When I see peeps they just make me happy and I know Easter is near. I will be honest here, I am not a fan of eatting them but they are just so darn cute I love using them. Making these Easter Cupcakes was so fun, if you like peeps then your decorations are edible. When I made these cupcakes I used the combination of my Lemon Cupcake and my Strawberry Frosting. The combination of the two flavors is very spring like and yummy. I decided to fill these with a marshmallow filling , this is optional but so much fun when you bite into these cupcakes.
So once you have baked your cupcakes , made the frosting and filling it is time to get started. I know it’s a lot of mixing but the end result is fun. This is the perfect recipe to share with your kids. I used a large icing tip to cut out the center of the cupcake . This worked great but you can also use a small pairing knife.
Fill the cupcakes with the marshmallow filling. This is sticky so be careful and there might be a little bit leftover.
Top the cupcake with a little mound of frosting for the bunny to sit on .I used a very large open star tip but feel free to use your favorite.
Break apart the bunny peeps and place a toothpick in the bottom of a peep.
Place the peep on top of the mound of frosting.
Scatter a few jelly beans around the bottom of the peep.
Now watch with joy when your family and friends get the marshmallow surprise in the center.
