PREPARE cake mix following package directions for 24 cupcakes. Spoon batter into baking cups.

Step 4

BAKE following package directions (18 to 22 minutes). Cool.

Step 5

SPREAD thin layer of frosting on each cupcake; set aside.

Step 6

DIVIDE remaining frosting evenly into two bowls. Leave one bowl white, tint the other bowl black.

Step 7

ROLL OUT pink fondant for bunny heads. Cut round shapes the same size as top of cupcake. Place fondant circles on top of cupcakes.

Step 8


Step 9

Roll pink fondant into one oval shaped ball about 1/8" wide x 1/4" long.

Step 10

Use paintbrush to brush one side lightly with water and attach to center of cupcake. This will be the nose.

Step 11

Roll white fondant into two thin stips about 1/2" square. Place these teeth on the head, about 1/4" below nose.

Step 12

Roll pink fondant into two egg-shaped balls that will form the cheeks.

Step 13

Use a wooden toothpick or skewer to make the small indentions that give the cheeks dimension.

Step 14

Brush back-sides lightly with water and attach at 45 degree angles just below the nose and on top of the upper part of the teeth.

Step 15

For ears, roll out pink fondant and cut into slightly rounded, ear-shaped triangles. Bend their tops slightly forward to give them shape. Let dry.

Step 16

Brush water lightly on back of the bottom edge of ears to attach.

Step 17

Prepare piping bags with white and black frosting. If using a zipper bag, be sure to snip just a tiny corner off the bag so that the lines are delicate.

Step 18

Use white frosting to pipe two small circles for eyes and three straight lines on each side of the nose for whiskers.

Step 19

Pipe black icing onto centers of eyes and eyebrows.
