Peter Rabbit Cupcakes

Peter Rabbit

Now I absolutely adore the Beatrix Potter tale of Peter Rabbit – a story about a mischievous rabbit in blue peabody coat. It has one main drawcard – I love bunnies so much, and a bunny in a blue coat? Brilliant!

Being a big Peter Rabbit fan I absolutely fell for these amazing Peter Rabbit party products by Meri Meri and I decided to buy one of the Peter Rabbit wheelbarrow cupcake cases. Now it was always my plan to save these for a special occasion, but since I’m not likely to be hosting a Peter Rabbit themed baby shower for my first child any time soon, I thought I would get in that new kitchen of mine and bake up a Peter Rabbit storm. The good thing about the wheelbarrows? They’re reusable! And the Peter Rabbit cupcakes cases can be re-purchased from Meri Meri or you can just use an alternative blue casing. All set!

My cupcake method was taken from


  • 200g butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 cups (370g) caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups (405g) self-raising flour
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 24 1/3 cup (80ml) muffin pans with patty cases.

  2. Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla essence with an electric mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until just combined. Add the flour and milk in alternate batches and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  3. Spoon mixture evenly among the patty cases. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. Once cooled, create a delicious frosting to go over the top. I used Philadelphia Lemon Frosting for these baby shower cupcakes!

Put it in the wheelbarrow, set it out and hey presto! Instant cupcakes that are just perfect for a baby shower.
