First Bake Sale of 2011 - Year of the Rabbit

It's nearly time to celebrate Chinese New Year, so I thought I'd mark the occasion with some bunny rabbit cupakes....the cakes are vanilla with a marshmallow centre (recipe courtesy of Hummingbird) and I topped it with vanilla butter cream frosting and some dessicated coconut before adding marshmallows and other sweets to make the rabbit faces. The whiskers are harder to do than they look - thanks to Hal for his help with those!

The other cupcakes are supposedly 'healthier' than your average cupcake as they're made with polenta and super food blueberries! The recipe for these comes from Primrose Bakery and another shout out goes to Hal for decorating them with the blueberries and icing sugar on top.
