Bunny Cupcakes

I found these adorable cupcakes! I thought they were perfect for Easter! They were actually really simple to make! I found these cute Bunny Cupcakes on Betty Crocker's site. I just used a white cake mix to make the cupcakes and then I used some little circle and flower "sprinkles" for the eyes and nose and then added some whiskers by using a small zip lock baggie, I just filled it with black frosting and then cut a tiny hole in a corner so I could just squeeze out small thin lines. Here's the recipe I used for the frosting

Thick Vanilla Frosting
1 cup shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
4 tablespoons milk

Beat together shortening and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add 2 cups of powdered sugar a bit at a time while beating. Then add 2 tablespoons milk. Slowly add in the rest of the powdered sugar and the rest of the milk until you get the right thickness for your frosting.
