Every year we have a Spring/Easter Party with the kids just for fun. They are only little for so long and it is a fun way to celebrate! Having fun treats around is totally necessary when having a party with kids. I knew I was going to make cupcakes, but I wanted them to be exciting! That is when I decided to make these cute Carrot Patch Cupcakes!
I found these Great Bakery Crafts Bunny Tail Icing Decorations on the Easter Aisle at Walmart! They used to have them on Amazon but I don’t see them now. These Bottoms Up Bunny Cupcake Decorations are pretty similar!
I whipped up a batch of Carrot Cake Cupcakes and iced them with green icing. I may have cheated and used store bought. 😉 Nobody will know the difference. I then dyed some shredded coconut with green food coloring to look like grass and sprinkled it on the cupcakes. I topped it with a bunny tail and some candy carrots I found in my sprinkle box! They turned out perfectly!
