I am a recent college graduate who is searching for employment while living at home. With the help of my trusty slow cooker, I have taken over my mother's kitchen and have claimed myself to be the chef of the house. Bon apetit!
Happy Mother’s Day to all moms!
I made these rabbit-in-the-garden cupcakes for my mother. The inspiration for the rabbit holes comes from Karen Tack and Alan Richardson’s Hello, Cupcake! One taste tester actually said my cupcakes lacked originality, but I thought they were the perfect reminder of the lovely spring weather we had this weekend.
I made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting. For the bunny faces, I used mini M&Ms for the ears and nose, black gel for the whiskers, red gel for the mouth, and halved tootsie rolls for the ears. For the grass, I dyed some of the frosting green and used a Wilton frosting tip for the special texture. For the rabbit holes, I used crushed oreos for the fur, a mini marshmallow for the cottontail, halved tootsie rolls for the feet, and black gel for the toes and sole. For the sunflowers, I used crushed oreos for the center and cut a triangle in a Ziploc bag to shape the petals.
