Frost cupcakes with remaining vanilla frosting.
Roll tops of frosted cupcakes in coconut to coat well.
Put pink sugar in a small bowl. Using scissors, cut large marshmallows in half crosswise.
Press cut sides of marshmallows into pink sugar, coat evenly to make ears.
Insert a pretzel stick into 1 short end of a marshmallow ear.
Insert remaining part of pretzel-stick into cupcake to let ear stand up.
Repeat with another pretzel stick and marshmallow ear, place second marshmallow ear next to first.
Repeat with remaining marshmallows and pretzels, until every bunny has two ears.
