Here is the thing, my girls love cupcakes no matter what day of the week it is. Honestly, it doesn’t even have to be a holiday for them to get uber excited about cupcakes. But holidays, nonetheless are still totally cupcake worthy to them, as well.
For Easter, I usually make my special Peeps Bunnies Cake for my family. But this year, I also decided to add some Easter-themed cupcakes to the holiday dessert menu.
See Easter is all about the eggs. Real eggs crack open pretty easily. While my picky eater most certainly wouldn’t eat an egg if her life depended on it, she wouldn’t pass up an egg made of chocolate candy on top of a cupcake. Add some green colored frosting and jelly beans, and well you have a cupcake winner for both her and her older sister.
So, that is precisely what I did. I made Cracked Open Easter Egg Cupcakes. Yes, I used plain vanilla cupcakes pre-baked as the base. Then, colored white frosting green and frosted the cupcakes with it.
I also made adorable white chocolate colored eggs with pastel chocolate trim using this mold. The chocolate eggs were then cracked and placed atop the yummy cupcakes with jelly beans coming out of them.
How easy does that sound? Seriously, these take no time to assemble. Once they are put together, they are a sure-fire Easter hit for all.
Don’t believe me? Make Cracked Easter Egg Cupcakes for your gang.
