If there’s one chocolate that is craved by just about everyone around Easter, it’s the Cadbury Creme egg! Take it one step further and incorporate it into your chocolate cupcakes for extra flavor.
Not only is there half a creme egg on top, but there’s even more chocolate in the center of the cupcake. This dessert definitely has Easter written all over it.
Sometimes the Easter Bunny brings candy, not just Easter eggs! If your little ones enjoy gummy candy over chocolate, this is a great cupcake for them.
The Jelly Belly jelly beans come in many different pastel colors that make them perfect for your next Easter party.
Cutting a cake is never an easy task when you have kids making sure that every single piece is exaaaactly equal. Heaven forbid Billy gets a bigger piece then Sally.
With a pull apart Easter Bunny cake, you can be just as creative as you would be with a cake pan mold, but you don’t have to worry about cutting slices of cake.
In case your family isn’t as into the Easter Bunny as the rest of the general population, this time of year is fantastic for welcoming spring in with some beautiful cupcakes.
Use a few different icing heads to create stunning petals and blooms with some lightly dyed icing in a variety of pastel shades.
To continue with the theme of loving gummy candies as much, if not more than chocolate, these Easter cupcakes are topped off with some jelly beans that look an awful lot like eggs.
Since Easter is the time for new life, these sweet little nests are a fantastic way to talk to kids about Easter and new life in the Spring.
We all love to dive into dessert head-first, especially our children! Bake these fun cupcakes that depict bunnies diving into the cupcake head first, just like you!
Use white sprinkles to create that furry texture for the cute bunny butt and finish with some simple candies you can create at home.
This recipe is sure to be a crowd favorite because they not only taste good, but they’re topped with Mini Eggs and look absolutely stunning!
If you can fit these mini cupcakes into an egg carton, they make for an excellent dessert that is easy to transport. Delicious!
8. Garden Carrot Cupcakes
One of the most fun parts of spring is getting to plant a garden with your kiddies so you have fresh produce for the summer.
Use these cupcakes to ring in the new season at Easter with these cupcakes that have a ‘carrot’ stuck in the middle.
Easter would not be complete without some cute little chick-themed desserts! Make these cupcakes for Easter and you are guaranteed to have a hit dessert on your hands.
Your little ones can help with the icing because it doesn’t need to be exact to create a nest. The messier it is, the more natural it looks – right?
If making a nest isn’t really for you, you can still celebrate Easter with some bright little chicks that will make your cupcakes scream new life and spring!
We really can’t imagine a more child-friendly cupcake icing job than this one – it’s bright, adorable and oh so tasty!
Carrot Cake is absolutely incredible, especially when there are cream cheese icing, walnuts, and real carrots involved!
Make this dessert look a little more child-friendly by topping it off with some walnuts and a little edible carrot. Your little bunnies will be so excited to dig into this dessert.
Who doesn’t love some good Mini Eggs?! They’re simply delicious and serve as perfect toppings for cupcakes and cakes alike.
For Easter this year, add a cluster of eggs on top of each cupcake to imitate the idea of eggs in a nest. It’s a subtle detail in this recipe but it makes an obvious difference once you bite into the cupcakes.
Baby animals are a huge part of Easter and a lot of times children absolutely melt over the cuteness overload!
Make these fluffy looking lamb cupcakes as dessert for Easter dinner with your extended family to bring smiles to everyone’s faces.
As many mothers know, the children get all the attention once they are born and the same goes for Hens! They lay the eggs, but where’s their cute cupcake! Well, here it is!
This creative take on an Easter cupcake is a great alternative to add in with some baby chick Easter cupcakes as well so you have the mommas and their babies.
Peep Marshmallows are an integral part of North American Easter celebrations. They’re bright, fluffy and absolutely packed with sugar.
Instead of going with pastel colors for Easter, you can opt to go the bright color route using some Peep bunnies as inspiration.
