When I Grow Up...

On Monday Dorothy, our Executive Pastry Chef and I had a great opportunity to do a demonstration at a local preschool.  There were 24 four and five year olds that couldn't have been better students.  With Spring upon us and Easter just a few days away we thought it would be nice to demonstrate "Bunny Grass Patch Cupcakes."  It was a simple project that helped utilize the fine motor skills these little minds are learning to master in their early education. 

Here is what you will need...

  • Cupcake mix
  • Whipped Icing (white or brown)
  • green food coloring
  • coconut
  • Nestle egg shaped chocolates
  • Black decorating gel
  • Sprinkles (not sugar sprinkles as you will need to use one of these for each eye)
  • Mini tootsie rolls
  • Large spoon
  • Small knife or cutting utensil
  • Jelly beans


  • Bake & cool your favorite cupcake (we made confetti cupcakes)
  • Frost with whipped icing


  • In a small bag mix in a few drops of green food coloring with coconut.  Shake until the coconut is green throughout.
  • Sprinkle to coconut on the frosting leaving a bare spot in center of the cupcake for the bunny!
  • Unwrap one Nestle egg shaped chocolate (this will be the body of the bunny)
  • Use the decorating gel to make the nose and mouth of the bunny on the pointy end of the chocolate
  • Place a small dot of icing where the eyes should be placed and attach a small round sprinkle for each eye
  • Place chocolate bunny on center of the cupcake with nose pointing up
  • Take 2 tootsie rolls and flatten using a large spoon
  • Ask an adult to help you cut out an ear shape
  • Attach ears to back of bunny
  • Place jelly beans on the grass
