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!!

    This is great idea, it’s so simple to make and look so cute. I’ve featured this cupcakes on my blog! I hope you don’t mind! If you don’t agree with that please contact me and I will remove it. All the best.

    Made these tonight. I give them 2 thumbs up for ease, short ingredient list and presentation. I needed something eye catching and cute for Easter entertaining. A huge hit! I used ready made frosting. I recommend and will be making again!

    Jenny they are just beautiful! They don’t look “simple” in the least…they may be, but you made them look just exquisite! Love the black and white wrappers, too. Tres chic 🙂

    These are so fun! I love that you used a black and white liner – so unexpected from the usual pastels of Easter. Have a great holiday!

    I love anything with mini eggs. I’m going to buy a giant bag tonight and I HOPE they will last until saturday nights dinner….

    I love the chocolate shavings used to make the nest. Such a good idea! Can’t wait to make my own!

    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!!!
