Listen, nothing is life is perfect and neither are these Easy Bunny Cupcakes. However, at the end of the day it was about the kids having fun and for me it was about creating memories!
I hate decorating. I like baking, but, when it comes to making things look pretty I have ZERO talent for that. It’s like this. If I’m good at something, it’s fun. If I am HORRIBLE at something, I don’t enjoy it. Now, if I’m learning then….that’s a different story.
But, you see. I have ZERO freakin’ patience. And I’m talking ZERO! ZILCH. NADA. NONE.
So when I’m over on Pinterest pinning my recipes and I see this cute and perfectly decorated cake I’m like yeah, that’s not gonna happen! Instead, I grab the kids and do our best to recreate the idea that I saw. I don’t go back to the website in hopes of making ours look as pretty as theirs. Why? Because again. I have ZERO patience!
Plus, these people are professional. I’m a damn stay at home Mom with three kids, trying to run multiple businesses and keeping them alive by feeding them 48 snacks, cutting up multiple oranges a day and hulling handfuls of strawberries by noon is time consuming!
As we gear up for Spring Break and the boredom that is to follow….I figured I’d grab a few ingredients and let them go to town. Check out our video…in real life folks!
- Box cake mix (any flavor)
- vanilla extract
- 1 bag of powdered sugar
- vegetable oil
- butter flavor shortening
- heavy whipping cream
Alright now, what I need you to do is head on over to my Perfectly Whipped Buttercream Icing Recipe. This will give you the measurements that you need to make THE BEST homemade buttercream icing! You’ll NEVER buy store bought icing again. It’s a beautiful beautiful thing! Trust me.
