Cupcakes

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup pastel-colored decorator sprinkles

Frosting

1/2 cup marshmallow crème
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Line cupcake pans with 24 paper cupcake liners.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl; set aside.

Combine sugar, butter and almond extract in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating at low speed after each addition until well mixed. Add egg whites. Beat at high speed 2 minutes. Stir in decorator sprinkles.

Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

To form bunnies, place 1 marshmallow on its side in center of each cupcake. Cut another marshmallow in half; place 1 piece, cut-side down, for head and 1 piece, cut-side down, for tail. Place 2 licorice candies on either side of head for ears. Store refrigerated.
