Easter Cupcakes...

I have made these cupcakes a couple of times and they are always a hit. They are a lot easier than they look. I don't have an exact recipe, I got the idea from a magazine several years back but basically this is what you will need:

Jumbo cupcakes, this is what is used for the body. I baked them in the Jumbo muffin tins
Donut holes, for the head
Coconut, dye 1/3 of it yellow in a ziploc bag with a couple drops of yellow food color
Yellow food color (for the coconut)
Mini M&M's for the eyes and bell on lambs colar
Rope Licorice for colar of lamb and feet and comb of chick
Runts, for the nose and mouth of bunny and chick
Tootsie Rolls, roll in hand to warm and mold to make face of lamb, cut another one in half for feet
Marshmallows cut in half for hands and feet of bunny and cut in quarters for the ears of lamb
White paper, just cut in the shape of ears and stick in the bunny head (it would probably be cute to color a portion of the inside of the ears pink)

Attach the head to the body with frosting (a toothpick can be added to secure it). Frost the outside and add the coconut. Embellish as shown in photo. Have fun!
