what other treats can i turn into bunny butts?

For some reason bunny butts are adorable. There’s something about the fluffy white butt that makes everything festive and cute. If you would rather make a cake or cupcakes, you can also turn them into cute bunny butts. Start with a round cake, and use a cupcake for the bunny’s tail and decorate it the same way you decorated the cookies.

Sugar Cookies are a great cookie to make into a fun Easter Treat like our Bunny Butt Cookies.

If you like to food prep, you can make the sugar cookie dough first and cut out the shapes ahead of time. Place the raw cookie dough shapes in between a couple pieces of parchment paper and into a freezer bag. Remove the air from the freezer bag and freeze the cookie dough shapes. When it’s time to make the cookies, remove the parchment paper sheets from the freezer, transfer them to a baking pan, and bake.
