Easter Cupcakes

Easter is fast approaching and it’s a great excuse for getting creative in the kitchen, and you know I love a cupcake! Here’s how we made our Easter cupcakes, another simply idea to get the kids involved.

Easter Cupcakes

Ingredients

For 12 cupcakes you will need

    • 12 cupcakes (for recipe click here)
    • Cupcake corer
    • 2x 90g packs of mini eggs or similar
  • 3 flakes or similar chocolate
  • Tub of buttercream icing

Method

  1. I used my fail safe basic cupcake recipe to make 12 cupcakes, but you can use any cupcake recipe for this.

  2. Remove the centre portion of each cupcake with a cupcake corer as shown.

  3. Pipe icing in a ring around each cupcake.  I cheated and used a shop bought tub of ready made buttercream icing with a lemon flavour which was delicious, but of course you can make your own if you wish!Easter Cupcakes
  4. Crush the flakes, and sprinkle the chocolate around the edge on top of the icing to make a nest.  If some goes into the centre it doesn’t matter, it just adds to the flavour.Easter Cupcakes
  5. Put 4 mini eggs in the core.Easter Cupcakes
  6. Done! Perfect, yummy Easter cupcakes ready to enjoy!

NB. I am a home cook, and have had no formal training in preparing food. So these are just recipes that I use at home for the family. Whilst I have taken time to try and be as accurate as possible, some of the quantities are approximate.  I am always keen to learn, so if you think the recipe can be improved upon please take the time to comment below. I also love seeing your versions.

    OMG these look like heaven! How did you stop your children eating everything before they baked?? I have this issue with my toddler. We are hoping to make some Easter cakes on Good Friday xx #marvmondays

      They were rather yummy! A few mini eggs went AWOL along the way, but the girls are pretty good. My little boy on the other hand is a whole different story!
