Easter Bunny Bum Oreo Cupcakes

So here is my second instalment of Easter fun in the kitchen. I’ve geared these more to the boys as my last cupcakes were so girly but to be quite honest they will suit boys and girls alike.

Malia fell in love with my pinterest inspiration and was adamant that she was helping out. So let me introduce you to the elder of my two girls. At 6 years old this little miss is strong, sweet, sensitive, kind and robust all in one. (Yes Malia and Lani are 12 months apart- crazy I know, the first two years were a haze I tell you!). She loves all things creative and helping make these adorable cupcakes was perfect for her. I love seeing all the Easter inspiration out there – so many cute ideas it is hard to choose which one to do. These can be altered to suit in lots of different ways. Make them into chocolate cupcakes by adding cocoa powder, or add choc chips instead of oreo’s and grate chocolate for the ‘soil’.

So enjoy the weekend all. Have fun with your family and friends and I hope you get a chance to try out these Easter Bunny Bum Oreo Cupcakes!

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS: 

For the cupcakes:

3/4 Cup unsalted butter, softened

3/4 Cup caster sugar

1 1/4 Cup self-raising flour

3 eggs

1 Tsp vanilla extract

12 Oreo Cookies

For the vanilla buttercream:

3/4 Cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 icing sugar, sifted

1 Tsp vanilla extract

2 Tsp hot water

4 Oreo Cookies, cream filling removed and cookies crushed

For the Bunny Bums

12 large marshmallows, cut the corners off so it is rounder

3/4 Cup White choc melts

1 Drop Pink food colouring

3/4 Cup Desiccated Coconut

METHOD:

  1. Line a 12 section bun tray with paper cases. Preheat the oven to 180 C
  2. Put the butter, caster sugar, flour, eggs and vanilla extract into a bowl and beat with an electric beater for 1-2 minutes until creamy.
  3. Place one spoonful of cake batter into the bottom of all the paper cases. Then place one oreo cookie on top. Divide the remaining cake mixture evenly among the cases on top of the oreo cookie.
  4. Bake in the oven for 18-20 mins until risen and just firm to the touch.
  5. Transfer to a wire rack to cool
  6. Now to make the butter cream. Put the butter and icing sugar in a bowl and beat well with an electric beater until smooth and creamy.
  7.  Add the vanilla extract and hot water and beat again until smooth.
  8. Pipe desired amount onto separate cupcakes.
  1. Sprinkle the crushed oreo cookies onto the buttercream until it is all covered and set to one side

10. To make the bunny bums and feet– melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.

11. Transfer two tablespoons of white choc into a separate bowl and add a tiny amount of the food colouring to colour the chocolate a gentle pink and set aside. (If the choc has hardened when it comes to using it then microwave for 10 secs until soft again)

12. With the melted white chocolate use a teaspoon and drizzle oval shapes on baking paper in the shape of feet. Allow to harden. (Make x 24 feet for x 12 cupcakes).

13. With the pink coloured chocolate use the teaspoon to drizzle on top of the bunny feet to make the pads and toes. (Tip use a skewer for the toes as it can get quite small). Allow to harden.

14. For the Bunny bodies – dip marshmallows in the white chocolate until coated and instantly coat with desiccated coconut and set onto baking paper to harden.

15. For the Bunny tails- add white choc and desiccated coconut together so it is thick and malleable and roll into balls and set aside to harden.

16. Now here’s the fun part in assembling. (Use the melted choc as the glue). Place the bunny body on the cupcake, then ‘glue’ the tail on the body using melted chocolate and lastly place two little feet.

And there you have it – cupcakes that will make you like a rockstar in your children eyes!
