Easter Cupcakes

One of our family Easter traditions is making Easter Cupcakes.

I don't have a special recipe for Easter Cupcakes, I just use an ordinary cupcake recipe, except we often put a tiny caramel Easter egg in the middle of the cupcake before baking it. But the fun is in the decorating.

I usually make at least four batches of cupcakes as we give away some as little gifts at Easter. I always make at least two batches of chocolate cupcakes and then 2 of vanilla. The kids (age 5, 7 and 9) love making the Easter Cupcakes and we try to find a different way of decorating one batch of the Easter Cupcakes each year.

Decorating Ideas For Easter Cupcakes:

We always do some chocolate nests using the chocolate cupcakes (these are the ones we put the caramel egg in the middle before baking). We start by spreading a layer of chocolate butter icing on top, and then you spoon icing into a plastic bag or icing bag. You only have a very small hole, so worm like icing squirts out. Then go round and round the cake making a nest with a hole in the middle. Then when the icing has set we pop in different colored baby Easter Eggs. Sometimes foil, sometimes sugared almonds that look like Easter Eggs.

They look stunning and are always our family's favorite Easter Cupcake!

The only limit with decorating the vanilla cupcakes is your imagination. I try to find bright colored or foil cupcake papers and we might match the sprinkles or decorations with the color. We always use butter icing as it tastes so much nicer, and we put on a thick layer of white. Then you can use all sorts of different colored sprinkles, tiny sweets, Jelly beans cut in half look like eggs, or you can cut sweets with scissors and they make jelly shapes. The idea is to have lots of bright colored tops on the Vanilla Easter Cupcakes.

Have fun making your Easter Cupcakes!
