Easter and spring cupcake designs

To celebrate spring and Easter, I’m re-publishing my Spring Cupcakes designs, originally shared in 2013 . .

I’m not very good about decorating for holidays or going over the top with cutesy seasonal foods. But yesterday I had a wild hair and decided the kids and I should decorate cupcakes. I think it was the sunshine – it makes me do crazy things. I had fun getting creative with the kids trying to come up with fun easter cupcake designs for you. They are each 3 steps or less and EASY. We hope you enjoy them!

Step 1 – Your first step is make a batch of cupcakes. You can make them from scratch or make them from a box (like I did, there is only so much you can expect from a girl in one day).

Baby Chick Cupcakes

1.) Frost it with yellow frosting (I used vanilla frosting with couple drops of food coloring)

2.) Dip in yellow coconut. To make colored coconut, put plain coconut in a Ziploc bag, add a couple drops of food coloring, close bag and mix it around until color coats coconut.

3.) Add two eyes. You can use dark colored candies, chocolate chips or I used frosting. Then add a beak. I used a Reeses Pieces.

I actually got this idea from my Parade magazine.

Lindt Chocolate Bunny Cupcake

1.) Frost it with green frosting. You can get Key Lime frosting in the stores or just make regular frosting and add green.

2.) Dip in green coconut. To make colored coconut, put plain coconut in a Ziploc bag, add a couple drops of food coloring, close bag and mix it around until color coats coconut.

3.) Stick a toothpick in the Lindt chocolate bunny (it should be hollow) and stick it into cupcake. Add a few jelly beans that look like colored eggs.

Peep Cupcake

1.) Frost it with yellow frosting (or whatever color will complement your peep)

2.) Cut off the body from the peep. Settle it into the frosting.

3.) Sprinkle with colored coconut. To make colored coconut, put plain coconut in a Ziploc bag, add a couple drops of food coloring, close bag and mix it around until color coats coconut.

Candy-filled-Chick-Cupcake

Candy-Filled Chick Cupcake

1.) Frost it with green frosting. You can get Key Lime frosting in the stores or just make regular frosting and add green.

2.) Put a candy-filled animal-shaped egg in the middle of the frosting. I found Galerie Spring Time Candy-Filled Animal Shaped Eggs. I found them at Safeway. It was about $3 for 16 of them. They came in all shapes – little chicks, bunnies, pigs, cows. They were super cute. I picked the chick.

3.) Cover the rest in green coconut. To make colored coconut, put plain coconut in a Ziploc bag, add a couple drops of food coloring, close bag and mix it around until color coats coconut.

Junior-Mints-Rolo-CupcakePIN here

Junior Mints & Rolo Flower Cupcake

1.) Frost it with yellow frosting (or whatever color you’d like)

2.) Put an unwrapped Rolo candy in the middle.

3.) Then surround it with pastel Spring Limited Edition Junior Mints (the box had pastel blue or yellow inside)

Bumble-bee-flower-cupcakePIN here

Bumble Bee & Flower Cupcake

1.) Frost it with blue frosting (use white frosting and add blue food coloring)

2.) Dip sprinkle green coconut on the lower half of the cupcake, like grass. To make colored coconut, put plain coconut in a Ziploc bag, add a couple drops of food coloring, close bag and mix it around until color coats coconut.

3.) Use a pastel yellow Limited Edition Junior Mint and draw bee stripes on it with black frosting. Add a head and stinger. Add a couple flower sprinkles to the grass.

These are the Junior Mints that I used – they are pastels and probably only available this time of year. The Lindt chocolate bunnies are pictured in the back, they are mini. Then Peeps and Rolos are also pictured. Get creative. Look through the candy aisle at your local store and see what you can find that might make a cute decoration.

What do you think? Which one is your favorite? They are so easy to make and if someone as untalented, clumsy people as me can make them – you can do it. 

If you like what you see, I’d love for you to pin or share with your friends via Facebook or Twitter.
