The Easter Bunny is getting ready to stuff Easter eggs with goodies, which means you should be getting ready too! If you’re planning on baking something sweet for Easter, try some of the cutest Easter cupcake recipes ever to make this special day even better.
Easter Egg Cupcakes
Adults and kids will appreciate these beautiful Easter egg cupcakes. These pretty vanilla cupcakes are all about the accoutrement. To give the cupcakes this bird’s nest look, you’ll need to follow the lead of this expert baker below.
Need supplies to get these Easter cupcakes ready? Gather chocolate eggs or Jordan almonds, pretty Easter cupcake wrappers, and your favorite baking mix. If you don’t have an icing gun, we recommend one. It’ll help you achieve this professional looking frosting and will be a great staple for your kitchen for other recipes!
Easter Bunny Tail Cupcakes
Commercialized Easter is full of bunnies, chicks, eggs, and pastels. These little Easter Bunny tail cupcakes are so adorable and perfect for this spring holiday!
You can always simplify this recipe by using large and small marshmallows and nixing the bunny feet. However, if you’re up for a challenge then follow this baker’s recipe tutorial to learn how to make these cupcakes. Just make sure to snap a bunch of photos before you’re done. They’re almost too cute to eat!
Easter Chick Cupcakes
We love these Easter chick cupcakes because they’re yummy and stuffed with a Twinkie filling! Watch the video below to learn how to pipe copy-cat Twinkie frosting into the center of cupcakes and top it all off with cute icing.
Not in the mood to make icing from scratch? Buy store-bought frosting and yellow food coloring for a quick option. Just make sure you either have little candies or more icing on-hand to finish the chick’s adorable little faces. Finish your Easter dessert cupcakes by setting them out on a thematic platter in the center of the dessert table.
Easter Egg Basket Cupcakes
We showed you how to make easter cupcakes above with eggs nestled in a nest, but not in an Easter basket! These cupcakes call for foil-wrapped chocolate eggs, fondant, and lots of icing. They’re a bit more ornate, so make them a day ahead so you’re not rushing on Easter morning!
At Candydirect.com, we love a theme. We think these finished Easter basket cupcakes would look beautiful in an ornate Easter basket. Get the look by stuffing the bottom of a basket with rolled up paper then covering it with a pretty cloth. Nestle the cupcakes on top for a beautiful presentation.
Easter Egg Hunt Cupcakes
Go Easter egg hunting around the house and when it’s time for dessert! This cupcake recipe is an Easter egg hunt in its own right, since there’s a secret cream egg inside.
Make the tops of these cupcakes look like sunny side up eggs or daisies. Also, feel free to bake this your way by using a boxed cake mix you love or a family recipe everybody expects to have on Easter Sunday.
Easter Carrot Cupcakes
We’ve showed you how to make Easter egg cupcakes, Easter Bunny cupcakes, and more. Now, it’s time to show you how to make Easter carrot cupcakes.
These particular cupcakes aren’t made of actual carrot cake, but you could easily modify them to be! What’s most important is the carrot top and root. We like the chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing because it looks more like dirt and provides a pretty backdrop for your bright orange carrot made of frosting.
Easter Daffodil Cupcakes
Depending on where you live, tulips, daffodils, violets, and more should be blooming around Easter. Make your Easter dessert bloom as well by making these beautiful daffodil cupcakes.
To get this effect, use a piping gun or professional icing set. It’ll be much easier to shape the petals of this frosting daffodil that way. If you’re great with fondant, you can create gorgeous flowers to go on top of your cupcakes too!
Easter Eggshell Cupcakes
This recipe is so cool! You bake the cupcakes inside actual Easter eggshells, making for an impressive presentation.
If you’re planning on making a quiche for Easter breakfast or a bunch of baked goods, then this recipe will be great because nothing will go to waste. Just keep the egg whites and yolks in a separate bowl and eggshells in another to make all of your Easter dinner, dessert, and breakfast recipes.
Happy Easter, everyone! We hope you’ll enjoy baking these beautiful Easter cupcakes and sharing them with friends and family.
