How to Make Easter Cupcakes using Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves

Lets Hop right into Easter with some fun Easter Bunny & Easter Basket Cupcakes using Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves. So EASY to make and so Dang Adorable !!! Let me show you how it is done.

These Easter Cupcakes were created using Roundabouts Bunnycakes Cupcake Sleeves and Roundabouts A Tisket, A Tasket Cupcake Sleeves . If you are not familiar with Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves I will tell you a little about them. They are Self Adhesive Cupcake Wraps that wrap around your Cupcake. They are so simple to use and bring that something extra special to your Cupcake. There are tons of designs available to choose from. Just Wrap It, Top It and Go….

These were so much fun to create and you can do it anyway you like, but I am going to show you how I made mine to give you some inspiration. I think they look so cute and what a perfect treat for the kids for an Easter Party, Easter Classroom Treat, Easter Dessert or a Bunny Party.

Here is what I used to create the Bunny Cupcakes:

  • Cupcakes of course – I used Vanilla, but any flavor would work
  • Vanilla Frosting – Chocolate would work too
  • Bunnycakes Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves
  • Vanilla Chocolate Wafers
  • Pink Sugar Crystals
  • Make n Mold Fine Point Decorating Bottle (Explained Below)
  • Wax Paper
  • Toothpicks

So here are my main ingredients ready to go. The Make n Mold Decorating Bottles are just a plastic bottle I purchased at the Craft Store and they are used for Decorating with Melted Chocolate.  All you do is fill it up with the Chocolate Melting Wafers and Microwave it on 50% Power until the Chocolate Melts. Then you just add the Tip back on and you are ready for business.  This is being used for the Bunny’s Ears – I wanted them to be made of chocolate – mmmmm.

For the Bunny Cupcakes ears I decided to do them in chocolate, but you can use Cookies, Cut them out from Paper or anything else you like. For the Chocolate Ears this is what I did;  I created a Template by drawing out some good sized ears on paper, then I covered that with Wax Paper and placed that on my clipboard. I melted my Vanilla Chocolate Wafers in my bottle and then filled in my Bunny Ears following my outline on top of the Wax paper. I then inserted a Toothpick and covered it up with more Chocolate. I stuck them into the freezer to harden for about 5 minutes. When that was done I went back and created the Middles of the Ears with another layer of Melted Chocolate and while that was still wet I took my Pink Sugar Crystals and sprinkled them on to cover it. I stuck them back into the freezer for about 5 minutes to harden. So EASY !!

Next I frosted my baked Cupcakes and then wrapped them with the Roundabouts Bunnycakes Cupcake Sleeves. I carefully removed my Bunny Ears from the wax paper and inserted them into my Cupcakes. That is it – then my Sweet Bunny Cupcakes were born – How cute are they? Now onto the Easter Basket Cupcakes…

Here is what I used to create the Easter Basket Cupcakes:

Now here are my main ingredients for my Easter Basket Cupcakes. Once again you can use anything to create these, but I am going to show what I used for mine.

First I colored my Vanilla Frosting Green using some Green Food Coloring and frosted my Cupcakes. Then I wrapped them with the Roundabouts A Tisket, A Tasket Cupcake Sleeves. Then I took my Chocolate Licorice and placed a Toothpick into each end – you can stick them directly into the cupcake without a toothpick, but it is more secure with the Toothpick. Just be sure to warn the kids to take them out before eating them. Then I simply placed the Licorice into the cupcake to create my Basket handle.

Next I took some of the Edible Green Easter Grass and placed it on top of the Cupcake and added some Misc. Easter Candies to finish off my Baskets. Then came out so cute and it is all edible – yum yum yum.

So what do ya think? I think you need to Hop to it and order your Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves and make some for your the kids !! You can order them from my main website HERE.
