Easter Bunny Bum Cupcake Recipe

In anticipation of Easter, Dr. Oetker’s giant chocolate Bunny Bum installation brought a smile to commuter’s faces in London’s Potters Fields Park today. Passers-by were astounded as they saw a giant Bunny’s Bum burrowing into the grass, showing its perfectly round tail and eight foot ears. Crafted by expert baker Juliet Sear, the entirely edible seven foot tall Bunny Bum took over 110 hours to create using more than 3,000 bars / 450kg of Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks’ Chocolate.

Strange goings on were afoot in London and Manchester last week when a 7ft giant Bunny Bum appeared overnight, much to the delight of commuters and passers-by. The super-sized Bunny Bum could be seen burrowing into the grass and was the source of a lot of smiles and selfies. The entirely edible Bunny Bum was the brainchild of Dr. Oetker and expert baker Julie Sears who wanted to step outside of the norm for Easter and bring a smile to people’s faces. The Bum took over a staggering 110 hours to create and over 3,000 bars of Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks Chocolate. The end result is spectacular and not something you see every day.

If you didn’t get the opportunity to see the creation for yourself, never fear. Why not make these super cute mini versions and create some tasty Bunny Bum Cupcakes to enjoy this Easter.

Easter Bunny Bum Cupcake Recipe

I was challenged by Dr. Oetker to re-create the super cute cupcakes using their recipe, but also to add my own twist. The recipe was really easy to follow and there’s lots that little ones can get involved with too, including moulding the chocolate and helping to measure & mix.

The little twist I decided to add was to put a mini caramel chocolate egg in the centre of each cupcake to create a delicious gooey centre. I also added some crushed up Oreos to the top of the cake to resemble mud and made a half eaten carrot. If you’re looking for something to do with the kids this half term I would definitely recommend giving these a try.

If you want to get creative in the kitchen and make your own Bunny Bum Cupcakes for Easter I have posted the easy to follow recipe by Dr. Oekter below. Why not give it a little twist like I did and change the flavour, add some sprinkles!
