The cutest Easter cupcakes have to be these little bunny bottom cupcakes! Mini chocolate cupcakes topped with a marshmallow and marzipan bunny feet.


White self-raising flour

1 cup(s), (150g)

Cocoa powder

2 tbs

Sweetener, xylitol

¼ cup(s), (50g)


½ cup(s), (125ml)


1 medium

Reduced fat oil spread

60 g, melted

Icing sugar mixture

cup(s), (50g)

Queen Food Colour, Rose Pink

2 ml, (a few drops)

Shredded or desiccated coconut

1½ tbs


15 piece(s), white variety, halved (20g)


115 g, sweetened


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Line three 12-hole (1½ tablespoon/30ml capacity) mini muffin tins with 30 paper cases.
  2. Sift flour and cocoa into a large bowl. Stir in xylitol. Whisk buttermilk, egg and spread in a medium bowl until combined. Add to flour mixture and stir until just combined (do not overmix).
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared cases. Bake for 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centres comes out clean. Set cakes aside in tins for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
  4. Place icing sugar in a medium bowl. Add a few drops of water and pink colouring then stir until smooth (add 1-2 drops at a time so icing is pale pink and firm enough to pipe). Transfer icing to a snap-lock bag. Place coconut in a small bowl.
  5. Using scissors, cut a very small opening in 1 corner of the snap-lock bag. Pipe a small amount of icing onto marshmallows (for the bottoms) to stick them, cut-side down, onto cakes (you only need a little smear). Divide 30g marzipan into 30 tiny balls (for the tails). Brush with a little water and roll in coconut. Stick tails on top of marshmallows with a little more icing.
  6. Divide remaining marzipan into 60 pieces and shape each piece into a paw. Pipe icing onto paws to decorate. Once dry, stick paws to cake with remaining icing. Serve.


TIPS: Add a pinch of nutmeg with cocoa in Step 1. Swap buttermilk for skim milk.
