To finish off

Smooth a little icing over the top of each cake. Fill our icing bag (don’t use the nozzle) and snip off along the dotted line.

Pipe a large blob of icing on each cupcake for the face. Prepare the ears as illustrated (one marshmallow will give 2 pairs of ears) dip the cut sides into sprinkles and insert a toothpick. Position ears. Cut liquorice whiskers and trim the ends of dog bones to use for bunny teeth. Position eyes and nose. Enjoy!
