    To make bunnies: Cut large marshmallow in half with kitchen scissors (dip scissors into water before each cut to minimize sticking). On cut side of marshmallow, place candy decorations for eyes, nose and whiskers. On other half of unused marshmallow, cut along top edge of marshmallow, creating a wedge. This will be one ear. Repeat for other ear. Sprinkle with pink sugar. Stick ears on top of bunny head with frosting. Place bunny on coconut nest. Place 2 miniature marshmallows in front of bunny for paws, and one behind for tail, using frosting to adhere.
