Simple Easter Cupcakes

Need a last minute Easter Cupcake idea? Here’s what you’ll need:  A cake mix (or your favorite white or yellow cake recipe),  food coloring gels to tint the batter,  a block of chocolate for shaved curls that you do with a vegetable peeler, then top it off with Cadbury mini Eggs.

That’s easy enough right? The kids love these and can help assemble them 🙂

See full instructions over at for my latest post with them. Have a beautiful Wednesday!!

    And if you put a Twizzler in either side of the top of the cupcake, it looks like a basket handle! The kids LOVED them when I made them 2 years ago!!!
