I’m happy to say that the second episode of mine and Nina James’ YouTube series Tastes Like Nice is out and it’s all about Easy To Make Bunny Cupcakes, which really are easy to make not to mention really fun!
I love making these with her because she really gets to play around with the decorations and often, in the end, we get a mix of the funniest, but best looking ‘bunny’ cupcakes that look like they belong to the craziest crew on the block! This recipe which doesn’t require that much admin or ingredients yields some pretty tasty vanilla cupcakes that have been flop proof every time I’ve whipped them up, so don’t worry about coming out with average cake (some vanilla cupcakes can be so average). The icing I use is a pretty standard butter cream icing, but if you don’t feel like it, you could always replace it with a yummy marshmallow frosting.
Ok so here is episode two, once again I’d love to hear any feedback, obviously, we are still very new at this whole videoing thing and slowly but surely we’re learning what works and what doesn’t but I’d love to hear from you guys too. I’d also LOVE to hear if you try this recipe out or the Rice Krispie one from our first episode.
