Easter Peeps Cupcakes

Chocolate & Vanilla Cupcakes with Green Piped "Grass" and a Peep on Top

For Easter this year, I decided to make some cute peeps cupcakes. I made a simple batch of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, and used a vanilla bean buttercream.

I tinted the buttercream green and used Wilton tip #233 to pipe grass onto the cupcakes. I made nearly 50 cupcakes, to bring to both family gatherings.... I definitely underestimated the time it would take to pipe grass onto 50 cupcakes!!! My hand was cramping up pretty bad near the end, but it was worth it!

I stuck a toothpick into the bunnies to make them stand up straight.

I actually got some chick peeps, but they are bigger than the bunnies, and didn't look quite right on the cupcakes. I wish I would have gotten some sanding sugar to touch up the marshmallow bunnies. When I pulled them apart from each other, it exposed some of the inner marshmallow. But they still turned out cute!
