Easter Cupcakes

Here are some adorable cupcake ideas for Easter. These cupcakes are super easy to make and will be a hit at your gathering!

I enjoy making cupcakes for the holidays rather than a cake for simplicity. No need to cut slices or have plates and fork for each person and best of all, less dishes to clean up!

Nothing too complicated with the vanilla cupcake recipe, frosting or decorations and no need for a piping bag or any special equipment.

For the Easter chicks, I used coconut flakes with yellow food coloring and added chocolate chips for the eyes and red twizzlers for the beaks.

For the Easter basket, I used coconut flakes with green food coloring for the grass and added twizzlers for the handle with jelly beans for the eggs.

Have fun and use peeps or any other Easter themed decorations!
