     If you are looking for a cute and fun way to decorate cupcakes, you have come to the right place. These bunnies are so simple to make too, so you don’t have to worry if you don’t have expert level decorating skills. They are perfect for Easter, baby showers or even birthday parties so whip some up the next chance you get!

     Little Dude and I have been having a lot of fun filming some cooking videos together. I thought it would be a fun way to show you some simple recipes that kids could easily help with.

     He thought it would be a great time to make his directorial debut. The first couple of videos I took the lead.

     I kind of explained what we would do, then we’d do it. Now he helps plan what we’re going to make.

      He helps decide what each scene should include. Sometimes he even gets me out of it altogether, like when he was making egg noodles.

      Then he sits at the computer and helps edit the video together. We aren’t very sophisticated, but we have fun!

      Originally we were just going to post these cupcakes on our YouTube channel and call it a day. But they are so cute, so I wanted to make sure and show them to you as well.

     All you need is a batch of your favorite cupcakes. We used buttery vanilla cupcakes this time.

       Semi-homemade white cupcakes would be perfect for a larger gathering. It starts with a mix, but makes super fabulous cupcakes.

        We used white chocolate buttercream for this particular batch. I think marshmallow fluff frosting would be a great option as well. Really any semi-sturdy white frosting will do.

       Then you just need marshmallows and pink sanding sugar. That’s it!

        You can watch Little Dude and I make them on YouTube. If you like the video or subscribe to the channel while you’re there you would make one little boy extra happy.

      I hope you have a very happy Easter if you celebrate! Enjoy the cupcakes.  💕
