To make Momma's Bunnies:
1 large marshmallow
scissors (spray with a little bit of non-stick spray, such as Pam)
pink crepe paper (i don't use this anymore - too much trouble to remove before eating!)
Cut the marshmallow about 1/3 down from the top. DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH!!!
Fold the cut edge until it stands up. This makes the face/head.
Where the marshmallow bends, either make a tiny cut or pinch a tiny gash and press the "face"onto the raw, sticky gash. The head is now standing up a bit.
With the scissors, cut a V into the top of the face...just a short way down. This makes the ears.
Use the little cut piece to make the tail...press it onto the "butt".
Make little pink eyes and nose with the frosting. (Put a little frosting on the backs of the ears if desired.)
Frost a cupcake with Chocolate frosting (it's the dirt)...or any flavor you wish. Place the "bunny" into the frosting. Sprinkle a little coconut (tinted a light green) around the bunny. Press a few jelly beans (eggs) into the soft frosting. Let stand for a little while so the bunny and eggs have a chance to stick. Enjoy!
After years and years of making these special Easter Bunnies for all of us...and our kids...Mom has continued the tradition, by making these adorable treats for all of her friends at her retirement residence. She is now 91 years old! Since she moved into the residence, she has baked cookies, put them in little bags, and passes them out to all of her friends. She is called "The Cookie Lady". However, at Easter, she makes these cupcakes for all...and her name changes to
"The Easter Bunny Lady".Wishing all of you a Blessed Easter.
HE IS RISEN INDEED!
